We will start with a "simple" problem, and put ourselves in a situation where only C++98 is available to us, with no other library that the C++ standard library. We will solve that problem with the tools at hand, and (hopefully) be satisfied with what we did in that context.

We will then fast-forward to C++11, and revisit the same problem, solving it better with the tools at hand. We will do the same again with C++14, then with C++17, and finally with C++20. At each step, we will examine the ways in which the language makes our solution better, more efficient, simpler.

This will lead us to reflect on what C++ is becoming, and where it is leading us. And hopefully, this will make us smile!
