C++ Links #6

Welcome to new C++ Links - most important and useful articles, podcasts and videos that happen between 6th and 12th of October.

Today you will find a link to Core Guidelines rules about Concepts, a long article about C++17 class template deduction and a video that shows how inline keyword is taken into account by the compiler.
At the end, you will also find a bonus!

  1. New post from Rainer Grimm, after last introduction to metaprogramming, today he writes about the most desirable C++20 feature - Concepts. C++ Core Guidelines already have rules about Concepts and Rainer describes a few of them in the article. Remember that current C++ Standard working draft already contains Concepts!
