I've been home sick with some never-ending flu for the last week. Adding cabin fever to the actual fever, I got a bit stir crazy and decided to look for some interesting "homework" to offer some mental gymnastics to take the edge off shuffling between the bed and the TV couch day in and day out.
So here's a curated list of links that kept me busy.
- Scott Meyers' talk on Going Native "An 'effective c++11/14' sampler" (quite entertaining too!)
- "C++ Rvalue References Explained" by Thomas Becker
- "Universal References in C++11" also by Scott Meyers (some overlap with the talk)
Anyway, the links were so good I decided I should share them with the world. They made a world of difference. I highly recommend them to anyone with the same general sense of bewilderment I used to have.
Sticking to c++, I've recently decided CxxTest to be my new favorite testing framework for the language. Its code generation based approach is by far the least painless way of implementing unit tests in the language I've encountered. This was before i got sick, but it makes the list anyway, as it's on my mental radar :-)
