Effective Modern C++: 42 Specific Ways to Improve Your Use of C++11 and C++14

Effective Modern C++ follows the proven guideline-based, example-driven format of Scott Meyers’ earlier books, but covers entirely new material. This book describes how to write effective software using C++11 and C++14—i.e. using modern C++.

Topics in this book include:

  • The pros and cons of braced initialization, noexcept specifications, perfect forwarding, and smart pointer make functions
  • The relationships among std::movestd::forward, rvalue references, and universal references
  • Techniques for writing clear, correct, effective lambda expressions
  • How std::atomic differs from volatile, how each should be used, and how they relate to C++’s concurrency API
  • How best practices in “old” C++ programming (i.e., C++98) require revision for software development in modern C++
