Five Ways to Improve Your C++ Programming with C++0x Defaulted and Deleted Functions

C++0x introduces two new function specifiers: =default and =delete. The former instructs the compiler to implicitly define a member function that it wouldn't define otherwise. The latter suppresses the implicit definition of a member function. Find out how to use this mechanism to reduce labor-intensive tasks, improve performance, and make your classes more secure.

An Interview with C++ Creator Bjarne Stroustrup

Bjarne Stroustrup talks about the imminent C++0x standard and the forthcoming features it brings, the difficulties of standardizing programming languages in general, the calculated risks that the standards committee can afford to take with new features, and even his own New Year's resolutions.

C++ Tutorial: Use std::tuple To Simulate Compact Heterogeneous Containers

Std::tuple is a compact, fixed size container that packs a variable number of elements of different types. This property makes tuples useful in simulating multiple return types for a function, assigning and comparing multiple values simultaneously and abstracting complex data structures.

C++ Tutorial: 10 New STL Algorithms That Will Make You A More Productive Developer

Unquestionably, the most effective tool for a C++ programmer's productivity is the Standard library's rich collection of algorithms. In 2008, about 20 new algorithms were voted into the C++0x draft standard. These new algorithms let you among the rest copy n elements intuitively, perform set theory operations, and handle partitions conveniently. Find out how to use these algorithms to make your code more efficient and intuitive.

Top White Papers and Webcasts

  • By now you've likely heard of Agile development and building products in small incremental pieces, so you can get real feedback along the way. In fact, you may even be considering using Agile on your next project. But where do you start? Agile can take a lot of forms, such as Scrum or Kanban. Each form has advantages and disadvantages, but both will help your team get the right feedback they need to build great products. Read this white paper to find out which one is right for you.

  • Organizations are increasingly gravitating toward mobile-first application development as they assess the need to revamp their application portfolios to support touch computing and mobility. Consumerization has brought higher expectations for application usability along with the mobile devices themselves. Enterprises are increasingly shifting their new application acquisitions and development efforts toward mobile platforms. With this backdrop, it is natural to expect application platform vendors to invest in …
