Thought you knew C++? Think again! The C++11 standard is a huge leap forward in the language and STL. Largely inspired by Boost, the C++11 standard introduces support for lambdas, multithreading, vastly improved object construction mechanisms, and much more beside. This course takes a deep and detailed look at all the new features on offer in C++11, along with the incremental additional changes in C++14.


  • Working with C++11 smart pointers
  • Functional programming in C++11
  • Defining and using lambda expressions
  • Using C++11 container classes
  • Implementing code applications in C++11
  • Using miscellaneous C++ language features
  • What's new in C++14


Designers and developers who are using, considering using, or wish to know about the expanded capabilities of C++11 and C++14 will find this course useful.


Attendees should be experienced with C++ and comfortable with its primary features (e.g., classes, templates, inheritance, STL, etc.). Familiarity with threading concepts (e.g., threads and mutexes) is helpful, but is not essential.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. Its a cost effective option. One on one training can be delivered too, at reasonable rates.

Submit an enquiry from any page on this site, and let us know you are interested in the requirements box, or simply mention it when we contact you.
