I spent most of the last weekend studying and a bit sick.
When not reading for the Uni I binge watched a lot of talks from previous editions of the CppCon, because that’s obviously what only a sick person would do.
And after not being on that scene for quite a while I found that, like for some wines, the time made it nicer.
The use of auto variables when iterating containers, lambdas, parallelization and inclusion of atomic operations (albeit I believe they are insufficiently documented and will bite a lot of people) are just some of the things that surprised me in a good way. There’s a host of cool stuff under <algorithm> and the new optimizations (like the ones carried for constexpr ) are incredible.
Coincidentally, Bert Hubert started a series of posts with the good parts of C++ that actually makes me want to code something in it again.
