I have been learning and using C++ for over a decade now. I am self-taught, using books and online content as primary source for my learning. As an active member and moderator of a German C++ forum and later as contributor on StackOverflow, I have used the "learning by teaching" approach to continue to learn and deepen my understanding of the language for several years. Since 2015 I write a weekly blog about C++ and Clean Code (no, they do not contradict each other!).
