Hi, my name is Alex Korban. I created this web site and wrote the C++11 Rocks book because I’m excited about C++11 and want to promote the use of modern C++. I found that there were no books which focused specifically on C++11, and I wrote C++11 Rocks book as a result. I offer both Visual Studio and GCC specific editions of the book.

I’ve been crafting software for over 12 years, and I’ve been advocating the use of modern C++, STL and Boost for a long time. I have worked for a range of companies, from web startups to a US multinational, and on a variety of C++ projects including a flight simulator, geospatial applications, computer controlled bulldozer blades, and even software driven kerb laying machines (these 4 metre tall beasts are very cool to see in action!).
