Pre-conference Training: What’s new in C++11/C++14? (with a Qt5 focus)
Target Audience: C++ developers who want to upgrade their C++ skills
Prerequisite: Knowing the basics of C++ (the old standard) is a requirement, though more advanced topics will be explained as needed. Knowing the basics of Qt is beneficial, but not required.
This training is targeted at people who are interested to combine the new features of C++11/C++14 with Qt5 (and, to a lesser extent, Qt 4.8). It will teach you all about the new C++11/C++14 features, but also throws in Qt-specific information, including how to structure your code so that a simple recompile with a C++14 compiler will make your applications both faster and use less memory.
