constexpr ALL the things!

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
constexpr: in C++11, a curiosity; in C++14, viable for more uses; now with added power, in C++17 will it become an important tool in the programmer’s toolkit?

In this talk we will examine the possibilities and power of constexpr and explore what can (and what should) be done at compile-time with C++17. We’ll present techniques for building constexpr data structures and algorithms, and for effectively meshing compile-time and runtime computation with constexpr API constructs. We’ll also consider the opportunities for judicious use of user defined literals for expressive compile-time abstractions.

Compile-time computation offers perhaps the ultimate zero-cost abstraction, and this talk attempts to answer the question of how C++17 delivers on the promise.
