Meeting C++ 2019 summary

by Schneide blog

From the article:

A fellow colleague and me had the pleasure to attend this years Meeting C++ 2019 from November 14th-16th in Berlin. It was my second visit and a quite interesting and insightful one. Therefore I would like to give a short summary and share some of my take-aways...

How C++17 Benefits from Boost Libraries, Part Two

by Bartlomiej Filipek

From the article:

As you know, Boost libraries give us a vast set of handy algorithms, types and features that we don’t have in the Standard Library. Many functionalities were “ported” into core C++. For example, in C++11 we got std::regex, threading and smart pointers..

How C++17 Benefits from Boost Libraries, Part One

by Bartlomiej Filipek

From the article:

In today’s article, I’ll show you battle-tested features from the well-known Boost libraries that were adapted into C++17.

With the growing number of elements in the Standard Library, supported by experience from Boost you can write even more fluent C++ code.

Sean Parent to keynote C++ on Sea 2020

We're thrilled to announce that Sean Parent will be joining us as our third keynote speaker for 2020. A few things had to click in to place before we could make this announcement, so it's a big relief that we can finally let the cat out of the bag!

Sean Parent - our third keynote speaker

From the article:

Some years ago, Sean worked on Photoshop at Adobe. Apparently he liked it so much we went back to work on it again! He's also worked at Apple and Google - but many in the community know him, particularly, for raising our awareness of algorithms.

C++20 and ReSharper C++

Do you plan to start using C++20 any time soon?

C++20 and ReSharper C++

by Phil Nash

From the article:

In July of this year, in the German city of Cologne, the ISO WG21 committee approved the full draft of C++20. After Belfast, in November, we now have just one more meeting (in Prague) to deal with national body comments and get their approval. That means that, barring any catastrophes, C++20 will become the current standard sometime after February of next year.

So C++20 is still in the future, but we now have a very good idea of everything that will be in it. Large sections of it have already been implemented in several compilers. But it’s not just the compilers that are getting ahead of the game. ReSharper C++ supports many of these features already, too – often with extra analysis and insights enabled by them.

Trip Report: C++ Standards Meeting in Belfast, November 2019

by Botond Ballo

From the article:

Last week I attended a meeting of the ISO C++ Standards Committee (also known as WG21) in Belfast, Northern Ireland. This was the third and last committee meeting in 2019; you can find my reports on preceding meetings here (July 2019, Cologne) and here (February 2019, Kona), and previous ones linked from those. These reports, particularly the Cologne one, provide useful context for this post...
