Introduction to C++ smart pointers

  • Nov 7, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Jason Rassi from MongoDB will give a talk, intended for C++ beginners, that gives an overview of the smart pointer pattern in C++, including how smart pointers work, what smart pointers are available in different standards and common libraries (e.g. C++98, TR1, boost, C++11), the semantics of those various smart pointers, and provide guidance on when and how to use the right smart pointer in your system design.

Please note that this is a beginner level talk. Attendees should have a basic understanding of C++ syntax and semantics and want to improve their understanding of this important and idiomatic design pattern.


About the speaker: Jason Rassi is a developer on the MongoDB core server team.

    Hi All -

    A few reminders about tonights talk:

    If you registered to attend but will not be able to be here, please cancel your RSVP. We don't currently have a waitlist, but especially since this is a beginner level talk, I'd like to make sure anyone interested in the material has an opportunity to attend.

    Also, the security desk in the lobby will need your name to be on the RSVP list in order to let you up to the meetup space, so you must RSVP if you plan on attending.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone this evening.

    Thanks,
    Andrew
