About the Book
My book C++20 is both: a tutorial and reference to the C++20 standard. It teaches you C++20 and provides you with the details of this new thrilling C++ standard. The thrilling factor is mainly due to the big four of C++20.
- Concepts change the way we think and program templates. They are semantic categories for the template parameters. They enable you to express your intention directly in the type system. If something goes wrong, you get a clear error message.
- The new ranges library enables it to perform algorithms directly on the container, compose the algorithm with the pipe symbol, and apply them onto infinite data streams.
- Thanks to coroutines asynchronous programming in C++ becomes mainstream. Coroutines are the base for cooperative tasks, event loops, infinite data streams, or pipelines.
- Modules overcome the restrictions of header files. They promise a lot. For example, the separation of header and source files becomes as obsolete as the preprocessor. In the end, we have faster built time and an easier way to build packages.
About the Author
I've worked as a software architect, team lead, and instructor since 1999. In 2002, I created a further education round at my company. I have given training courses since 2002. My first tutorials were about proprietary management software, but soon after, I began teaching Python and C++. In my spare time, I like to write articles about C++, Python, and Haskell. I also like to speak at conferences. I publish weekly on my English blog https://www.modernescpp.com and the https://www.grimm-jaud.de/index.php/blog, hosted by Heise Developer.
Since 2016, I have been an independent instructor giving seminars about modern C++ and Python. I have published several books in various languages about modern C++ and in particular, concurrency. Due to my profession, I always search for the best way to teach modern C++.
My books "C++ 11 für Programmierer ", "C++" and "C++ Standardbibliothek kurz & gut" for the "kurz & gut" series were published by Pearson and O'Reilly. They are available in German, English, Korean, and Persian. In summer 2018 I published a new book on Leanpub: "Concurrency with Modern C++". This book is also available in German: "Modernes C++: Concurrency meistern".
