Scott Meyers Training Courses

What's New in Effective C++?

Scott Meyers' Effective C++ has defined good programming in C++ since it first came out in 1991, but since the second edition in 1998, C++ has changed, the people using it have changed, and accepted best practices have changed, too. This seminar — based on new information in the 2005 third edition of the book — summarizes the most important advice for experienced C++ developers. There is no better way to bring C++ programmers up to date on cutting edge considerations, technologies, and practices than this seminar, chock-full of Meyers' signature insights, explanations, and examples.
