Boost your Productivity with Modern C++

The founder of the C++ user group in Dresden – Dr. Peter Gottschling – is organizing a C++ training in Leipzig. Since we are all into C++, we spread the word:

Boost your Productivity with Modern C++

Do you develop your developers?

Only when the last programmer is gone to Silicon Valley, we will realize that
the digital progress won’t wait for us.

Google, Facebook, Amazon are clear examples showing that the growth of the IT
market is passing by Germany. Over here, the formation of IT experts is
systematically neglected. The industryis held back by the shortage of skilled
programmers. Though we cannot create new developers for you, we can lift YOUR
developers to the next level.

Yet in times of Big Data and Industry 4.0 the popularity of C++ remains
unaffected, especially for operating systems, compilers and embedded systems.
The revolutionary improvements in C++11 and C++14 brought the language further
into the center of attention. For C++17, we are expecting even more spectacular

Our practical training is based on the exclusive material from our tutor’s yet
unpublished book on this powerful language.

The training is not a dull walk through all features of C++ but an inspiration
how they can be applied with maximal efficacy. The programming language offers a
wide variety of possibilities to create your own abstractions – up to building
your own embedded domain-specific language. Thereby, C++ is the only programming
language allowing for such powerful abstractions while gaining maximal
performance. Good C++ programming decreases the risk of errors and increases the
programs’ robustness. In addition, your programs will be even clearer, easier,
and more attractive to your co-workers – thus, more readable and maintainable.

Interactive exercises with practical relevance combine theory with your everyday
business. We offer an intensive training in small groups with up to 10
participants in German or English. It is designed for software developers who
want to develop high quality programs characterized by intuitive interfaces and
maximum performance. At the end of the training, a certificate for each
participants will be issued.


Dr. Peter Gottschling is the author of the Matrix Template Library 4, co-author

of Boost Graph Library as well as various other libraries. He was Head of the
German delegation to the ISO Committee for the standardization of C++ and is
Vice Chairman of the DIN Committee for programming languages. He has taught C++
at the Technische Universität Dresden, Technische Universität Berlin and Indiana
University. Today, he is the CEO of SimuNova while working on his book
“Discovering Modern C++” that will be released later this year.
