Choosing Between References and Pointers in C++
By Brian Overland
May 24, 2012
Pointers have always been among the favorite subjects of C and C++ programmers. The introduction of reference types to the C++ language raises a series of questions: How are references similar or different from pointers? How are they implemented? And how do they replace pointers altogether in the modern crop of languages: Java, C#, and VB.NET? Also, can you reduce pointer usage in C++? Brian Overland, author of C++ Without Fear: A Beginner's Guide That Makes You Feel Smart, 2nd Edition, explores all these points.

By Danny Kalev
Apr 10, 2012
Lambda expressions are compact function-like blocks of code that serve as predicates, initializers, and in event-driven apps. Lambdas rid you of the tedium of writing boilerplate code; you only have to code the actual functionality. In addition, they're efficient and secure. No wonder they're so popular in functional programming these days.

A Magic Spell: Using auto and decltype in C++11 to Declare Objects Without Spelling Out Their Types
By Danny Kalev
Mar 15, 2012
C++11 weaves its magic to help you eliminate keystrokes and simplify your code, safely transferring some of your workload to the compiler. With two new C++11 features, you can omit the type of an object from its declaration, and the compiler ingeniously deduces the missing type by examining the initializer used in the declaration. Danny Kalev reveals the secret behind the curtain.
