AAAARGH!? Adopting Almost Always Auto Reinforces Good Habits!?

by Andy Bond

Summary of the talk:

Prominent members of the C++ community are advocating the "almost-always-auto" idiom, but there are understandable concerns from many about its implications. This case study will demonstrate how it may be applied in different situations, suggest ways to avoid performance penalties, introduce algorithms to minimize the "almost" part, and discuss the overall impact.
