Short course: Modern STL Basics

This 1.5 day short course will be given by Nicolai Josuttis. Nicolai Josuttis is a member of the C++ Standard Committee for over 20 years and the author of four C++ books, e.g. The C++ Standard Library - A Tutorial and Reference; C++20 - The Complete Guide; C++17 - The Complete Guide; and C++ Move Semantics - The Complete Guide.

In the course participants will learn the following:

Modern STL Basics:

  • Algorithms (e.g. the various sorts() algorithms we have and why)
  • Data structures including unordered containers
  • Iterators (and why raw pointers can be used like them)

Then on top of that:

  • Lambdas (and “callables” for algorithms, maybe including function objects)
  • Iterators categories and why raw pointers work for iterators
  • How generic programming helps (incl. how std::array is implemented)
  • Parallel algorithms
  • C++20 Ranges and views (and how views compromise certain C++/STL principles)
