    Siddhartha Rao is a technologist at SAP AG, the world’s leading supplier of enterprise software. As the head of SAP Product Security India, his primary responsibilities include hiring expert talent in the area of product security as well as defining development best practices that keeps SAP software globally competitive. Awarded Most Valuable Professional by Microsoft for Visual Studio–Visual C++, he is convinced that C++11 will help you program faster, simpler, and more efficient C++ applications.

    Siddhartha also loves traveling and discovering new cultures given an opportunity to. For instance, parts of this book have been composed facing the Atlantic Ocean at a quaint village called Plogoff in Brittany, France—one of the four countries this book was authored in. He looks forward to your feedback on this global effort!
