Advanced Modern C++

Learn the relevant library and language changes

If you are a developer with prior working experience in C++, the Advanced Modern C++ training course is designed to take your C++ skills to the next level. Through a combination of modern techniques from C++11, C++14, C++17, C++20, and even a preview of some C++23 feature, the course’s comprehensive program will equip you with the knowledge and tools to write better, more efficient, and less error-prone code.

The primary goal of the Advanced Modern C++ training course is to help you understand how the latest advancements in C++ can significantly enhance your coding abilities. We will explore a wide range of modern features, techniques, and best practices that can make your codebase better organized, easier to maintain, and more intuitive to reason about. By leveraging these improvements, you will be able to write code more effectively, with a focus on reducing bugs and increasing overall code quality.

Throughout the course we will build upon your existing C++ knowledge and fill any gaps that you may have encountered. We will provide a comprehensive review of core concepts and reinforce your understanding of key language features. Additionally, we will dive into advanced topics, such as move semantics, automatic type deduction, smart pointers, lambda expressions, and template metaprogramming. You will learn how to leverage these techniques to write concise, expressive, and efficient code.

Course contents:

We had a perfectly tailored training to learn modern C++ features and to understand all the things in detail. Now we are well prepared for future C++ projects and for using C++ more efficiently. This was the most sophisticated and gripping training I’ve attended so far.
