C++ Core Guidelines Explained: Best Practices for Modern C++

I give away five vouchers for my book “C++ Core Guidelines Explained: Best Practices for Modern C++”. In return, I have a question about modern C++. Which feature in C++11/14/17 is the most influential for you and why?


First, here is what you can expect from my book:

C++ expert instructor Rainer Grimm offers accessible, practical coverage of the Core Guidelines that offer the most value to students learning the C++ programming language. Offering new insights, indispensable context, and proven C++17 examples drawn from his courses and seminars, Grimm helps students get more value from the guidelines.

Grimm’s wide-ranging coverage addresses C++ programming philosophy, interfaces, functions, classes, class hierarchies, enumerations, resource management, expressions, statements, performance, concurrency, error handling, constants, immutability, templates, generic programming, C-style programming, source files, the Standard Library, and more. Each section links to the original standard online, and wherever appropriate, Grimm previews advances from C++20 and C++23. With Grimm’s Help, students can use the C++ Core Guidelines to write C++ code that’s more consistent, robust, and well-performing.

Second, what Bjarne Stroustrup and Herb Sutter say about my book:
