Course objectives
At the end of the course the students should be able to: use the C++ language (in the newest standard) on an advanced level; use various programming techniques, notably generic, functional and parallel programming; understand the principles of memory and resource management in C++; debug, test and profile C++ programs using appropriate tools; be able to use modern C++ idioms and design patterns.
  • Introduction to the ISO C++14 standard
  • Debugging and testing
  • Functional programming in C++, lambda functions, algorithms
  • Move semantics: rvalue references, forwarding
  • Resource management, smart pointers, the RAII idiom
  • Profiling and optimizations
  • Generic programming and meta-programming using templates (variadic templates, SFINAE, ...)
  • Modern C++ idioms (CRTP, tags)
  • Parallel programming in modern C++: threads, atomic, introduction to lock-free data structures
  • Future of C++ (C++17, proposed concepts)
  • MEYERS, Scott. Effective modern C++. First edition. Beijing: O'Reilly, 2014, xv, 315. ISBN 9781491903995. info

Assessment methods
Two programming homeworks, one group project in the second half of the semester (groups of up to three students), project presentation, final written exam.
Language of instruction
Further comments (probably available only in Czech)
