A lot of copy paste is still inside some of my projects, too. Well yes, I understand. Starting to understand C++ and then be confident requires years. And good code examples, and advice on that path are often priceless. Continue reading
If there is one important post this year, then I suggest Marry has already written it already. It is a strange feeling when one knows he is proven (more or less) right. After 10+ years of persistently and stubbornly clutching to one idea, or ideology or “beacon of light” … or whatever you want to insert in here.

Recently while having some discussions on a forum populated with very good C++ developers, I started to realize…
Many of them do not see the reality same as I do? Most of the discussions are blossoming simply because of reality checks that developers fail to do. Especially if they are in this IT industry where constant change is the name of the game.
A simple example: STL. Did discussion explode around the issue of using or not using the STL in the code? Yes. A drastic example of a reality check missing. Here is why:
- STL does not exist any more. At least two years.
- STL is replaced with stdlib : standard library for C++
- Standard C++ has stdlib at its core. It is based on stdlib.
Three points from the reality of C++ today. Have you done your C++ reality check, yet :)?
