Introduction to modern C++

Old 1 Comment on Introduction to modern C++ 26

C++ isn’t an “old” style programming language anymore. With the entry of C++11 and upcoming versions, the C++ language has gone to a whole new level, which primarily focuses on clear, flexible semantics.

For folks who are unaware of the happenings in the C++ world, C++ previously used to follow the standards set up in 1998. Afterwards, C++ was modified with minor changes, most famous of them known as the TR1 (Technical Report 1), which has now been incorporated into the standards.

C++11 was a major milestone in the C++ world, with a host of features. This set a baseline for further modern versions of C++ to follow.

C++14 will be introducing a lot of minor changes to the C++11 standard, and then the C++17 milestone will be a major one.

A post regarding some modern C++ features will be up soon.
