Episode 47 - We Made It Even Worse

by Jon Kalb and Phil Nash

About the episode

This week we’re joined, once again (yet for the first time) by Nicolai Josuttis, and we talk about how much of a C++ expert you need to be to write “Hello, World” and initialize objects.

We also discover how strongly Jon feels about initializer_list constructor syntax - and what Nico thinks about it.

by Rob Irving and Jason Turner

About the interviewee:

Kris is a C++ Software Engineer who currently lives a couple of doors down from CppCon 2019. He has worked in different industries over the years including telecommunications, games and most recently finance for Quantlab Financial. He has an interest in modern C++ development with a focus on performance and quality. He is an open source enthusiast with multiple open source libraries where he uses template metaprogramming techniques to support the C++ rule - "Don't pay for what you don't use" whilst trying to be as declarative as possible with a help of domain-specific languages. Kris is also a keen advocate of extreme programming techniques, test/behaviour driven development and truly believes that 'the only way to go fast is to go well!'.

CopperSpice: Inheritance

New video on the CopperSpice YouTube Channel:


by Barbara Geller and Ansel Sermersheim

About the video:

In this video, we look at the full variety of inheritance mechanisms that C++ provides. The C++ object model allows several different types of inheritance relationships, both single and multiple, as well as support for composition. Some of the terminology around these inheritance relationships can be quite confusing, and we present some best practices for avoiding miscommunication and misunderstandings. We address questions of how these features interact and why you would choose one type of inheritance over another.
