|additional remarks||C++ is a modern programming language, with a focus on high performance. It is widely being used in very different contexts and has excellent support in both tools and libraries. Even though the language is quite old with its roots going back to the 1980s, the language received a huge overhaul in 2011 with C++11, lifting it into the 21st century. Since then, the language has been refined and advanced in a regular three-year cadence, with C++14, C++17 and this year's C++20. In this seminar, we will focus on getting up-to-date on modern C++ programming techniques, up to and including C++20. Excursions into future proposals for C++23 and beyond are also welcome. Each student will focus on a particular topic (such as concepts, ranges, expression templates), and prepare a teaching unit of 30 minutes, consisting of a presentation introducing the topic as well as live exercises, in which all the other participants will take part to practice actual applications of the topic. Active involvement of the audience (the other course participants) is very much encouraged. Finally, a written report on the topic will serve as future reference for the participants of the course. The seminar will take place in weekly sessions on Wednesday from 14-16 during the summer term 2020. Attendance in most of the sessions is mandatory.|
