“Modern C++ Template Programming” with Nicolai Josuttis

Meeting C++ 2018 offers also a workshop with Nicolai Josuttis:

Modern C++ Template Programming

by Jens Weller

From the article:

Each and every C++ programmer uses templates. Containers such as vector<> or array<>, strings, algorithms such as sort(), iterators, and I/O streams are all implemented as generic code. Modern C++ adds type traits, smart pointers, and template member functions such as emplace(), and generic lambdas as a tricky form of generic code.

Nevertheless the knowledge and understanding of how to implement and use templates is very limited and each and every programmer is sooner or later getting uncertain.

This workshop therefore discusses templates for a whole day to make clear what it means to use templates and how to use them in practice. As a result the general understanding of templates will be improved and generic code might become more helpful and less surprising.

Interactive Metaprogramming Shell based on Clang

by Ábel Sinkovics

From the talk description:

Developing metaprograms is hard and painful. Templight (http://plc.inf.elte.hu/templight/) supports the development and debugging of template metaprograms, but the code has to be recompiled after every minor change and tricks are needed to retrieve useful information about the result...

Expression Templates Revisited

Expression Templates Revisited

by Klaus Iglberger

From the talk description:

Since their invention in 1995, Expression Templates (ETs) have proven to be a valuable tool for many C++ template libraries. Especially numerics libraries quickly embraced them as salvation for the performance deficiencies of standard C++. This reputation as performance optimization...

Generic Parallel Programming

A new video from Meeting C++ 2014:

Generic parallel programming for scientific and technical applications

by Guntram Berti

From the talk description:

Technical and scientific applications dealing with a high computational load today face the challenge to match the increasingly parallel nature of current and future hardware. The talk shows how the increased complexity of software can be controlled by using generic programming technologies. The process and its advantages are introduced using many concrete examples...

Pruning Error Messages From C++ Template Code

Pruning Error Messages From C++ Template Code

by Roland Bock

From the talk description:

Many template libraries are regarded with ambivalent feelings by developers: On the one hand, such libraries can offer wonderful functionality. On the other hand, they are dreaded for the sheer amount of error messages spilled out...
