Announcing Meeting C++ Trainings!

Meeting C++ Trainings - a site for online trainings launched on Monday:

Announcing the start of Meeting C++ Trainings

by Jens Weller

From the article:

Meeting C++ organizes now its own online trainings, learn C++ from the leading experts!

You can choose trainings from several trainers and participate in the training you need online. Both half day and full day trainings are available. Right now the listed trainings start by mid June and go into July, but soon also Trainings in August and September will be available. My goal is to offer 1-2 Trainings per trainer in one quarter...

Announcing Meeting C++ 2020!

Today I have the honor to give the kick-off for the official planning and participation in Meeting C++2020:

Announcing Meeting C++ 2020

From the article:

Meeting C++ returns with its 2020 conference edition! Like in the previous years, we'll be meeting in Berlin from the 12. - 14th November!

With the current situation of COVID-19, planning events for this year is difficult, though I have decided to go ahead and start the preparations for Meeting C++ 2020! I will keep you posted through out 2020 on the changes for this years conference!

shared_ptr - basics and internals with examples--Hitesh Kumar

Did you know it?

shared_ptr - basics and internals with examples

by Hitesh Kumar

From the article:

The C++11 std::shared_ptr<T> is a shared ownership smart pointer type. Several shared_ptr instances can share the management of an object's lifetime through a common control block. The managed object is deleted when the last owning shared_ptr is destroyed (or is made to point to another object). Memory management by shared_ptr is deterministic because the timing of a managed object's destruction is predictable and in the developer's control. Hence, std::shared_ptr brings deterministic automatic memory management to C++, without the overhead of garbage collection. Here is a basic example of shared_ptr...

Virtual, final and override in C++--Jonathan Boccara

3 keywords that go together.

Virtual, final and override in C++

by Jonathan Boccara

From the article:

C++11 added two keywords that allow to better express your intentions with what you want to do with virtual functions: override and final. They allow to express your intentions both to fellow humans reading your code as well as to the compiler.

However, as we will see, the intention of override is super useful, but the intention of final… is harder to understand.

Both apply to virtual functions, which are the member functions of a base class that can be overridden by the classes that derive (inherit) from it...

Move, simply--Herb Sutter

No need to get complicated.

Move, simply

by Herb Sutter

From the article:

C++ “move” semantics are simple, but they are still widely misunderstood. This post is an attempt to shed light on that situation...

Reverse For Loops in C++--Carlos Buchart

How do you do it?

Reverse For Loops in C++

by Carlos Buchart

From the article:

As we saw when working on dynamic bitsets, it can be useful to traverse a collection backwards, from its last element to its first one.

It would be nice to be able to use C++11 range for loops to iterate backwards. But unfortunately, there is no such reverse range-for: range-for only works forwards.

Let’s see how to traverse a collection backwards by using a range for loop...
