Introduction to the Boost C++ Libraries
An introductory course on the Boost C++ libraries.
What you'll learn
This course gives an overview of Boost: a set of C++ libraries designed to cover some of the functionality that's missing from the STL. This course covers the libraries that are used for storing optional values (Boost.Optional), reading program options (Boost.ProgramOptions), storing any type of value in a generic container (Boost.Any), implementing the signal/slot paradigm (a.k.a Observer pattern) (Boost.Signals2), working with the local file system (Boost.Filesystem), and also covers an assortment of smaller libraries including Boost string algorithms, Boost.Bimap, and Boost.Units.
