Bjarne Stroustrup (the inventor of c++) and Herb Sutter (ISO c++ committee [WG21] convenor) have produced a set of c++ core guidelines for using modern c++ 'well'. These guidelines are available at https://github.com/isocpp/CppCoreGui...eGuidelines.md

To compliment these, a Guideline Support Library (GSL) has been produced which provides additional c++ capabilities (such as span<>, not_null<> etc). These GSL utilities are available at https://github.com/Microsoft/GSL. Note that these are NOT Microsoft specific - but Herb Sutter works for Microsoft!

For MS VS, a c++ Core Guidelines checker is available. See https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/vis...lines-checkers
