For easy reference, this book is structured to align closely with the official C++ Core Guidelines website. Topics include:

  • Avoid "bikeshedding": stop wasting valuable time on trivia
  • Don't hurt yourself by writing code that will cause problems later
  • Know which legacy features to avoid and the modern features to use instead
  • Use newer features properly, to get their benefits without creating new problems
  • Default to higher-quality code that's statically type-safe, leak resistant, and easier to evolve
  • Use the Core Guidelines with any modern C++ version: C++20, C++17, C++14, or C++11
