Introduction to Boost

Recently I gave hands-on Introduction to Boost in C++ Meetup held in Pune. The session went pretty well with 20-25 folks attending it on a Saturday morning.

I covered three Boost libraries:

  1. Lexical Cast
  2. Optional
  3. Any

I had intentionally selected header-only libraries so that the audience could start coding along with me without having to build the Boost.

Here are the slides that I had prepared:

I have also uploaded the code generated during the live coding session:
