Rob and Jason are joined by Kirk Shoop to talk about the RxCpp library and the future of Executors in C++.

 

Kirk stumbled into an internship at Microsoft in the 90s that turned into contracting and eventually employment at Microsoft. At Microsoft Kirk sometimes pushed the compiler to its knees in the pursuit of libraries that prevent common errors. In 2013 Kirk joined Microsoft Open Technologies Inc to work on open source. Kirk began investing heavily in rxcpp in the belief that it is a better abstraction for async than the primitives commonly used. Now Kirk works at Facebook with Eric Niebler and Lewis Baker to build async range concepts and algorithms (with coroutines) into the c++ std library.

Rob and Jason are joined by Peter Bindels to talk about features approved at the ISO C++ Kona meeting for C++20 including Modules, Coroutines and much more.

Peter Bindels is a C++ software engineer who prides himself on writing code that is easy to use, easy to work with and well-readable to anybody familiar with the language. Since the last time he's been on CppCast he presented at multiple conferences about build tooling and simple code. In combining both, he created the build tool Evoke from cpp-dependencies and other smaller projects, leading to a simple to use build system presented at CppCon 2018. Earlier this year he presented its companion 2D Graphics library for absolute called Pixel at CppOnSea. He's active in both standards development as well as helping out with various things at conferences.

Rob and Jason are joined by Kris Jusiak to discuss [Boost].DI and [Boost].SML libraries.

 

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!'.

Rob and Jason are joined by Isabella Muerte to discuss her experience presenting multiple papers at her first ISO meeting in San Diego and her thoughts on Merged Modules.

Isabella Muerte is a C++ Bruja, Build System Titan, and an open source advocate. She cares deeply about improving the workflow and debugging experience the C++ community currently has and is designing and implementing an experimental next-generation build system called Coven based on ideas mentioned in her CppCon 2017 talk "There Will Be Build Systems", while also simultaneously ripping CMake apart and putting it back together again with a library titled IXM. She recently launched aliasa.io, a small URL routing service intended for the CMake FetchContent module. She enjoys playing Destiny 2, acquiring tattoos, and is currently trying to master the five elements of earth, wind, water, fire, and gun (but she makes no promises). She bows to no entity but the terrifying Eldritch Daystar we call the "sun", and hopes to one day own two german shepherds named Rip and Tear.
