Effective GoF Patterns with C++11 and Boost

By Tobias Darm

“With C++11 we broke all the guidelines, we broke all the idioms, we broke all the books” - Herb Sutter. Even the GoF-book is broken now too. Let us see how some of these patterns can be implemented with C++11 more effectively. And maybe you will be surprised with what happens to some of these patterns. We will have a look at some Boost libraries that already offer a generic implementation of some GoF-patterns and how their usage looks like.
