Rob and Jason are joined by Gal Zaban to talk about Reverse Engineering C++.

 

Gal is currently working as a Security Researcher. Her passion is Reverse Engineering with a particular interest in C++ code. In her spare time, when not delving into low-level research, she designs and sews her own clothes and loves to play the Clarinet.

Rob talks to several members of the Visual C++ team about both Visual Studio Code and the upcoming Visual Studio 2019 release and more.

Marian Luparu is the Lead Program Manager of the C++ team responsible for the C++ experience in Visual Studio, VS Code as well as Vcpkg.

Simon Brand is Microsoft’s C++ Developer Advocate. Their background is in compilers and debuggers for embedded accelerators, but they’re also interested in generic library design, metaprogramming, functional-style C++, undefined behaviour, and making our communities more welcoming and inclusive.

Tara Raj is the Program Manager for the C++ experience in Visual Studio Code and Vcpkg. She is interested in developer tools and Linux.

Bob Brown is the engineering manager for C++ experiences in Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code.

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.
