C++17 STL Solutions [Video]

More Information
  • Learn about the new core language features and the problems they were intended to solve.
  • Understand the inner workings and requirements of iterators by implementing them.
  • Explore algorithms, functional programming style, and lambda expressions.
  • Leverage the rich, portable, fast, and well-tested set of well-designed algorithms provided in the STL.
  • Work with strings the STL way instead of handcrafting C-style code.
  • Understand standard support classes for concurrency and synchronization, and how to put them to work.

solve many problems. The upcoming version of C++ will see programmers change the way they code. If you want to grasp the practical usefulness of the C++17 STL in order to write smarter, fully portable code, then this course is for you.

Beginning with new language features, this course will help you understand the languageā€™s mechanics and library features, and offers insight into how they work. Unlike other courses, ours takes an implementation-specific, problem-solution approach that will help you quickly overcome hurdles. You will learn the core STL concepts, such as containers, algorithms, utility classes, lambda expressions, iterators, and more, while working on practical real-world videos. These videos will help you get the most from the STL and show you how to program in a better way.

By the end of the course, you will be up to date with the latest C++17 features and save time and effort while solving tasks elegantly using the STL.

All the code and supporting files for this course are available on Github at https://github.com/PacktPublishing/CPlusPlus17-STL-Solutions

Style and Approach

This solution-based guide will show you how to make the best use of C++ together with the STL to squeeze more out of the standard language.

  • Learn the latest features of C++ and how to define better code by using the Standard Library (STL). Reduce the development time for your applications.
  • Understand the scope and power of STL features to deal with real-world problems.
  • Compose your own algorithms without forfeiting the simplicity and elegance of the STL way.

Jacek Galowicz

Jacek Galowicz obtained his master of science in electrical engineering/computer engineering at RWTH Aachen University, Germany. While at university, he enjoyed working as a student assistant in teaching and research, and he participated in several scientific publications. During and after his studies, he worked as a freelancer and implemented applications as well as kernel drivers in C and C++, touching various areas, including 3D graphics programming, databases, network communication, and physics simulation. In recent years, he has been programming performance- and security-sensitive microkernel operating systems for Intel x86 virtualization at Intel and FireEye in Braunschweig, Germany. He has a strong passion for modern C++ implementations of low-level software, and he tries hard to combine high performance with an elegant coding style. Learning purely functional programming and Haskell in recent years triggered his drive to implement generic code with the aid of meta programming.
