Book Description

C++ has ​ ​come ​ ​a ​ ​long ​ ​way ​ ​and ​ ​has ​ ​now ​ ​been ​ ​adopted ​ ​in ​ ​several ​ ​contexts. Its ​ ​key ​strengths ​ ​are ​ ​its ​ ​software ​ ​infrastructure ​ ​and ​ ​resource-constrained applications. ​ ​The ​C++ ​ ​17 ​ ​release ​ ​will ​ ​change ​ ​the ​ ​way ​ ​developers ​ ​write code, ​ ​and ​ ​this ​ ​course ​ ​will ​ ​help ​you ​ ​master ​ ​your ​ ​developing ​ ​skills ​ ​with ​ ​C++. With ​ ​real-world, ​ ​practical ​ ​examples ​ ​explaining ​ ​each ​ ​concept, ​ ​the ​ ​course is divided into three modules where ​ ​will begin ​ ​by ​ ​introducing ​ ​you ​ ​to ​ ​the ​ ​latest ​ ​features ​ ​in ​ ​C++ ​ ​17. ​ ​It ​ ​encourages clean ​code ​ ​practices ​ ​in ​ ​C++ ​ ​in ​ ​general ​ ​and ​ ​demonstrates ​ ​the ​ ​GUI app-development ​ ​options ​ ​in ​ ​C++. ​ ​You’ll ​ ​get ​ ​tips ​ ​on ​ ​avoiding ​ ​memory ​ ​leaks using ​ ​smart-pointers.

In the next module, ​ ​you’ll ​ ​see ​ ​how ​ ​multi-threaded ​programming can ​ ​help ​ ​you ​ ​achieve ​ ​concurrency ​ ​in ​ ​your ​ ​applications. We start with a brief introduction to the fundamentals of multithreading and concurrency concepts. We then take an in-depth look at how these concepts work at the hardware-level as well as how both operating systems and frameworks use these low-level functions.

You will learn about the native multithreading and concurrency support available in C++ since the 2011 revision, synchronization and communication between threads, debugging concurrent C++ applications, and the best programming practices in C++.

Moving ​ ​on, ​ ​you’ll ​ ​get ​ ​an ​ ​in-depth ​ ​understanding ​ ​of ​ ​the ​ ​C++ ​ ​Standard Template ​ ​Library. ​Where we show 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 recipes. These recipes will help you get the most from the STL and show you how to program in a better way.

What You Will Learn

  • ​Write ​ ​modular ​ ​C++ ​ ​applications ​ ​in ​ ​terms ​ ​of ​ ​the ​ ​existing ​ ​and newly ​ ​introduced ​ ​features
  • ​ ​Identify ​ ​code-smells, ​ ​clean ​ ​up, ​ ​and ​ ​refactor ​ ​legacy ​ ​C++ applications
  • ​ ​Leverage ​ ​the ​ ​possibilities ​ ​provided ​ ​by ​ ​Cucumber ​ ​and ​ ​Google Test/Mock ​ ​to automate ​ ​test ​ ​cases
  • Deep dive into the details of the how various operating systems currently implement multithreading
  • Choose the best multithreading APIs when designing a new application
  • Explore the use of mutexes, spin-locks, and other synchronization concepts and see how to safely pass data between threads
  • 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
  • Use the filesystem library addition available with the C++17 STL
