Some thoughts on where C++ stands right now as a language and communtiy.
An overview on the first year of organizing online job fairs for the C++ community.
This week I wrote down some example code to play a bit around with how one can detect change in an object in C++ during runtime.
I attended this weeks virtual CppCon partially, as I'm also very busy with my upcoming conferences: Meeting Embedded & Meeting C++ 2021. Still I had a lot of fun. Thanks to Jon Kalb, the volunteers, speakers and all the attendees who made CppCon 2021 possible!
In September Meeting C++ online organized an online C++ Job fair, in this blog post I'm going to write about some of the lessons learned and a few new insights from the attendee data.
If you work with C++ you'll sooner or later will have to deal with undefined behavior. I stumbled upon an easy example to help folks understand the scope of undefined behavoir.
On May 25th & 26th Meeting C++ had organized the 2nd online C++ job fair in 2021.
Last week a new boost version was released. Unlike the last version, 1.77 contains again two new and interesting libraries: Describe and Lambda2, which both are based on C++14.
Last week the results of the ISOCPP 2021 survey were released. You can read abou the whole survey and its results on isocpp.org.
When I researched the library and language features of C++20 for the Meeting C++ Community survey, this one catched my eye.
In January Bryce Adelstein Lelbach gave a talk about NDVIDIAS CUDASTL fork at my online C++ User Group. Shortly after this talk was published on YouTube I got contacted by a start up, seeking feedback on their ideas of accelerating C++ with help of GPUs and AI.
At the start of 2020 Meeting C++ launched a continuous survey for the C++ community. In this post I will look at some of the results of the first year of running this survey.
So as I was writing my code for my current project, I had this function where a bunch of ifs queried certain properties to decide what version of the code should apply to the element handed to that function.
At the beginning of October JeanHeyd Meneide (aka ThePHD) published a video about his negative experiences in the C++ community and some general data on diversity in tech. As I said on a recent CppCast, I'd like to offer my own thoughts on these issues.
A few weeks ago I wrote about some code I was refactoring from single to multiple purpose. This is the second part looking at how to utilize C++17 for this.
Here is my virtual trip report about attending CppCon 2020 in remo. Thanks to all volunteers, speakers and attendees of this years virtual edition for making this event possible.
For the second time this year I'm refactoring a program from a single purpose to have two or more modes of operation. Both times the start and end result is similar, just the processing is different. A classic case of using polymorphism.
