Rob and Jason are joined by Matt Godbolt to discuss the online Compiler Explorer project.

 

Matt is a developer at trading firm DRW. Before that he's worked at Google, run a C++ tools company, and spent over a decade in the games industry making PC and console games. He is fascinated by performance and created GCC Explorer, to help understand how C++ code ends up looking to the processor. When not performance tuning C++ code he enjoys writing emulators for 8-bit computers in Javascript.

Rob and Jason are joined by Mark Logan to discuss his experience building a game engine in Javascript and C++

Mark started learning C++ with Borland Turbo C++ in high school, so that he could build video games. After 20 years, he's finally starting to feel like he knows what he's doing. After graduating from Northeastern University's College of Computer Science, Mark spent 7 years at Google, mainly working on internal infrastructure and automation. More recently, he returned to his first love - game programming - and helped found a studio called Artillery. He's currently the tech lead on Artillery's free-to-play RTS, code-named Atlas. He spends his time working on performance optimization, networking, and solving cross-platform development problems.

Rob and Jason are joined by Dr. Greg Law to discuss reverse debugging with Undo Software.

Dr Greg Law is co-founder and CEO at Undo Software. He has spent nearly 20 years writing systems-level code, including novel kernel designs and networking architectures in academia and at a variety of start-ups. Greg finds it particularly rewarding to turn innovative software technology into “real” business development. He still gets to write some code, although sadly most of his coding these days is done on aeroplanes. Greg lives in Cambridge, England with his wife and two children.
