Rob and Jason are joined by Patrice Roy to talk about the changes made to the C++20 Draft at the Toronto C++ Standards Committee Meeting.
Patrice Roy has been playing with C++, either professionally, for pleasure or (most of the time) both for over 20 years. After a few years doing R&D and working on military flight simulators, he moved on to academics and has been teaching computer science since 1998. Since 2005, he’s been involved more specifically in helping graduate students and professionals from the fields of real-time systems and game programming develop the skills they need to face today’s challenges. The rapid evolution of C++ in recent years has made his job even more enjoyable.
He’s been a participating member in the ISO C++ Standards Committee since late 2014 and has been involved with the ISO Programming Language Vulnerabilities since late 2015. He has five kids, and his wife ensures their house is home to a continuously changing number of cats, dogs and other animals.
Rob and Jason are joined by Gor Nishanov to talk about the C++ Coroutines proposal.
Gor Nishanov is a Principal Software Design Engineer on the Microsoft C++ team. He works on design and standardization of C++ Coroutines, and on asynchronous programming models. Prior to joining C++ team, Gor was working on distributed systems in Windows Clustering team.
Rob and Jason are joined by Barbara Geller and Ansel Sermersheim to talk about the CopperSpice C++ GUI Library.
Barbara is an independent consultant working as a programmer and software developer for over 25 years. She has been a featured speaker at more than a dozen trade shows and computer conferences in the US and on two separate occasions Barbara taught an extended class in software architecture and GUI design for the Panama Canal Commission in Panama.
Ansel has been working as a programmer for over 15 years. Ansel worked for 8 years at a communications company designing scalable, high performance, multi-threaded network daemons in C++ and he is currently a software consultant for RealityShares in San Francisco.
Rob and Jason are joined by Christopher Di Bella to talk about his experience teaching C++ and his proposed changes to Concepts.
Christopher Di Bella will soon be a Runtime Technology Engineer at Codeplay, and was previously university tutor (teaching assistant) for the course 'Advanced C++ Programming', at the University of New South Wales, Australia. He is an avid C++ programmer, and also enjoys film, board games, and snowboarding in his spare time.
