From the article:

The key idea of the Facade Pattern is to provide a simplified interface to a complex system... 

The Facade Pattern is an ideal starting point for decoupling complex systems by introducing layers. Additionally, it can be used as a starting point for deprecating the old interface.

Here are the facts. ...

by Marius Elvert

From the article:

Another code snippet that can be found in a few of my projects is the “time queue”, which is a simple ‘priority queue’ style data structure that I use to defer actions to a later time. ...

CopperSpice: Comparison Operators: Breaking Change in C++20

New video on the CopperSpice YouTube Channel:

Comparison Operators: Breaking Change in C++20

by Barbara Geller and Ansel Sermersheim

About the video:

C++20 added a feature for the compiler to auto generate comparison operators which is often referred to as the spaceship operator. We found a way this can break existing code when supplying your own comparison functions. Watch our video to find out how this can happen in your existing code which has never used the spaceship operator before.

FOSSA is announcing the GA of a security and license scanning capability for C and C++ projects

FOSSA was founded to provide the most relevant and real-time end-to-end governance for all third-party code. They now announce the general availability of C and C++ Security and License Scanning

Announcing the GA of C and C++ Security and License Scanning
By Gauthami Polasani

From the article:

Unlike other C/C++ scanning tools, FOSSA does not take a one-solution-fits-all approach to dependency identification in such a complex and layered ecosystem. FOSSA uses multi-pronged strategies (as described below) to accurately identify dependencies and surface security and license risks — regardless of how the code is included.).
