This years CppCon schedule looks awesome. Too bad that conference is on the wrong continent :( Here's hoping for some great recordings like last year.

That's the problem. Even at >=2x playback speed it's just so much material. And it is just one conference.

Edge doesn't support U2F? Well. Can't try using it for GitHub then.

With AWS Lambda style FaaS becoming all the rage I can't help but smirk at the realization how conceptually close those are to good old CGI and PHP in shared hosting from a programmers POV ;) The linked article is a nice summary over advantages and drawbacks of this model in the specific form it is implemented for FaaS style services.
Serverless architectures replace a managed server with a collection of third party services and FaaS

Have a tour of the Apollo Lunar Module source code from the guy who wrote it. Wow! History!

Turns out synchronizing fireflies with LEDs is a thing. Kinda mesmerizing.

Remote compilation and debugging on Linux for Visual Studio is getting better and better. This video gives a short overview about recentish feature additions.

However the - for me - most interesting part was the last minute in which they hint at them talking with the Bash on Windows team. Being able to compile & debug for Windows and Linux on the same platform from the same IDE without the overhead/disconnect a VM or remote host introduces would be awesome.

As it is right now the extra effort to even compile test on the other platform often means people just don't do it resulting in accidentally breaking one or the other.
Today's episode covers our Visual Studio C++ for Linux Development extension! If you're building applications for Linux and want to keep your familiar Visual Studio environment, you can now do

Jason Turner - one of the co-hosts of cppcast - has a neat video series called C++Weekly where he publishes a shortish (usually 5-10 minutes) video on a topic of modern C++ every week. This includes current C++(14) but also upcoming C++17. Existing videos are about topics like constexpr if, variadic templates, futures and other tidbits. In the most recent one he exemplifies why C++ high-level programming can be so efficient by targeting a Commodore 64 with C++14.

If 5-10 minutes is still to much you can easily watch most of the videos at 2-3x speed and still get the gist of it making them a nice and short "bite" of C++.

I need to compose myself a list of all the little c++1x things that are useful, solidly review some legacy code with an eye for where things like to_string, tie, ranged for etc all fit in.
I updated a lot of boost-using code to std code recently, and realised hey, I could skip the boost bind to std bind and just jump straight to lambdas. When you know the syntax, roughly, but don't actively use them then the first one or two are pretty haltingly typed. But after you've hammered out the 20th lambda in a row ...

Latest SpaceX experimental landing unfortunately failed. On the bright side we'll get another rapid unscheduled disassembly video ;) Also SpaceX won't need to extend their storage hangar for used boosters as soon.

Wow. Some German bonds now have negative interest. I guess we should go shopping now? Could use some new infrastructure or something.
