This short talk presents how easy it is to replace some cases of dynamic polymorphism with std::variant. During the lecture, we will analyze and compare 2 implementations of the same simple Finite State Machine. It turns up that variant-based code is not only much faster but also it gives us the opportunity to define our interfaces and program flow much better. The talk will end up with the discussion of pros and cons of each approach and will try to give guidelines on when to use them.
