(Some) good C++ practices

Added by Pinke, Christopher over 8 years ago

Dear colleagues,

next wednesday we will have our next C++ user group meeting.
It will take place at

16.15h in room 0|08 in the GSC (Giersch Science Center).

Please not the different place.

Alessandro Sciarra will give his talk:

(Some) good C++ practices

Good practices are in any programming language crucial in order
to deliver high quality products. Moreover, languages evolve and,
even if they are compatible with previous standards for obvious reasons,
new syntax (and more in general new functionalities) should be preferred.

In the first part of the talk, a brief overview of C++ cast operators
will be given. Then, a very frequent class hierarchy will be analysed,
trying to understand why the most naive design often fails and how
to proceed to have a more robust, comprehensible and extensible code
in such a situation.

Also, we will have time for open discussions on C++ topics after the talk.
if you have a C++ programming question, bring it along!

The following meeting will take place at the end of january.
If any of you would like to give a talk, do not hesitate to contact me or Vinzent.
