The first podcast for C++ developers, by C++ developers!
Physical Units and a System of Quantities
Mateusz Pusz joins Phil and new guest co-host, Anastasia Kazakova. Mateusz talks to us about his physical units (and quantities) library, mp-units, why v2 is a complete redesign compared to the previous version, and how incorporating a system of quantities is so central to this new design.
AI and Random Numbers
Frances Buontempo joins Phil and returning guest co-host, Matt Godbolt. Frances talks to us about her new book on modern C++ as well as her the topic of her previous book on machine learning. We discuss the differences between LLM-based AI and more statistical approaches, as well as where random numbers fit into all this and the limitations of their current support in C++.
Automatic Static Analysis
Abbas Sabra joins Phil and Timur. Abbas talks to us about static analysis, the challenges - and benefits - of analysing C++ code, and a new feature from Sonar that can scan public repos with zero config.
Mark Gillard joins Timur and guest co-host Jason Turner. Mark talks to us about reflection, SIMD, and his library soagen, a structure-of-arrays generator for C++.
How CLion works under the hood
Dmitry Kozhevnikov joins Timur and guest co-host Matt Godbolt. Dmitry talks to us about how the CLion IDE works under the hood.
Safety, Security and Modern C++, with Bjarne Stroustrup
Bjarne Stroustrup joins Phil and Timur. Bjarne talks to us about safety in C++ through profiles, as well as modules and concepts - and looks ahead to what else is coming next.
I’m not even a C++ dev and I love the show
Jason and Rob’s relationship on the show is genuine. They’re industry vets and humble enough to admit when they don’t know much about a topic. The shows ads are never too long and the content is always amazing. Keep up the great work!!
Guest audio is too poor
I have been trying to listen to the show for a year and a half and I just can’t hear it. Every time they have a guest on the show the audio is just too poor. You can only hear the guest under perfect background conditions but I only listen to podcasts while driving, doing dishes, taking a shower, or working out.
I really think they need to consider upgrading their conferencing software or give their guests a checklist of how to maximize their audio. Since it happens every time I think it’s their conferencing software.
It's refreshing to find a tech podcast that has quality content, and quality hosts. I subscribe to a few technical podcasts, and they are no where near the quality of this one. Great job guys! I look forward to each new podcast!
