Advanced C++

Objectives

Latest changes of the C++ standard, C++ 11, C++ 14 and the future C++ 17 are introducing new concepts within the C++ language aiming to make the language more efficient and more intuitive. It is imperative for a C++ programmer to get familiar with these concepts as they will become more and more common. This introductory course aims to present some important concepts from C++ 11 and 14 using a comprehensive set on small example programs to help their understanding.

Prerequisites

Medium knowledge of C++ 03 programming is required in order to maximize the benefits of attending to course.
