  • Course Modern C++ Programming : Content

    In the course Modern C++ the new and advanced aspects of the C++ language based on the standards C++11, C++14, C++17 and C++20 are extensively discussed.

    C++11 Features

    The course starts with an overview of the features that have been 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 right references are discussed and the performance gains that can be booked by using move constructors in addition to copy constructors.

    Inheritance Enhancements

    The new possibilities with respect to inheritance with the keywords default, delete, override and final are also on the course program. The implementation of virtual functions and the need for virtual destructors are discussed as well.

    Smart Pointers

    Attention is paid to smart pointers like unique pointers, shared pointers and weak pointers.

    Operator Overloading en Templates

    Operator overloading and templates are also on the program and variadic templates and perfect forwarding are treated.

    RAII Pattern

    The modern C ++ Resource Acquisition is Initialization or RAII idiom is explained while discussing exception handling.


    Attention is also paid to threads as well as the synchronization between threads which are now part of the C++ standard. This also includes asynchronous calls with promises and futures.

    C++11, C++17 en C++20 Features

    Next 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 features of the Standard Template Library STL .

    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.
