Let's ease in the Hackathon with less "business and development" oriented topics and use Azure as a platform for the things that are important to us in the free time. So let's use Azure to host your IRC Shell, VoIP Server for your guild or a game server for your favorite games. Let your imagination run!
Modern C++ is clean, safe, and fast. It continues to deliver better and simpler features than were previously available. How can we help most C++ programmers get the improved features by default, so that our code is better by upgrading to take full advantage of modern C++?
This talk continues from Bjarne Stroustrup's Monday keynote to describe how the open C++ core guidelines project is the cornerstone of a broader effort to promote modern C++. Using the same cross-platform effort Stroustrup described, this talk shows how to enable programmers write production-quality C++ code that is, among other benefits, type-safe and memory-safe by default – free of most classes of type errors, bounds errors, and leak/dangling errors – and still exemplary, efficient, and fully modern C++.
Background reading: Bjarne Stroustrup's 2005 "SELL" paper, "A rationale for semantically enhanced library languages," is important background for this talk.
