Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Intermediate/Advanced C++

Can someone suggest me some good resources to learn intermediate/advanced c++. I know most of the basic stuff but I would like to get better with it seeing as most of the coding I will be doing next year for school will be C++.


Also, does anyone know where I can find some good doc on the security libraries for c++? I'm starting my security concentration this year so I will probably be working with openSSL and libcrypto, but the doc I have found isn't the greatest out there..

    What have you learned? It's tough to say what's intermediate/advanced.

    Some random topics to google:

    Streams
    Exception Handling
    friend keyword
    templated functions
    templated classes
    inheritence
    STL data types

    Here's a reference site that you might find helpful: http://www.cppreference.com/index.html

    Edit: Also: http://www.cplusplus.com/ (this has tutorials)

    You can find libraries of cryptographic routines (Crypto++), but "security" doesn't come in a library. It's more about how you write your code. Secure Coding in C++ is a good book on the topic of designing C++ code for security. There's a fuckton of similar books.

    Effective C++ is probably a must-read.

    oh I understand that. I've seen "secure" stuff shot to shit because of the crappy coding practices done. I was more thinking along the lines on the libraries etc, like you mentions.
