  • Course C++ 11-14-17-20 : Content

    In the course C++11-14-17-20 the participants learn the new features of the C++ standard that have been added since C++11. The language C++ is indispensable in the world of high performance and embedded software.

    C++ Standard

    Since the C++98 standard it has remained silent for a long time, but since C++11 C++ has undergone a steady development in recent years with the releases of C++14, C++17 and C++20.

    C++11 Features

    The course starts with an overview of a number of new features in C++11 such as type inference, uniform initialization, lambda functions and strongly typed enums.

    Rvalue Reference

    Next the new Rvalue reference types in C++11 are discussed, which enable move constructors instead of copy constructors. The Golden Rule of 5 for classes with pointer members is also discussed.

    Smart Pointers

    An important addition to the C++ standard introduced with C++11 are the smart pointers. These are important in preventing memory leaks and unique, shared and weak smart pointers are discussed.

    Multiple Threads

    Furthermore attention is paid to multiple threads that have been part of the C++ standard since C++11. With threads C++ applications can be parallelized and make optimal use of multiple cores. The synchronization of threads by locking mechanisms such as mutexes and condition variables are also part of the course program.

    C++14 Features

    The new features of C++14 including generalized lambda captures, return type deduction, shared mutexes and shared locking are then discussed.

    C++17 and C++20 Features

    Finally attention is paid to changes and additions to the standard that have come with the release of C++17 and C++20 such as folding expressions, optional types and immediate functions.

    Course Forms

    All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.


    We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.

    Course times

    The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.


    We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.


    Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.


    The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.


    The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.


    At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.


    The intellectual property rights of the published course content, also referred to as an information sheet, belong to SpiralTrain. It is not allowed to publish the course information, the information sheet, in written or digital form without the explicit permission of SpiralTrain. The course content is to be understood as the description of the course content in sentences as well as the division of the course into modules and topics in the modules.
