Coming to grips with C++11 and C++14 is more than a matter of familiarizing yourself with the features they introduce (e.g., auto type declarations, move semantics, lambda expressions, and concurrency support). The challenge is learning to use those features effectively--so that your software is correct, efficient, maintainable, and portable. That's where this practical book comes in. It describes how to write truly great software using C++11 and C++14--i.e. using modern C++.

Topics include:

  • The pros and cons of braced initialization, noexcept specifications, perfect forwarding, and smart pointer make functions
  • The relationships among std:: move, std:: forward, rvalue references, and universal references
  • Techniques for writing clear, correct, effective lambda expressions
  • How std:: atomic differs from volatile, how each should be used, and how they relate to C++'s concurrency API
  • How best practices in "old" C++ programming (i.e., C++98) require revision for software development in modern C++

Effective Modern C++ follows the proven guideline-based, example-driven format of Scott Meyers' earlier books, but covers entirely new material.

"After I learned the C++ basics, I then learned how to use C++ in production code from Meyer's series of Effective C++ books. Effective Modern C++ is the most important how-to book for advice on key guidelines, styles, and idioms to use modern C++ effectively and well. Don't own it yet? Buy this one. Now".

As one student recently stated:  "C++ has become a scripting language very similar to Python".  I could not agree more.  This is the reason you need to purchase this book. 

Scott is exceptionally effective at distilling the pertinent information to help avoid the landmines of this already difficult language whose modern version is all the more difficult to comprehend. 

Just ask those individuals who have years of C experience to evaluate their grasp of C++.  Sure they know how to handle pointers but what about building datatypes and casting.  Add to that a syntax that is an amalgam of procedural, object oriented and scripting.  Let the fun begin.

You should consider Bjarne Stroustrup's C++ book as well.
