Today we have the pleasure to welcome Andreas Fertig to our user group. Andreas is an independent trainer and consultant for C++ specializing in embedded systems. It is because of his classes he developed cppinsights.io to make teaching C++ more visual. In the times Andreas is not working with C++ he creates macOS applications or enjoys his leasure time.

Abstract: With the help of C++ Insights we’ll dive into how things work in C++, through the eyes of the compiler.

For example we’ll look at some apparently simple cases like implicit conversions, and how in-class initializers work. We won’t stop there though! We’ll also walk through how the compiler generates lambdas and explore why you might care.

And of course this is C++ so it would be remiss of us not to also take a peek at one of our favourite C++ features: variadic templates!

Welcome to the compiler’s world with C++ Insights, and at the very least come away from the talk with a whole new way of looking at the code you write!
