Introduction to C++20 is a four-day onsite training course with programming examples, taught by Mateusz Pusz. It is offered at the Gaylord Rockies from 09:00 to 17:00 Aurora time (MDT) on the weekends both before and after the conference, September 10th, 11th, 17th and 18th, 2022 (immediately prior to and following the conference). Lunch is included.
C++20 is not just yet another incremental update but a profound change to the C++ language and its standard library. With many essential features added, this C++ version may impact us even more than C++11 did nearly 10 years ago.
The C++ compiler developers are working hard to make their product conforming to the new specification and lots of features are already available to play with. During the training, a particular emphasis will be put on learning and practicing with the most prominent C++20 features like Concepts, Ranges, and Coroutines, but also we will try many other smaller features of the new language.
During the workshop we will work with the latest version of the compiler thanks to the Compiler Explorer, so no special environment preparation is needed.
The class’s content details are available here.
