Advanced Modern C++ is by far the most successful training I provide in-house for big corporations. It is very well scored by students from various backgrounds ranging from embedded to HFT. Typically this training is too long for a conference class but CppCon is special 🙂 Having six days of online workshops in the conference schedule gives us the unique opportunity to not only cover a single feature (like most other training on conferences do) but provide a complete training on Modern C++.However, please do not be misled with the quite generic outline of the course. This training is not an introduction to the C++ language. Like the title suggests it is an advanced workshop full of hands-on exercises. It targets the developers who already have professional experience with C++ and who know the problems caused by the careless way of coding in this language. The workshop aims to strengthen the knowledge about the C++ language and show how to avoid many of the problems that often appear in the production code. — Mateusz Pusz
Advanced Modern C++ is a six-day training course with programming exercises taught by Mateusz Pusz. It is offered online from 09:00 to 15:00 MDT (11:00 to 17:00 EDT, 17:00 to 23:00 CET), Friday, October 22nd through Sunday, October 24th, 2021 (before the conference) and Saturday, October 30th through Monday, November 1st, 2021 (immediately after the conference).
C++ is a hard and complicated programming language. When used correctly it delivers the best possible performance. Unfortunately, it is often misused which is a source of many problems. However, it turns out that in the case of conscious usage of selected language features it can be relatively easy to produce high-quality software with great performance and resistance to programming errors. Such a coding style is called Modern C++.
This is a complete course on Modern C++. In the beginning we build the understanding of the most important features of the C++ language and we learn how to use this language in performance-constrained projects. After that we describe the most important utilities provided by the C++ Standard Library to deliver projects that are safe, easy to use and hard to abuse. Even though we work with C++ templates through the entire training in the end we make a deep dive to all advanced topics connected with this subject.
- Very enlightening, broadening mental horizons
- Should become mandatory for Software Architects and Engineers using C++
- A very valuable training that really broadens the knowledge and a general understanding of C++ language
- Thanks for showing what I do not know and what I should learn
- Difficult, thought-provoking, fast lane towards the new C++
- I learned a lot of the fundamentals of c++ that I had only a vague idea about before. I’m sure it will be very valuable for my practical work and I wish I would have attended the training already earlier.
- Great, exceptional, I have never seen a training like this in the past. It is very complete and the most detailed one that I have participated.
- Valuable, deep explanation of topics, knowledge that would be difficult/impossible to get from books, gather from trainer’s experience
The training targets the developers who already have professional experience with C++ programming language and who know the problems caused by the careless way of coding in this language. The workshop aims to strengthen the knowledge about the C++ language and show how to avoid many of the problems that often appear in the production code.
- C++ Basics for Experts
- Coding with performance in mind
- Utilities that every C++ developer should know and use
- Templates demystified
