Overview of the New C++ (C++0x)
Specification of the next version of C++ (“C++0x”) is nearing completion, and many compilers (e.g., Visual C++ and Gnu C++) already offer several features from the revised language. And such features! auto-declared variables reduce typing drudgery and syntactic noise; Unicode and threading support address important functionality gaps; and rvalue references and variadic templates facilitate the creation of more efficient, more flexible libraries. The standard library gains resource-managing smart pointers, new containers, additional algorithms, support for regular expressions, and more. Altogether, C++0x offers much more than “old” C++. This intensively technical seminar introduces the most important new features in C++0x and explains how to get the most out of them.
Participants will gain:
- Knowledge of the most important C++0x features and how they help produce better programs.
- Insights into how new features solve important problems.
- Understanding of which features are useful primarily to library writers, which to class authors, and which to virtually all C++ developers.
- Availability information regarding which features are available on which platforms.
Who should attend
Designers and developers who are using, considering using, or wish to know about the expanded capabilities of C++0x. Attendees should be experienced with C++ and comfortable with its primary features (e.g., classes, templates, inheritance, STL, etc.). Familiarity with threading concepts (e.g., threads and mutexes) is helpful, but is not essential.
