Moving Beyond “std::cout”

August 13 from 6pm to 8:30pm

The typical “Hello World” example we see in C++ is

include < iostream >

using namespace std; int main() { cout << “Hello World” << endl; }

Which just leaves the student with questions about namespaces, cout and endl! What are these constructs for? What do they mean? What do they DO? Are there alternatives that give us cleaner, more flexible code? At what cost? Can this even change how we teach C++? We’ll discuss some alternatives and the impact they have on our code, and possibly reconsider what our new defaults should be.

Jason Turner has 2 decades of C++ experience and is a regular conference speaker, developer, and trainer. He is host of the YouTube channel C++ Weekly and co-host of CppCast, the first podcast for C++ developers.
