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.
Clazy is a Clang plugin which extends the compiler with over 50 warnings related to Qt best practices ranging from unneeded memory allocations to API misuse. It’s an opensource project spawned by KDAB’s R&D efforts for better C++ tooling.
In 2012 Meeting C++ got started in July. Planned first to be a one off conference, now it is a successfull international conference and a platform for C++ on the internet.
As this crisis unfolds, some word on how this impacts our own community, the C++ world.
Now where the year is a few weeks old, lets see whats ahead for C++ in 2020!
I've spend the past year often working with PHP instead of C++. And now its time to connect some of these systems with the C++ Backend that powers the conference it self.
A specific action causes one of my applications to crash. And so far I've just ignored it, as its not something that hinders daily use. But as I mostly get to work with code written by my self, no body else to blame or fix it. So yesterday I thought - ok - lets quickly fix this. After all I had the IDE already open...
... might not mix that well. And its an interesting language detail causing it.
So in March of this year I did play around with two libraries in Qt and boost, to test out some ideas. This post is about ideas and problems I'm currently thinking about.
So far I covered the basics for connecting boost fusion adapted structs with Qts Model/View architecture. Today is the next step: a simple dialog for editing a single instance of such a fusion enabled type.
Lets say you have a compile type defined type, like a tuple or a fusion sequence. And its easy to access, just call get<Index>(variable) and you get the reference to the types run time instance in the index. Easy. But for this you need to know which index to call at compile time. What if you get that index only at runtime? Like in the previously mentioned Model/View Interface of Qt?
