  • Looking for well written, modern C++ (17/20) example projects for microcontrollers

    Rather than looking at good examples (which you should by all means do), add cppreference.com to you bookmarks and use it as your reference. By far the best C++ reference on the net. (from a C programmer who was thrown into C++ a decade ago -- slowly digesting C++20 now) Both StackOverflow.com and electronic.stackexchange.com are two additional QA sites that can help.

    Sadly, not much. My method of learning is to get my hands dirty and waste a lot of time doing things wrong before I do them right. The only resource (outside of Google and StackOverflow) that I always had open was https://en.cppreference.com

    I'd be careful about such re-formulations of the Standard. When I was adding printf format checking to the D compiler, I discovered there were subtle discrepancies in the description of exactly how printf behaves. I went back to using the Standard.

    Current C++ standard draft it hosted at https://eel.is/c++draft/, at this time this is the draft for C++23.

    For earlier C++ standard versions the final drafts before ISO standardization are hosted at https://github.com/timsong-cpp/cppwp . The paid ISO standardized version is supposedly not meaningfully different.

    Relevant parts of the standard:

    * pop_back: https://timsong-cpp.github.io/cppwp/n4868/containers#tab:con... "Preconditions: a.empty() is false."

    * Meaning of "precondition": https://timsong-cpp.github.io/cppwp/n4868/library#structure....

    Reading the standard can be quite a challenge. The standard tries to not repeat itself, which often means that you don't get your answer in a self-contained paragraph, but you have to hunt down cross-references and definitions.

    As a C++ language reference I highly recommend https://en.cppreference.com .

  • Ask HN: What are great resources to catch up C++?
    4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 16 Jan 2023
    Modern C++ code now looks very different to even C++11 code which is considered to be the start of modern C++.

    "A Tour of C++" which has already been recommended is probably a good start to get back in the game. I think there was a new version coming out, but not sure what the current status about this is.

    [https://en.cppreference.com](cppreference.com) is a good resource for me. It has documentation regarding the new standards as well and up to C++20 the examples are mostly complete, at least for the relevant things.

    I can also recommend watching the "Back to Basics" talks on the CppCon youtube channel and once you are more familiar also the regular talks. They are great resources about practical topics.

    Jason Turner's C++ Weekly videos are also a great resource. They are usually 10-15 minutes long videos that give you a good start to think about. Great way to learn something new every week.

  • I am stuck in tutorial hell

    I would start with a direction of where to apply C++. Updating legacy code, working on embedded systems, creating financial application and creating high performant games are a few common option. Also sites like cppreference and Compiler Explorer/Godbolt are your friends in learning. CPlusPlus.com might help with legacy support as it stops with C++11.

    Keep in mind that most YouTube C++ tutorials are garbage. Use www.learncpp.com instead as a tutorial, and https://en.cppreference.com as a language reference. Once you familiarize yourself with the language, you can learn the best practices using the C++ Core Guidelines.

    The important thing to remember is that a concept exist and roughly what it's called, so you can look it up when you need to. You don't need to keep all the details in your head, that's what we have en.cppreference.com for.

    cppreference[1] is fairly minimalist, usually up to date and clearly marks which feature came with which standard. It is generally useful for everyday c++ coding.
