The C++ Language and the Standard Library both changed dramatically with the release of C++ 11. Some of these features were not implemented until the Visual Studio 2013 Preview, and those are presented in this course.
The C++ Language and the Standard Library both changed dramatically with the release of C++ 11. Some of these features were implemented in Visual Studio even before C++ 11 achieved final approval. Others were added in later versions. This course covers the features added in the Visual Studio 2013 Preview: simpler ways of constructing objects, raw string literals, explicit conversion operators, and of course variadic templates. Both using and writing variadic templates will be shown, with plenty of demos. There's even room for one C++ 14 feature!
