Proposal for the next C++ standards

Modern C++ refers to the evolution of the C++ programming language beyond its original design principles, incorporating newer features, idioms, and best practices that have emerged since the language’s inception.

C++ is standardized by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). C++ standards are typically released every few years, bringing new features and improvements to the language.

Average experience of active C++ development Poll

C++ has a steep learning curve compared to some other programming languages. Its syntax and concepts can be complex, especially for beginners or those transitioning from higher-level languages. C++ may not be as beginner-friendly as some other languages, it offers unparalleled power, flexibility, and opportunities for those willing to invest in learning and mastering its intricacies. 

The level of experience, particularly with active development spanning more than five years, often correlates with a deeper understanding of C++ and its capabilities. Developers who have been actively working with C++ for an extended period tend to have a comprehensive knowledge of the language’s features, nuances, and ecosystem, enabling them to leverage its power effectively in various applications.
