Dependency Injection - a 25-dollar term for a 5-cent concept

Over the years the term - Dependency Injection (DI) - has become more and more mystical while in actual fact DI is as simple as ABC. For those of you who have ever used constructors, you have inadvertently been using DI!

In this practical session, we will follow success stories of applying different forms of DI in several projects and focus on the outcomes as well as the potential pros and cons of using it.

We will establish why in an environment with constantly changing requirements [1] DI may play a crucial role if it comes to writing a maintainable/testable code with limited boilerplate and why "The only way to go fast is to go well".

The key point will be about comparing different ways [2], approaches [3] and frameworks [4] of accomplishing DI, each of which has different trade-offs, characteristics and which suits different applications.

At the end of this session, the audience will walk away with a clear understanding of possible use cases for DI, its benefits, as well as guidelines on how to correctly apply it.

Get ready to "inject all the things" at C++Now 2019!
