The Goal and The Journey - Turning back on one year of C++14 Migration

C++14 has been announced as the next best thing since sliced bread in terms of simplicity, performance and overall elegance of c++ code. This talk is the story of why and how we decided to migrate one of our old 'modern C++' software library -- BSP++, a C++ implementation of the BSP parallel programming model -- to C++14.

More than just a recollection of 'use this' or 'do that' mottos, this talk will try to ponder on :

  • why one should consider migrating to C++14 now
  • which features actually helped and which one did not
  • the traps and pitfalls compilers tried to pull on us
  • the overall, quantitative increase of code quality through some actual code quality metric
