Please note that the main website has now moved to: https://cpp.chat Each week, or thereabouts, we chat with guests from the C++ community about what they're doing, what interests them, and what's going on in the world of C++. Your hosts: Jon Kalb (http://slashslash.info) is an independent C++ trainer and runs CppCon (https://cppcon.org) and C++ Now (http://cppnow.org). Phil Nash (https://levelofindirection.com) is Developer Advocate for C++ tools at JetBrains (http://jetbrains.com/cpp) and ...

This week we chat with a vector-of-bool (a.k.a. Colby Pike). We talk about pseudonyms, modules, build systems and his standard layout proposal, Pitchfork. At the last minute we branch into TDD and what makes good design. But what prompts Michael Caisse, in the chat, to respond, "because we are not monsters", and why does that cat say "test first"? …
 
This week we chat with a Yuri Minaev, of PVS Studio, about static analysis - and why you shouldn't be skipping on this essential part of software development. Why is using a static analysis tool better than peer review (the clue is in the title)? Should you do both? What is the most common bug? And what does happen if you write to address zero? We …
 
This week we chat with a panel of C++ trainers from around the world (but mostly from Germany, for some reason) - Nicolai Josuttis, Jason Turner, Rainer Grimm, Klaus Iglberger and Mateusz Pusz. We talk about how bringing in a good trainer will keep your costs down, whether online training works or not, and why C++ is different to most other languag…
 
This week we chat with Bryce Adelstein Lelbach about how the ISO C++ WG21 committee is evolving - and his roles within it (and beyond) are evolving, too. We also look at the cross-over and interaction with the C standard, and even other languages. Is C really the Latin of programming languages? What is the relationship between the languages and the…
 
This week we chat with five members of the SG16 Unicode Study Group, Zach Laine, Tom Honermann, Steve Downey, Peter Brett and Corentin Jabot. We talk about their efforts to get all things Unicode into the C++ standard in a tour that takes us from 5000 years ago, through the 80s and 90s up to the 2020s! We look at every known language, including a f…
 
This week we chat with James Berrow about colo(u)r, and how we're doing it all wrong (and not just the spelling). We look at why colour management is complicated, how RGB doesn't exist, and how everybody (well, almost everybody) get's it all wrong. We also look at the graphics proposal, and James' critique of it, as well as how he is working with t…
 
This week we chat with Ansel Sermersheim and Barbara Geller about Copperspice, Doxypress, csLibGuarded and kitchen utensils. We find out that Barbara and Ansel are not just library people but are actually programmers - and programmers that know how to build abstractions. We chat about why they started CopperSpice, how it got it's name, and what els…
 
This week we chat with Greg Law about debugging and going back in time! How do things change when we can wait for something to go wrong, then go back to any point in time and examine the program state, like The Matrix's "Bullet Time"? How is this even possible, and what challenges need to be overcome? We also answer that age old question: what's th…
 
This week we chat with Vittorio Romeo about the pros and cons of backwards compatibility in C++, and his proposal to get the best of both worlds: Epochs. As well as language compatibility, we also discuss ABI compatibility - why breaking these things is such a problem, but how not breaking them is increasingly becoming a problem. We also, finally, …
 
This week we chat with Clare Macrae about Approval Testing, testing in general, the challenges (and some solutions to) testing legacy code - as well as highly visual environments like Qt GUIs or image processing apps. Working with an existing codebase that doesn't have tests can be scary and time consuming. But getting it under test is challenging,…
 
This week, in a cpp.chat exclusive, we chat with Sean Baxter about Circle - the C++ compiler that he wrote. That’s a C++ compiler. That he wrote. Oh, and it does meta-programming in a way that we’re only dreaming of part of for C++23 or 26! So what can it do, and what is it useful for? Why is Jon struggling to wrap his head around what Sean has ach…
 
In our second live CppCon episode we chat with Sean Parent about relationships, working with Alexander Stepanov, over-object-orientizing things and, yes, even rotate. Sean tells us stories from his years at Adobe, including how he first came to work with Stepanov (the father of the STL) - a well as some spectacularly bad responses to interview prob…
 
The first of our two, live, CppCon episodes - this time we sit with Andrei Alexandrescu and Herb Sutter to introspect about introspection and take exception to exceptions. We also talk about the "Engage, Entertain, Educate: Technical Speaking that Works" class that Andrei was involved with, again, at this year's CppCon. But Andrei describes himself…
 
This week we chat with Patricia Aas about secure coding practices, using computers to count votes in elections and the two hardest problems in software development. Patricia and Phil have both been at NDC TechTown all week where Patricia gave a keynote, a two-day class, a talk and hosted a meet-up - but still found time to chat with us. We discuss …
 
This week we're joined by Victor Zverovich as we chat about his string formatting library - which has just been adopted into C++20 - as well as the possibility of a corresponding input library, various smaller C++17 features, and whether it's possible to travel continuously from C++ event to C++ event. We also announce the dates for C++ on Sea 2020…
 
This week we chat with Guy Davidson about linear algebra coming to C++, other mathsy stuff, audio, games dev and C++ training evenings. We barely even mention 2D graphics once! Did you know that Guy has written four linear algebra libraries in C++ since 1990? He’s in a good position to be involved with the standardisation effort. But how do you bri…
 
This week we chat with Juan Pedro Bolívar Puente (a.k.a. JuanPe) about immutable data structures, value types and more - and definitely not functional programming! How can data types be valuable if you can't change them? How can copying huge amounts of data be cheap? How can we go beyond Object-Oriented Programming - and get concurrency almost for …
 
This week we chat with Pablo Santos, founder and chief engineer of Plastic SCM, and SemanticMerge. Pablo talks to us about how the "full stack" version control system he created at Plastic SCM differentiates itself in the age of GitHub, how times have moved on for VCS systems (largely driven by GitHub), and how it might even be being used outside o…
 
This week we chat with Ivan Čukić about Functional Programming, despite him not wanting to be known as "The Functional Programming Guy", TMP and OO, and how he was taught C++ in high school. How does Ivan balance writing books (in fact will he write another book?) and speaking at conferences internationally, while teaching full time at university? …
 
After a break of a few weeks we're back with an episode actually recorded on March 12th (when Phil had a cold). We chat with Gor Nishanov about Coroutines, which were just adopted into the draft standard for C++20. We talk about what Coroutines are, why recent talks may have been given the wrong impression (as they focused on a library writer's per…
 
This week we're joined by Ben Craig as we chat about Modules, as was recently adopted into the C++20 draft standard in the meeting at Kona. We talk about how modules interact with build systems, what the deal with macros is, and the new study group set up to advise tools vendors on best practices for supporting modules in an optimal way. We also ta…
 
We've talked about contracts before, but this week Björn Fahller joins us to give us his thoughts, based on his recent talk at C++ on Sea. This is all pre-Kona - the recent Standards meeting that saw several tweaks to the wording for contracts in the draft standard for C++20. Björn gives us a refresher of what contracts actually are, and how many o…
 
This week we talk to Adi Shavit and Michael Gopshtein about their new conference in Tel Aviv - Core C++. We also get thoroughly distracted by talking about modules - and whether there is a major toolability issue with them, as currently proposed. Special Guests: Adi Shavit and Michael Gopshtein. Links: Core C++ Core C++ - Eurovision Ticket Raffle —…
 
This week we welcome back Kevlin Henney and talk to him about Deliberate Practice: what it is, how to relates to C++ programmers, and the workshop on it he's running with Jon Jagger at C++ on Sea. Along the way we also get into gaming the documentation writing system, the PDSA cycle and Boyd OODA loop, Mind Mapping and TDD. All in the pursuit of be…
 
This week we chat with Frances Buontempo and Andy Balaam about Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and Genetic Algorithms. We learn how ML is mostly just "multiplying and adding up" with a bit of "randomly trying stuff out" but that you might need a kill switch - except when you don't. We also revive the "C++ Lamentations" debate and try to m…
 
This week we’re joined, once again (yet for the first time) by Nicolai Josuttis, and we talk about how much of a C++ expert you need to be to write “Hello, World” and initialize objects. We also discover how strongly Jon feels about initializer_list constructor syntax - and what Nico thinks about it. Special Guest: Nicolai Josuttis. Links: C++17 - …
 
Recorded December 14th 2018 This week we welcome Hana Dusíková to the show and we chat about her compiler time regular expressions library, Protocol Buffers, std::embed and getting good compile and runtime performance when doing metaprogramming. Unfortunately, due to an extended edit time, the volunteer and diversity ticket programmes for C++ on Se…
 
This week we’re joined by Matt “Compiler Explorer” Godbolt as we chat about what your compiler is and isn’t doing for you, doing a keynote for your first talk, and how having co-maintainers lets you go to flute concerts. Special Guest: Matt Godbolt. Links: Compiler Explorer Quick Bench Undefined Behavior and CERT’s Vulnerability Note C++ on Sea Vol…
 
After a bit of a break, we're back - and with non-other than Bjarne Stroustrup! We chat about the state of C++, from the hardcore of the committee to the whole community and also look at where we think it should go and maybe where it is going. Links: C++ on Sea China CppCon Core C++ (Israel) ADC (Videos) San Diego trip-report (Reddit) Bjarne’s CppC…
 
Recorded live at CppCon on September 28th After a bit of a break in the lead up to CppCon, in this interview we chat with Herb Sutter - in front of a live audience at CppCon itself. We chat a bit about the conference, how it has been "the best ever" (yet again), but also how it is the last one... ... in that location (CppCon moves to Aurora, just n…
 
Recorded August 29th 2018 This week we chat with Tristan Brindle, Oli Ddin and Tom Breza about C++ London Uni - a free course, based in London (and remotely), for learning C++. We hear, not only what the course is about and how you can join, but some inside insights into the challenges - and rewards - of teaching C++ to beginners. We also talk abou…
 
Recorded August 26th 2018 This week we chat with David Schwartz, CTO of Ripple, the company behind the XRP cryptocurrency. He tells us what sets XRP apart from Bitcoin, summarises what Proof Of Work actually means, and how XRP's Distributed Agreement Protocol is better, and some of the reasons that C++ was chosen as the implementation language. Gue…
 
Recorded August 16th 2018 This week we welcome back Howard Hinnant and Arthur O'Dwyer to discuss Arthur's paper, P1144, "Trivially Relocatable". We talk about what it is, what problems it solves, older papers covering the same ground, and even another in-flight paper (P1029) that it overlaps with. As one of the original authors of C++11's move sema…
 
Recorded August 8th 2018 This week we manage to align with the calendars of Kevlin Henney and Martin Hořeňovský to talk about testing and beyond - with a particular focus on Catch2 - past, present and future. We discuss how some of Kevlin's ideas influenced Catch originally, and how Martin later joined as a co-maintainer (who does most of the work)…
 
Recorded August 2nd 2018 The week we chat with Eva Conti, Troy Hunt and Matthew Butler on the topic of secure coding (so that's what safe coding is!). Eva and Matt are reformed hackers themselves and share some of their unique insights from the dark side, and how that can inform all of us in our coding practices - including those that think they do…
 
Recorded July 30th 2018 This week we welcome Anastasia Kazakova and Dmitry Kozhevnikov to talk about the recent release of CLion 2018.2, as well as the upcoming release of ReSharper C++. We particularly talk about the new clangd based language engine that CLion now uses alongside it's own, as well as the next step towards alternate build system sup…
 
Recorded July 22nd 2018 This week we chat with Timur Doumler and Brian Heim about the challenges peculiar to audio development, and find that most are shared with other domains - especially those that consider themselves low-latency and/ or real-time. Timur has, in the past, worked on audio software at ROLI and Native Instruments, and has been a ma…
 
Recorded July 16th 2018 This week we discuss some of the challenges of embedded development. We're joined by Michael Caisse, Ben Craig and Odin Holmes for a chat that, at times, touches on volatile subjects! We'll also consider why those of us not working in embedded should care - and what possible future features and directions of C++ could benefi…
 
Recorded July 7th, 2018 This week our main topic is Simplicity and we're joined by Kate Gregory, who will be keynoting CppCon on the subject, and Jonathan Boccara, whose blog is often focused on pursuing simplicity, too. We cover how to deal with complexity in legacy code, e.g. a report function containing thousands of lines of switch statement (an…
 
Recorded July 1st 2018 This week we didn't start out with a theme topic, but spent time discussing conferences around the world as well as whether too many diluting proposals are going through the standards process. Also, is it actually easier to get a library into the standard than Boost? What really was the moral of the story of the Vasa? Guests:…
 
Recorded June 23rd, 2018 This week we discuss Contracts, both as an idea (and possible implementations) and as the language level proposal currently progressing through the ISO process. We have one of the proposal's authors, John Lakos, as well as an interested bystander, Kévin Boissonneault. We finally get to Jon's rant on non-const arguments in p…
 
Recorded June 17th, 2018. After a break for vacations and the ISO meeting in Rapperswil, we're back with an episode on the new SG15 study group and, in particular, its focus on dependency managers and build systems. All of our guests have been major contributors to different dependency managers and build systems and combine their ideas and experien…
 
Recorded May 24th 2018 More proposals! This time the main topic is p0847r1, "Deducing this", authored by our guests, Gašper and Ben, along with Barry Revzin and Simon Brand. This proposal is a simple idea, that works by allowing you to make explicit something that has always been implicit in the language. Yet the consequences are many and far reach…
 
Recorded May 18th 2018 In this episode we discuss Herb Sutter's new proposal, p0709, "Zero-overhead deterministic exceptions", a.k.a. "Static Exceptions" - and a couple of supporting proposals from Niall Douglas (p1028 and p1029). We talk about what the proposed feature is, how it works, and why it is so signifiant. Find out why Jon is, "really exc…
 
Recorded May 10th on location during C++ Now in Aspen, Colorado. In this episode we discuss, with speakers, organisers and attendees - old and new - what it is that makes C++ Now special: from bears to beers, low-level experts to high altitude running, C++ Now has it all. With guests: Brian Heim Jonathan Müller (@foonathan) Peter Bindels (@dascandy…
 
Recorded in April immediately after the ACCU 2018 conference with a panel of guests involved with the conference and ACCU communities: Giovanni Asproni Ralph McArdell Bob Schmidt Roger Orr Lisa Lippincott Francis Glassborow Gail Olis Felix Petriconi Note that this episode was recorded before episode 26, with Rob and Jason, so Jon introduces it as i…
 
This is the first episode of cpp.chat in the podcast format, and the first of the rebooted series, following a hiatus since last summer. In this episode we introduce, new producer and co-host, Phil Nash, and entertain Rob and Jason from "the other C++ podcast", CppCast. We turn the tables on these long-time interviewers, digging into their backgrou…
