CSCS organized September 26-28 a three days workshop on "Advanced C++ for HPC". The aim of this course was to provide the fundamental tools for effective C++ programming in the context of high-performance computing. The tools include generic programming techniques, API development, specific C++-11/14 constructs. Starting from a basic knowledge of C++, the attendee will be able to start using C++ language to engineer durable abstractions to develop and optimize applications.
