At CppCon 2015 I decided to give a small lightning talk on how to present code in the coming year. This was a reflection on visiting many C++ related conferences and seeing many talks live and online:

I submitted a talk to CppCon with Modern C++ in the title: CppCon 2016 - Jens Weller “Writing applications in modern C++ and Qt". It seemed a good title, and I think it still is. Yet it made me interested in the term "modern C++", as its used so often. And I have heard so many things what it is, and what it isn't.

Welcome to the 3rd and last part about current proposals for C++17 and beyond. In the last part, there was an overview on the current Technical Specifications, most likely to move into C++ after C++17. The full proposal listing of 2016 sorted by subgroups contains many more proposals then I can cover.

Part 2 of my series about the current proposals for C++17. This part is covering the Technical Specifications (TS), which are currently released. Some of them will make it into C++17. Those not making it into C++17, should be available in the namespace std::experimental, if they are not a language feature.

Last night, I've been coding until 3 am. Working on an API which will connect my CMS to JSON libraries in a generic way. For this I did study different JSON Libraries in the past weeks. I almost wrote another one ;) Yet, I had the idea to write a generic interface to interface with some of these libraries, so that my own code is not hard wired to a certain API.

My CMS project has grown quite a bit, and there are a few places where I think I should refactor the code. One of the larger ones is that TreeItem::get<T> returns a pointer instead of a reference. Another one is related to how the Qt UI application is acting when opening a new panel in the TabControl. There used to be a noticeable delay...

The next big milestone for my CMS is to actually generate HTML files, and I'm almost there. I'll reach it in the next two weeks, most code is written, just a little bit of refactoring is needed. This blog post is about searching and replacing in strings. As I started last week with implementing the functionality, that turns the data in my CMS into an HTML website.

Part of my new year resolution was to do weekly backups. Back in 2013 I already had written a small application, which writes several directories in one zip archive. I continued the work on this in the last days.
