C/C++ Double Feature- "Modern C++ Memory Management" / "Lambdas are our friend!"

Join us at 7:00 on Wednesday, November 13th as David Cravey gives not one but two presentations on C++! Doors open at 6:30 so please arrive a bit ahead of time so we can be ready for both presentations.

I. C++ Pointers, Arrays, and References: Mastering one of the most misunderstood (and misused) aspects of the C++ Language.

Memory management is one of C++'s strengths, but even the most fundamental features are frequently misunderstood. We will cover the basics from C style memory management, all the way through C++11 memory management using smart pointers. Questions are definitely welcome! If time allows we will take a high level view of the mysterious R-Value References that power both Move Semantics and Perfect Forwarding.

II. Lambdas are our friend!

C++11 introduced Lambdas to the C++ language, and many compilers have provided support for several years (i.e. VC2010). Come learn why C++ Lambdas enable you to easily do things that were previously either difficult or practically impossible! (we will even take a peak at how C++14 promises to take Lambdas to the next level)

David Cravey is a Senior Architect for Clear Measure in Austin, TX. David has a love for software design, and a passion for sharing this love with the community. As a C++ enthusiast David has been awarded a Microsoft Visual C++ MVP for 3 years, and this year received the VC++ MVP of the year award.

    Unfortunately, I had to miss this because I was out of town. I would love to see the slides as well. Thanks.

    I haven't written anything in c/c++ in a long time. Thanks for having this.

    Hopefully I'll get off work in time to attend! I've always wanted to go to a little C++/programming hang out. :)

    Well *my* friends are the sort who if I asked, would let me do environment captures...and then cast to a raw function pointer anyway. (We cut our friends slack--that's what makes friendship special. So tell that to Lambda. :-P)

    Regardless, great to see the presentations running--and welcome David! By the by, if any experts would like to review some C++ weirdness I'm tinkering with right now...feedback sought: http://codereview.stackexchange.com/questions/33713/ )

    I would have loved to attend this (as this is of particular interest to me) but sorry I'll be out of town. I'm hoping the material will be shared afterwards.
