Rob and Jason are joined by Udit Patidar and Anoop Prabha from Intel to discuss Intel's C++ Compiler and suite of Performance tuning Software Development Tools.

Anoop Prabha is currently a Software Engineer in Software and Services Group at Intel working with Intel® C++ Compiler Support. He played paramount role in driving customer adoption for features like Intel® Cilk™ Plus, Explicit Vectorization, Compute Offload to Intel® Processor Graphics across all Intel targets by creating technical articles and code samples, educating customers through webinars and 1-on-1 engagements. He is currently driving the Parallel STL feature adoption (new feature in 18.0 beta Compiler). Before joining Intel, Anoop worked at IBM India Private Ltd as a Software Developer for 3 years in Bangalore, India and later completed his graduation from State University of New York at Buffalo.

Udit Patidar works in the Developer Products Division of Intel, where he is a product manager for Intel software tools. He was previously a developer working on Intel compilers, focusing on OpenMP parallel programming model for technical and scientific computing workloads. He has extensive experience in high performance computing, both at Intel and previously. Udit holds an MBA in General Management from Cornell University, and a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Houston.

Rob and Jason are joined by Peter Bindels to discuss the Hippomocks mocking library and the cpp-dependencies  analyzer.

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. He's worked for a contractor for a few years and then made the switch to work at Tomtom, where he's been working on various parts of the software chain, last of which was a major cleanup in the navigation code base. In doing so he developed a tool to determine, check and improve dependencies between components, which allows quicker structural insight in complicated systems. He also created HippoMocks in 2008, one of the first full fledged C++ mocking frameworks that is still a relevant choice today. He has given two talks at Meeting C++ 2016 and will be giving his third talk, on Mocking in C++, at CppNow 2017.

Rob and Jason are joined by Akim Demaille to discuss VCSN, a platform for automata and rational expressions, and some of the interesting problems he faced while working on the library.

Akim has been participating in free software for about 20 years, starting with a2ps, an anything to PostScript tool written in C. In order to ensure its portability, he became a major contributor to GNU Autoconf, GNU Automake and GNU Bison.
Akim has been teaching and researching at EPITA, a French CS Graduate School, for eighteen years. He has taught formal languages, logics, OO design, C++ and compiler constructions, which includes the Tiger compiler, an educational project where students implement a compiler in C++. This project, whose assignment is regularly updated, keeps track of the C++ eveolutions, and this year's version uses C++17 features.
Akim's recent research interests are focused on the Vcsn platform, dedicated to automata and rational expressions.
He's recently been recruited by former students of his to be part of the Infinit team at Docker.
