C++11/14 at Scale: What Have We Learned? - Vittorio Romeo - CppCon 2021

English --- Many years have passed since the release of C++11 and C++14. These standards brought many new features and idioms to the C++ language and revitalized its community.
Nowadays, with C++20 having one foot out the door, it is important to look back at the experience gained using C++11/14 at scale and re-evaluate their impact.
- What have we learned from 8 years of using Modern C++ in production at a large-scale corporation? - What features were the most useful? - Which ones were the most misused?
From unexpected benefits/drawbacks to teachability issues, this talk will discuss the most significant consequences of embracing C++11 and C++14 in a company with thousands of engineers. With some *healthy* skepticism, commonly used features and idioms will be reassessed to uncover some unexpected pitfalls or qualities.
