C++11 -- The New Standard

In this class we’ll be using real C++11 compilers to explore the new standard, including these specific topics:

Classes: override and final, =default and =delete, in-class member initializers, delegating and inheriting constructors
Move Semantics: copy elision, rvalue references, and perfect forwarding
Concurrency: high- and low-level lock-based components. Atomics and the C++ memory model.
General: range-based for loops, nullptr, uniform initialization, string encodings, unicode, and auto
Functional: Lambda expressions, std::bind, std::function, user-defined literals, and constexpr
Exceptions: noexcept, nesting, copying, and re-throwing, system_error and friends
Containers: arrays, tuples, initializer_lists, emplacement, scoped allocators, and hash tables
Basic Types: standard-layout types, extended integer types, generalized unions, alignments, and scoped enums
Smart Pointers: unique_ptr, shared_ptr, weak_ptr, make_shared, allocate_shared
Templates: extended SFINAE, working with decltype and declval, and variadic templates

Because the earlier C++03 standard is familiar, and will still be relevant for many years, we offer special attention to future-proofing and to the emulation of C++11 features in C++03 using 3rd-party libraries such as Boost.

Who It’s For: experienced C++ programmers who want to be ready for C++11.

Format: Each day is divided roughly into four blocks, each consisting of an hour of lecture and thirty minutes of hands-on exercises. Ideally presented as a 5-day course, it is scalable to 3 days customized to your team’s needs.
