Fun with C++14 Lambdas at Silicon Valley Code Camp

Believe it or not, but the 9th Silicon Valley Code Camp is less than 2 weeks away and I can't wait to be at the largest software technology conference setup by developers for developers---and here is the best part---at no cost to the attendees. So far, there are 234 registered sessions, 7 technical tracks, and over 3100 registrations. So mark your calendar--it's October 11th and 12th, Saturday and Sunday, as always.

C++ is hot again at SVCC and third year in a row there is a dedicated track for modern C++. There are 11 sessions covering a wide variety of topics related to modern C++ programming.

I wanna thank SVCC organizers who generously allowed me to present two sessions: The first one is titled: Fun with Lambdas: C++14 Style[video]. You may be following the Fun with Lambdas series on this blog and hopefully having some fun too! I'll present a sampling of the content discussed here with new insights. Check out part 1, part 2, and part 3 if you haven't already. Come see how functional programming techniques are going to change the face of C++ programming beyond recognition.

The second sessions is about Reactive Programming with DDS and Rx[video]. It's about functional programming again but this time it's going to be C#. Reactive Extensions (Rx) is a fascinating new technique to compose asynchronous and event-based programs using observables and LINQ-style query operators. It fits extremely well with DDS--a data distribution technology for networked real-time systems. I'll demo commonly used Rx operators with real data coming off of a toy DDS example. More on that here.

All in all, I'm anticipating the SVCC'14 to be a pretty busy weekend once again with a lot of learning and sharing. If you are in the area and decide to attend, stop by and say hi!

An excellent work without doubt. People like you are serving the field of programming without any reward. I really appreciate your work. I have also done something for the students who are willing to learn C++ in Urdu . Keep it up.

@awais kamran: Thanks! C++ in Urdu looks pretty neat. Bahut hi acche tarike se apane samazaya hai C++ ko.

Multi-dimensional arrays in C++11

What new can be said about multi-dimensional arrays in C++? As it turns out, quite a bit! With the advent of C++11, we get new standard library class std::array. We also get new language features, such as template aliases and variadic templates. So I'll talk about interesting ways in which they come together.

It all started with a simple question of how to define a multi-dimensional std::array. It is a great example of deceptively simple things. Are the following the two arrays identical except that one is native and the other one is std::array?

int native[3][4];
std::array<std::array<int, 3>, 4> arr;

No! They are not. In fact, arr is more like an int[4][3]. Note the difference in the array subscripts. The native array is an array of 3 elements where every element is itself an array of 4 integers. 3 rows and 4 columns. If you want a std::array with the same layout, what you really need is:

std::array<std::array<int, 4>, 3> arr;

That's quite annoying for two r…

Covariance and Contravariance in C++ Standard Library

Covariance and Contravariance are concepts that come up often as you go deeper into generic programming. While designing a language that supports parametric polymorphism (e.g., templates in C++, generics in Java, C#), the language designer has a choice between Invariance, Covariance, and Contravariance when dealing with generic types. C++'s choice is "invariance". Let's look at an example.
struct Vehicle {}; struct Car : Vehicle {}; std::vector<Vehicle *> vehicles; std::vector<Car *> cars; vehicles = cars; // Does not compile The above program does not compile because C++ templates are invariant. Of course, each time a C++ template is instantiated, the compiler creates a brand new type that uniquely represents that instantiation. Any other type to the same template creates another unique type that has nothing to do with the earlier one. Any two unrelated user-defined types in C++ can't be assigned to each-other by default. You have to provide a c…

Want speed? Use constexpr meta-programming!

It's official: C++11 has two meta-programming languages embedded in it! One is based on templates and other one using constexpr. Templates have been extensively used for meta-programming in C++03. C++11 now gives you one more option of writing compile-time meta-programs using constexpr. The capabilities differ, however.

The meta-programming language that uses templates was discovered accidently and since then countless techniques have been developed. It is a pure functional language which allows you to manipulate compile-time integral literals and types but not floating point literals. Most people find the syntax of template meta-programming quite abominable because meta-functions must be implemented as structures and nested typedefs. Compile-time performance is also a pain point for this language feature.

The generalized constant expressions (constexpr for short) feature allows C++11 compiler to peek into the implementation of a function (even classes) and perform optimizations i…
