Embracing Modern C++ Safely (Addison-Wesley)
Wednesday, 12 January 2022

This book describes how to make effective use of the new and enhanced language features of modern C++ without falling victim to their potential pitfalls. Based on their years of experience with large, mission-critical projects, Dr. John Lakos and his co-authors divide C++11/14 language features into three categories: Safe, Conditionally Safe, and Unsafe.

<ASIN:‎0137380356>

This book distills the C++ community's years of experience applying C++11 and C++14 features and will help you make effective and safe design decisions that reflect real-world, economic engineering tradeoffs in large-scale, diverse software development environments. The authors use examples derived from real code bases to illustrate every finding objectively and to illuminate key issues. Each feature identifies the sound use cases, hidden pitfalls, and shortcomings of that language feature.
