Rob and Jason are joined by Vittorio Romeo from Bloomberg. They first discuss some changes in the recent Visual Studio update for cross platform linux development, and some post-Cologne ISO developments. Then Vittorio goes into more detail on his proposal for C++ epochs, which could allow the language to more easily introduce breaking changes in the future.

Vittorio Romeo has been a Software Engineer at Bloomberg for more than 3 years, working on mission-critical company C++ infrastructure and providing Modern C++ training to hundreds of fellow employees.

He began programming around the age of 8 and quickly became a C++ enthusiast. Vittorio created several open-source C++ libraries and games, published many video courses and tutorials, and actively participates in the ISO C++ standardization process.

He is also an active member of the C++ community and has an ardent desire to share his knowledge and learn from others. When he’s not writing code, Vittorio enjoys weightlifting and fitness-related activities, competitive/challenging computer gaming and sci-fi movies/TV-series.

Rob and Jason are joined by Marco Magdy from Amazon. They first discuss Dropbox's announcement of abandoning their C++ mobile platform strategy in favor of Swift and Kotlin. Then Marco goes over what AWS Lambda is, what you can do with it and some of the challenges he faced bringing C++ support to AWS Lambda.

 

Marco is a senior software engineer who has been working at AWS for the past four years. He has been programming in C++ on/off since 2001.

Before joining Amazon, Marco worked at a few smaller companies building scalable web applications using .NET, GWT and C++.

Rob and Jason are joined by Bryce Adelstein Lelbach. They discuss the mdspan proposal that first introduced Bryce to the C++ ISO committee. They also discuss Bryce's role as moderator for the /r/cpp subreddit and talk about the upcoming CppCon 2019 conference.

Bryce Adelstein Lelbach

Bryce Adelstein Lelbach has spent nearly a decade developing libraries in C++. Bryce is passionate about C++ evolution and is one of the leaders of the C++ community. He is an officer of ISO/IEC JTC1/SC22/WG21, the C++ Standards Committee. Bryce chairs both the C++ Committee's Tooling Study Group (SG15) and Library Evolution Incubator (SG18). He is the program chair for the C++Now and CppCon conferences, and the chief organizer of the Bay Area C++ User Group.

On the C++ Committee, he has personally worked on the C++17 parallel algorithms, executors, futures, senders/receivers, multidimensional arrays, and modules. Bryce works at NVIDIA, where he leads the CUDA C++ core libraries team. He is one of the initial developers of the HPX parallel runtime system. He also helped start the LLVM Linux initiative and has occasionally contributed to the Boost C++ libraries.

Rob and Jason are joined by Matt Butler to discuss his perspective on the ISO Cologne meeting and Secure Coding.

Matthew Butler is a security researcher who has been using C++ professionally since 1990. He has spent the past three decades as a systems architect and software engineer developing systems for network security, law enforcement and national defense. He primarily works in signals intelligence and security on platforms ranging from embedded micro-controllers to FPGAs to large-scale, real-time platforms.

He is on the staff of both CppCon and C++Now as well as a member of the C++ Standards Committee. He spends most of his time in EWG, SG12 (Undefined Behavior and Vulnerabilities), SG14 (Low Latency) and, now, SG21 (Contracts). He is also a member of WG23 (Programming Language Vulnerabilities).

He prefers the role of predator when dealing with hackers and lives in the Rocky Mountains with his wife and daughter.

Rob and Jason are joined by Clare Macrae to discuss Approval Tests and how they can be used to quickly test legacy C++ code.

 

Clare is an independent consultant, helping teams streamline their work with legacy and hard-to-test C++ and Qt code.

She has worked in software development for over 30 years, and in C++ for 20 years.

Since 2017, she has used her spare time to work remotely with Llewellyn Falco on ApprovalTests.cpp, to radically simplify testing of legacy code. She has enjoyed this so much that she recently went independent, to focus even more on helping others to work more easily with legacy code.      Clare was until recently a Principal Scientific Software Engineer at Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre. She is the original author of their popular 3D crystal structure visualisation program Mercury.
