Video available: Herb Sutter, "Writing Good C++14 by Default" -- CppCon 2015 day 2 plenary session

sutter-cppcon15-v.PNGCppCon is in full swing, and once again all the sessions, panels, and lightning talks are being professionally recorded and will be available online worldwide for free. Like last year, expect them about a month after the conference ends.

This year the team is trying to get a few of the big talks up early while still busily recording the 100+ others still in progress. Yesterday, they posted Bjarne Stroustrup's opening keynote video less than 48 hours after the live talk, and we're pleased to see that as of this writing over 10,000 of you have already enjoyed it online in its first day!

Today, the team posted the video for Herb Sutter's Day 2 plenary talk, which he described as "part 2 of Bjarne's keynote" with a focus on type and memory safety with live demos. If you couldn't be at CppCon on Tuesday in person, we hope you enjoy it:

Writing Good C++14... by Default (YouTube) (slides)

by Herb Sutter, CppCon 2015 day 2 plenary session

This talk continues from Bjarne Stroustrup’s Monday keynote to describe how the open C++ core guidelines project is the cornerstone of a broader effort to promote modern C++. Using the same cross-platform effort Stroustrup described, this talk shows how to enable programmers write production-quality C++ code that is, among other benefits, type-safe and memory-safe by default -- free of most classes of type errors, bounds errors, and leak/dangling errors -- and still exemplary, efficient, and fully modern C++.


We hope posting these few highlights while CppCon is still in progress can help to let everyone in the worldwide C++ community share in the news and feel a part of the gathering here in the Seattle neighborhood this week. Even if you couldn't be here in person this year to enjoy the full around-the-clock technical program and festival atmosphere, we hope you enjoy this nugget in the video presentation.

Could someone enlighten me of the advantage of that local sp (add reference) before the call to f(sp.get()); about 0:59:15 in the talk ?
