Mixpanel C++: "Generic Lambdas from Scratch"

This Meetup is past

24 people went


The fourth meeting in a series discussing topics from Scott Meyers' new book, Effective Modern C++ ( Our nominal topic remains Chapter 6 (items 31–34): "Lambda Expressions." The scheduling hiccup this month is due to the fact that Mixpanel just moved to a new office and we're still getting settled in.

At this meeting, Arthur O'Dwyer will present "C++14 Generic Lambdas from First Principles." We'll start with the implementation of C-style functions, then move to overloading, function templates, non-static member functions, C++11 lambdas, and then demystify C++14 generic ("auto") lambdas. Finally, we'll detour into the implementation of std::function and std::bind to show how they're different from lambdas.

Arthur O'Dwyer spent five years in the compiler group at Green Hills Software. He has presented at CppCon 2014 and Silicon Valley Code Camp. He currently works for Mixpanel in San Francisco.
