Rob and Jason are joined by Botond Ballo and Tom Honermann to discuss what features were added and removed from the C++20 draft paper at the ISO meeting in Cologne.

 

Botond Ballo is a software engineer at Mozilla, where he has been working on the Firefox web browser's rendering engine for 6 years. He's been attending C++ standards meetings for about the same time, and blogging about them to keep the C++ user community informed about standardization progress. In the committee, his interests include general language evolution, reflection, and tooling. Botond likes to hack on IDEs and other developer tools in his spare time. Offline, you might spot him climbing rocks or reading fantasy novels.

Tom Honermann is a software engineer at Synopsys where he has been working on the Coverity static analyzer for the past 8 years. His first C++ standard committee meeting was Lenexa in 2015. He currently chairs the SG16 text and Unicode study group and participates in the SG2 modules, SG13 HMI/IO, and SG15 tooling study groups. His contributions to C++20 include the new char8_t builtin type. A C++ minion with 20 years professional experience. Husband and father of two awesome boys.

Rob and Jason are joined by Tyler Ang-Wanek to discuss leveraging C++ in an ElectronJS app like GitKraken.

Tyler Ang-Wanek has been developing software professionally for the past 3.5 years. He works as a senior developer at Axosoft, on the GitKraken team. His work primarily shifts among developing native node modules for use in GitKraken, architectural work for code and APIs around GitKraken, and developing new features for GitKraken. He is the creator of the node module Node Sentinel File Watcher (NSFW), a native file watcher written for GitKraken that has made its way into Atom and VSCode. One of his major accomplishments includes taking leadership of the open source native node module NodeGit. After much hard work on the NodeGit repo and within the community, Tyler joined the leadership group for LibGit2.

Rob and Jason are joined by Robert Maynard from Kitware to discuss CMake and VTK.

 

Robert Maynard is a principal engineer at Kitware and spends most of his time as a primary developer of VTK-m. VTK-m is a HPC toolkit of scientific visualization algorithms for highly concurrent processor and accelerator architectures. It uses a fine-grained concurrency model for data analysis and visualization algorithms allowing for seamless execution on GPU's or many-core CPUs.

When not working on VTK-m, Robert is either; writing CMake code, teaching CMake, or working to improve CMake.
