Objects, Lifetimes, and References, oh my...
by Nicole Mazzuca
Summary of the talk:
How does the C++ abstract machine really work at the lowest levels? Why does the committee design its rules the way they do? Gain insight into the object model of C++, from references to passing semantics to copy elision. C++ is a complicated language full of arcane rules and complicated tangents - learn how it's all tied together in this basic model of locations, objects, and values.
