About this event

C++ has been powering the tech sector for more than 3 decades, and it has evolved significantly to keep serving the industry’s needs. Over this evolution, the design of software has changed, giving birth to what many call Modern C++. But what is Modern C++?

In this event, we are joined by Francesco Zoffoli, Software Engineer at Meta and author of the book C++ Fundamentals, who will give a comprehensive overview of modern C++ and its most defining features, explaining why they improve over the existing practices and how these can be applied to your programs.

We’ll look at the novel approach to designing software that the latest C++ versions encourage. Through several examples, comparing the old ways with the new approach, we’ll see how the features introduced in C++11 and later simplify programs and makes them more correct and efficient.

The examples will cover features of the language, like move semantic and lambdas, as well as standard library additions, like smart pointers and variants. For all of them, we’ll see what are the underlying principles that make the modern approach better.

The talk is intended for anyone interested in C++ and/or software engineering and development. Moreover, no previous C++ knowledge is required.
