If you want a complete overview of all C++20 features, including references to other more deep-dive sessions at CppCon 2020 on certain topics, then this session is for you.

Marc’s talk will give you the confidence and familiarity you need to embrace the latest version of C++.

  • constexpr changes,
  • designated initializers,
  • the spaceship operator,
  • string literals as template parameters,
  • feature test macros,
  • conditional explicit,
  • immediate functions,
  • and more.
