Room changed: club room

C++ was developed over 30 years ago and has undergone many changes and five standardizations over that time. Safety is important in all disciplines of computer science; primarily in safety critical systems in which memory or resource errors are catastrophic. This talk will focus on two of the most recent standards (C++11, 14) which have seen big changes in best practice; changes which focus on a safer language, but without the overhead of other ‘safe’ languages. The important topics covered are type safety and memory safety. It is apparent that some progress has been made on the idea of safety and consistency and I will discuss the impact of individual changes in this respect. There are some standard rule covered in this talk that, if followed, will solve common programming errors.
