Modern generic programming using the Tick and Fit libraries

C++ templates provide a very powerful abstraction for generic programming. Even so, they still suffer from long and confusing compile errors and this puts an extra burden of complexity on library writers who want to provide flexibility in their interfaces. In this talk, we will first discuss the importance of concept-based type requirements in code in order to produce clear compile errors, and how the Tick library can be used to specify and check those type requirements.

Later, we will discuss how the Fit library can further enhance generic programming. The Fit library provides many abstractions over functions including a way to do sophisticated overloading in a simple and concise manner. We will discuss in this talk how we can leverage these abstractions with overloading to provide simple and flexible interfaces. We will also look at comparison of these solutions with the Concepts Lite proposal and Boost.ConceptCheck.
