Two weeks ago, I had a pleasure to give a talk at our local C++ User Group in Cracow. This time I spoke about vocabulary types from C++17: std::optional, std::variant and std::any.
The Talk During the presentation, I tried to explain the motivation and some most crucial use cases for the new types that we got in C++17.
In September our local C++ User Group started a “new year” of meetings after a little break in August. I had a pleasure to give a talk about string operations in C++17.
Here are the slides and additional comments.
The Talk For my book I wrote a lot of content about string_view, std::searcher and std::to_chars, std::from_chars and I wanted to make a short summary of those features.
How do you see the new C++ standard? Is it ok? Great? Meh?
Last week, after a few years of break, I presented my new talk that addressed the above question! It happened at the Cracow C++ Local Group.
Have a look what’s inside this talk.
Intro Listing all of the features from the new standard might sound simple at first glance.
Recently ended DConf 2014 conference was, as usually, a great event filled with interesting topics about the D language. I still need to update my little knowledge about the language and see more presentations, but one keynote especially drew my attention. This was a talk from Scott Meyers called The Last Thing D Needs.
Just a quick summary of a great presentation from Build 2014 called Native Code Performance on Modern CPUs: A Changing Landscape.
The presenter Eric Brumer (from Visual C++ Compiler Team) talked, in quite unique way, about deep down details of code optimizations. Why it is better to use compiler to do the hard work.
