Should I pay attention to the warning that I’m std::move‘ing from a trivial type? Part 2--Raymond Ch

The series continue.

Should I pay attention to the warning that I’m std::move‘ing from a trivial type? Part 2

by Raymond Chen

From the article:

Last time, we looked at motivations for std::move‘ing from a trivial type. Our investigation looked at the problem through the eyes of the object moved from, but there’s another way to look at the problem, and that’s from the point of view of the object being moved to...

Diversity and Inclusion at CppCon 2022 -- Daisy Hollman

Diversity and Inclusion at CppCon 2022

by Daisy Hollman

From the article:

One of the fundamental missions of the Standard C++ Foundation is to “support the C++ software developer community.” Support starts with ensuring that everyone feels welcome in our community, and as the leadership of the largest community gathering of the year, we take the opportunity to build a more diverse and inclusive community very seriously and try to expand it every year. Here are the new, expanded, and continuing initiatives currently planned, aimed at making everyone feel welcome at CppCon 2022...

Writing a Network Client with POCO -- Richard Thomson

Utah C++ Programmers has released a new video:

Writing a Network Client with POCO

by Richard Thomson

From the video description:

Networking is often a core requirement for modern applications, but the standard C++ library doesn't yet include any networking support. The Boost libraries have had networking components in the ASIO library, but it looks complicated and filled with details. What if we aren't experts in networking but we need to have networking to support a feature in our application, what options are available to us?

POCO began as a library of POrtable COmponents, so it covers more than just networking. The networking portion of POCO includes:
- stream, datagram, multicast, server, Unix domain and raw sockets
- multithreaded TCP server framework
- reactor server framework
- HTTP(S) client and server framework
- HTTP Basic and Digest authentication
- NTLM authentication
- JSON Web Token support
- C++ server page compiler
- FTP client
- clients for the email protocols SMTP and POP3
- URI and UUID handling
- HTML forms processing
- HTML template compiler
- MIME multipart messages
- SSL/TLS support based on OpenSSL
- WebSocket client and server

This month, Richard Thomson will give us an introduction to POCO networking components centered around writing a network client to talk to an NNTP server. We'll look at the main abstractions provided by POCO and how those are used to build a network client to an NNTP server. NNTP (Network News Transfer Protocol) is a stateful network protocol for reading articles from newsgroups, generally referred to as "usenet". Unlike single hosted forums or mailing lists, usenet is a distributed system with no central authority, providing redundancy and resiliency from single point failures (like the host of your favorite forum suddenly deciding they don't want to pay server costs anymore and deleting the whole thing).

Dawn of a new C++ cycle--Jens Weller

What do you think?

Dawn of a new C++ cycle

by Jens Weller

From the article:

It was 10 years ago when one would realize that a new era for C++ was in its beginning: C++11 was a fundamental change. Many things that one wanted to have in the language or standard library suddenly became available, if one had the right compiler in the newest version. And in this time 10 years ago, the first C++now happend in Aspen, as it has again in the beginning of May...
