Working with Dynamic Memory in C++
By Stanley B. Lippman, Josée LaJoie, Barbara E. Moo
Sep 13, 2012
C++ lets you allocate objects dynamically. The authors of C++ Primer discuss why properly freeing dynamic memory is a rich source of bugs, and how the new library defines smart pointers—shared_ptr, unique_ptr, and weak_ptr—that make managing dynamic memory much safer.
Move Semantics in C++11, Part 2: Design and Implementation of Special Move Functions
By Danny Kalev
Jul 9, 2012
Move semantics in C++11 can improve your code's performance dramatically. Danny Kalev concludes this series with a close look at the design and implementation of move-enabled code.

Move Semantics in C++11, Part 1: A New Way of Thinking About Objects
By Danny Kalev
Jul 2, 2012
Not every resource transfer is a copy operation. In many programming tasks, the resource only moves from one object to another, emptying the source object in the process. The semantics and formal properties of these 'move semantics' are a new C++11 paradigm to make code more efficient and simulate real-world situations more accurately, as Danny Kalev explains in this two-part series.
