comment Is a senior programmers advice about always using books a good idea?
It sounds like the senior might know why he is following these particular ways of solving problems - but maybe doesn't want to take the time to explain why to you, and is just pointing you to the resources that do explain it. Have you read the resources he has directed you to? Do they explain why the solution chosen was picked?

comment How to choose a code style for C++
Coding style is probably one of THE most opinion-based topics in programming, and C++ adds a notch or ten. I'm with @ratchetfreak - the only definitive statement you can make is "be consistent".

comment C++ control reaches end of non-void function
@Cyanfish - if you have access to C++11 you should be returning nullptr which has better type safety. Actually in this particular case you might even want to return a std::unique_ptr that potentially contains a nullptr, depending on the ownership situation of the return value.

comment Is this a valid example of a dangling pointer?
The example code given declares a regular float variable as well but it is not used - are you certain you've copied the example correctly?
