    C++11 Features

    The course starts with an overview of the features introduced in C++11 such as type inference, initializer lists, range based for loop, lambda functions and strongly typed enums.

    Right References en Move Constructors

    Next, the right references and the performance gains that can be achieved by using move constructors in addition to copy constructors are discussed.

    Inheritance Additions

    The new possibilities regarding inheritance with the keywords default, delete, override and final are also covered. The implementation of virtual functions and the need for virtual destructors are discussed as well.

    Smart Pointers

    In addition, smart pointers are looked at in detail and unique pointers, shared pointers and weak pointers are treated.

    Operator Overloading and Templates

    Operator overloading and templates are also on the program, which focuses on variadic templates and perfect forwarding.

    RAII Pattern

    The modern C++ Resource Acquisition is Initialization or RAII idiom is discussed with exception handling.


    Threads as well as the synchronization between threads are part of the standard and are discussed. This also includes asynchronous calls with promises and futures.

    C++11, C++17 and C++20 Features

    Then specific C++11, C++17 and C++20 features are discussed such as optional types, structured binding declarations and constructions from the world of functional programming such as fold expressions.

    Advanced STL

    The course concludes with an overview of advanced options of the Standard Template Library STL.
