The second meeting in a series. We'll be discussing topics from Scott Meyers' new book, "Effective Modern C++". Jon Kalb of the Association of C/C++ Users (ACCU) will present, followed by open discussion.

This time, our topic is Chapter 5 (items 23-30): "Rvalue References, Move Semantics, and Perfect Forwarding," which Meyers has called the marquee feature of C++11. Move semantics facilitate exception-safe coding, increase code clarity, and can enable dramatic increases in performance. Perfect forwarding makes it much easier to create certain kinds of libraries. Rvalue references enable both features.
