Spooky Action at a Distance by Victor Ciura
Date: 12. May 2022
I hate the term “Design Patterns”. It implies there are universally applicable solutions to some common code scenarios. Just codifying existing practice into some rules and blindly following them is a comfortable path, but not the optimal one. It turns out it’s not as easy as following recipes. Each situation and best associated solution is unique. However there is value in having uniform code structure throughout a project. So this topic is not to be discarded just yet, rather it needs more careful examination. In terms of inspectable properties of objects, what have we learned from years of OO influence from other languages and frameworks? How can we leverage these borrowed techniques in a value-oriented context? Does C++ benefit from special considerations? I think it’s time to revisit our old friend, the Observer pattern - from “theory” to practice. I’m not going to offer The Solution, rather we’re going to examine tradeoffs for several possible implementations, in various usage scenarios from a real project.
Improving Hiring in C++ by Jens Weller
Date: 21. April 2022
Many C++ employers have open positions and are activly looking for good developers. On the other side many C++ devs are happy with their current job and don't want to be contacted by recruiters or companies. Its not easy to reach the job searching developers within the C++ communtiy.
This talk is on how Meeting C++ aims at improving the hiring process in C++ for its community and the searching companies.
