Workshop: C++ ecosystem and Modern C++ tooling
When legacy code is mixed with modern language features and patterns, when the rich heritage of C++ and its compatibility restrictions co-exist with the adoption of best practices from other languages and technologies, some of us C++ developers become lost and need to follow and stick to a more conservative path. Recent independent research studies show that developers are still staying with C++11, slowly adopting any new standards. Will C++20 change that? And from the practical perspective, what does it mean to be productive when developing in Modern C++? Can a tool help us become a language guru? Are there tricks my IDE can teach me to make C++ coding a bit easier? In this workshop we’ll cover the modern C++ technological landscape, as well as learn how a modern IDE can help dealing with the language and adopting to the changes. As a bonus, you’ll learn a few tips on how you can get the most out of CLion, a cross-platform C++ IDE by JetBrains!
