SD Best Practices Day One

Sign in to follow this  


Today was Tutorial day at the SD Best Practices conference (not a GDNet event). I attended an all-day session held by Dan Saks and Stephen Dewhurst called "Sooner Rather than Later: Static Coding Techniques for C++".

The major topics covered involved how to use templates, explicit partialization, and partial specialization to make C++ code more secure so that errors are found at compile-time instead of run-time. A lot of the discussion revolved around ideas discussed in the book Modern C++ Design by Andrei Alexandrescu and focuses on more examples of how to use generic programming to solve problems and tighten code.

In the near future I may post a few things I learned or had "aha!" moments about. As for now, I'm tired and need to get ready for tomorrow.
