Here’s another CppCon talk video we hope you will enjoy – and why not register today for CppCon 2024!

Plenary: Cooperative C++ Evolution - Toward a Typescript for C++

by Herb Sutter

Summary of the talk:

C++23 is done. But C++ is not! In this talk I’ll give my personal perspectives on:

  • C++’s ongoing and very active evolution;
  • The latest progress updates on my cppfront experimental compiler, and what I’ve learned about modern ISO C++20 and C++23 in the experiment (https://github.com/hsutter/cppfront);
  • Why compatibility (and what kind, and how much) is essential; and
  • Why we should aim to keep bringing C++ forward successfully by cooperating and being part of C++’s ongoing true evolution via WG 21, even though that’s more work than pursuing a new fresh-but-competing evolutionary path.
