There have been several updates to C++ over the years. In this course, learn best practices that can help you produce higher-quality C++ code by leveraging tools and new features. To begin, instructor Troy Miles provides a high-level overview of the major features introduced in the 2011, 2014, and 2017 updates to the C++ language. Next, he goes over a few tools that can help you improve your code, including how to boost your code’s quality and reliability using static analyzers. Troy also shares practical tips for using the new C++ features correctly, as well as rules and techniques for managing objects.

Topics include:

  • Major new C++ features
  • Turning on modern C++
  • Letting the compiler help
  • Using the new features correctly
  • Using auto type deduction
  • Using lambdas
  • Range-based for loops
  • How C++ and the Standard Template Library name things
  • Making the best of the filesystem library
  • Managing objects
