BitTorrent Tech Talks are one-hour sessions dedicated to the stuff that keeps us busy / keeps us up at night / keeps us coding. From time to time, we post them here. Because sharing.
In this edition of Tech Talks: an overview of some C++ gems. I threw this talk together because my team was about to start a new project in C++11. Since it’s fairly new, I figured some of it might not be as well-known as it should. Fundamentally, I’m pretty excited about all the new possibilities in C++11. Even higher-level abstractions, at even lower cost than C++98.
In the video below, we go over for-loops, automatic type deduction, lambda functions and more.
Correction: I say that lambdas with an empty capture statement defaults to by-value, which is incorrect. It defaults to not capturing anything.
