Rob and Jason are joined by Nevin Liber from Argonne National Lab. They first discuss a blog post discussing issues implementing small buffer optimizations in a constexpr context. Then they talk with Nevin about how he got involved with the ISO C++ committee and some of the proposals he's worked on.
Nevin ":-)" Liber is a computer scientist at Argonne National Laboratory, a C++ Committee member and a veteran C++ developer. He first discovered the language over three decades ago while at Bell Labs when a friend called and asked, “What do you know about C++? You folks invented it!”
His professional career has taken him across various industries and platforms: big data, low-latency, operating systems, embedded systems, telephony and now exascale computing, just to name a few. He spends much of his time pushing his peers, colleagues and friends to use modern C++ constructs along the way.
Looking to learn more about the language, he got involved with the C++ Committee and hosted both the C++ and C Standards meetings in Chicago. These days he frequently finds himself in the middle of the debates involving the more contentious parts of the Standard Library.

She has a masters degree in Computer Science and 14 years professional experience as a programmer, most of that time programming in C++. During that time she has worked in codebases with a high focus on security: two browsers (Opera and Vivaldi) and embedded Cisco telepresence systems. Currently she works as a trainer and consultant for the company TurtleSec, which she co-founded, which specializes in the intersection of programming and security.
Rob and Jason are joined by Jeri Ellsworth the CEO of Tilt Five. Jeri and Jason first geek out about the Commodore 64 with Jeri telling her story of building the C64 Direct-to-TV. Then she tells us about her new companies product the Tilt Five AR headset which is built with the tabletop gamer in mind and has SDKs for C++ and Unity.
Jeri Janet Ellsworth is an American entrepreneur and an autodidact computer chip designer and inventor. She gained fame in 2004 for creating a complete Commodore 64 system on a chip housed within a joystick, called C64 Direct-to-TV. That "computer in a joystick" runs 30 video games from the early 1980s, and at peak, sold over 70,000 units in a single day via the QVC shopping channel.
In September 2019 Jeri Ellsworth initiated a Kickstarter for a new device based on the same principles of the castAR, called Tilt Five.
Rob and Jason are joined by Philipp Schrader. They first discuss some post CppCon news and the LLVM 9.0 release. Then Phil talks about the work he's doing at Peleton Technology to enable the 'platooning' of trucks with software written in C++.
Phil started working in consulting primarily as a C programmer. Very quickly he found himself being tempted by the famous "object-oriented" programming language called C++.
He started volunteering at a local high-school robotics program where they used C++ to make their robots competitive.
Hooked on C++ he found Peloton Technology where he had the chance to learn and explore what C++ is capable of. He's still exploring :)
