Type Deduction and Why You Care | CppCon 2014

http://www.cppcon.org—Presentation Slides, PDFs, Source Code and other presenter materials are available at:https://github.com/CppCon/CppCon2014--C++98 had template type deduction, and it worked so intuitively, there was little need to understand what took place under the covers. C++11 extends type deduction to include universal references, applies it to auto variables and lambda expressions, then throws in a special auto-only deduction rule. C++14 pushes the boundary further, adding two forms of function return type deduction (auto and decltype(auto)) for arbitrary functions and offering auto parameters for lambdas. The result is that what could be treated as a black box in C++98 has become a topic that practicing C++ developers really need to understand. This talk will give you the information you need to do that.--Scott Meyers has been working with C++ since 1988. He recently finished his new book, "Effective Modern C++".--Videos Filmed & Edited by Bash Films: http://www.BashFilms.com

TWC | Hacker’s Perspective on Your Windows Infrastructure: Mandatory Check List | TechEd Europe 2014

If there is a weakness in your IT security system, wouldn't it be better to find it before someone else does? The worst thing is that even a small scale security breach could leave your business in poor condition and in the end information security is not an IT department's problem, it is a business issue! As long as we are aware of the value of the resources to be protected, why don't we put ourselves into the hacker's role and perform all the activities they would do as well? Of course, it requires some very specific knowledge that may be hard to learn when our work focuses more on creating than destroying, but the results will give us a perspective on what other people with bad intentions can see. Sometimes it is really surprising how often you can use the same paths to enter the system! During this intensive session, become familiar with the mandatory tasks that are performed by hackers or penetration testers in order to check for misconfigurations and vulnerabilities. Come and join Paula in the journey to the darker side of IT security and use this knowledge for making good decisions in your system. Do not forget to keep the mandatory security check list in your pocket!
