More Information about my Mentoring Program “Fundamentals for C++ Professionals”
One month ago, I presented “My Mentoring Program “Fundamentals for C++ Professionals“. I’m overwhelmed by how my people want to participate in this first iteration of my mentoring program. What should I say? Today, I want to give you more details.
Here is only a short reminder about my program. For more details, read my previous article, “My Mentoring Program “Fundamentals for C++ Professionals“. Additionally, my new mentoring program is hosted here: https://www.modernescpp.org/. The page and the course https://www.modernescpp.org/courses/fundamentals-for-c-professionals/ are still under construction, but you get a concrete idea of the 28 steps to master C++.
For completeness, here are the 28 steps:
- Types: enumerations, pointer, references, and casts
- Types: type deduction with
- Values: initialization, conversion,
- Values: move semantics and perfect forwarding
- Classes: attributes and constructors
- Classes: initialization, destructors, and member functions
delete, operator overloading, explicit, access rights, friends, and structs
- Inheritance: abstract base classes, access rights, constructors, base class initializers
- Inheritance: destructor, virtuality,
final, and multiple inheritances
- Templates: functions and classes
- Templates: parameters and arguments
- Template Specialization
- Type Traits
- Smart Pointers
- STL: General Ideas (containers, algorithms, iterators, callables, range-based)
- STL: Common Interface of the Containers
- STL: sequential containers and associative containers
- STL: algorithms
- Strings including string views
- Regular Expressions
- In- and Output
- Threads: creation, data sharing, mutexes, and locks
- Threads: thread-local data, thread-safe initialization, condition variables
Today, I want to present you the 6th step. This 6th step is about move semantics, and perfect forwarding. This step exemplifies one typical week in my mentoring program.
6th Week: Move Semantics and Perfect Forwarding
The 6th week consists of five lessons:
Each lesson consist of a few tasks. Here are all lessons expanded.
Let’s have a closer look inside the first lesson:
It consists of the topics Details, two examples, one exercise, and further information.
The topic “Details” contains a video lecture and the slides used in this video lecture.
The topic “Example” contains a video lecture explaining the example, and the source code example.
The topic “Exercise” contains two video lectures. One explains the exercise, including the slides; one explains the solution of the exercise and the source code for the solution.
Further information provides you with additional information that is not required to master a lesson. This information includes typically more details on cppreference.com, highly valuable articles in the internet, posts on my blog Modernes C++, and often presentations from conferences about the specific topic. For example, here is the topic “Further Information” about the lesson “
delete" and also about the lesson “Copy versus Move Semantics”:
I end each week with a live Q&A session of about an hour or more if necessary. In the Q&A session, I answer all questions about the concrete week. I record the Q&A session and publish them later. Additionally, you can write me an e-mail at any time if you have a question.
Let me say a few words about the state of my mentoring program and a few technical details.
State of the Mentoring Program
So far, the videos that you saw in my previous screenshots are only placeholders. I will replace them with video lectures in the next two months and during the mentoring if necessary. Although I’m quite happy with the precious content I already have, I will add more “Further information” material in the following months and improve my mentoring page https://www.modernescpp.org/.
- Course start: My goal is to launch this course in April.
- Course size: At least 105 hours, 17.5 training days, or 3 1/2 typical 3-days training.
- Registration: I open the registration window four weeks before the course starts and close it one week before it starts.
- Stay informed: If you want to stay informed, write an e-mail to info@ModernesCpp.de with the subject “Mentoring”. Write me also an e-mail if you need more information.
- Price: Due to this first installment of my mentoring program(and some improvisation), the price of the program is drastically reduced by roughly 50%: about 250 €/month.
What are the next steps?
- Beginning of March: online information sessions about my mentoring program, where you can ask your specific questions
- Middle of March: my mentoring program opens for registration
- April: the registration for the mentoring program closes, and the mentoring program starts
