Web | C++
by Lukas Bergdoll
(watch on YouTube) (watch on Channel 9)
Summary of the talk:
Have you ever tried writing a web application with C++? Can opening a file and serving it via HTTP be as simple as writing 20 lines of python? With the undeniable importance of web development, C++ can not allow itself to ignore such an important field, especially with the rising competition in the field of system programming languages, coming from Rust, D and Go.
Join us as we explore modern approaches to asynchronous IO, socket communication the advantages and disadvantages of using a unikernel and their respective performance implications.
We'll also take a look at how future iterations of the C++ standard library, could solve some of those problems.
