For best practices i think Effective C++ is superior.

I'd like to have some one with better knowledge of C++ to point me in the right directly as far as decent C++ practices go.

I think it's a pretty good idea to read Scott Meyers's Effective C++.

It's easy to read, there are short and easily understandable tips which can help you improve your code.


In Topic: What skills is more important for a Junior programmer to master

I think people without working experience overestimate programmers in the industry.

That's so true. These days game companies need a lot more people and teams are orders of magnitude larger than in the old days. Only a small group of those will be true experts, but a lot of them can just be good. It has been my experience too that you can get a junior job these days without much expert experience. To give an example, none of my junior colleagues had even heard of template meta-programming tongue.png

 

Yeah, at my company maybe there is 1 more people + me (from ~100 people in the site) who know some metaprogrammings, people barely know any C++11/14...

And not just the juniors, even the seniors have just a basic knowledge.

 

I feel like being a senior is nothing related to how good you are, it's just related how much working experience you have... it's more about the numbers than about the knowledge and efficiency.

I think people without working experience overestimate programmers in the industry.

I am a C++ programmer and i think most programmer in the industry have just a really basic knowledge about the language (however, they ended up with alot of experience in different territories, which are really useful)

 

I think you shouldn't overthink this, just apply for a job, try yourself and you will see what you should improve. :)
At my country, with a stable basic knowledge about your territory you can easily get a junior job, the interviewers will know that you don't have much experience...

 

Also: If you can show something, like ANY free time project which is not a homework like stuff it's matter alot. It says alot about you if you do these kind of stuffs in your spare time. :)
