This is a follow-up to +Dean Michael Berris' last article about value semantics and polymorphism. Do you think this approach might be helpful to your project?
In the previous post I teased a little about vtables, how they work, and whether people were familiar with them. Before I go into detail into that I'd like to rehash the notion of polymorphism first. ...

+Dean Michael Berris writes about +Sean Parent's talk at C++Now regarding value semantics and polymorphism. Feel like taking on the challenge in the post?
Lately I've been interested in formalising the notion of value semantics for one reason or another. I've been in email conversations with other people who have been interested in making value semantic...

This is the final part of the series on cpp-netlib's HTTP API updates by +Dean Michael Berris. There's another one lined up for tomorrow so look out for that one too!

Also, if you'd like to guest-post for C++ Soup and would like to share something interesting about C++ -- or if you've written something you'd like us to highlight -- let us know and let's work to get it posted!
This is the final part of the series on the HTTP API Plans. The previous two posts shed light on the history and the current issues with cpp-netlib's implementation and why we'd like to make changes t...

+Dean Michael Berris wrote up the history of cpp-netlib up to this point. It's part of a three-part series on updates that are going to happen in cpp-netlib in the upcoming version.
With Glyn's work on the URI proposal the C++ Network Library project has been moving forward onto bigger goals. One of these goals is the overhaul and update of the library to use more C++11 features ...

Are you interested in the C++ Committee Meetings? Did you know there's an upcoming one in Portland on Oct. 15-19? And did you know how you can get involved in the standards process?

This is +Dean Michael Berris writing about stuff he's learned in Google the past two years.
So I've left one hanging promise at least fall off my radar -- a manual vtable based implementation of the concept-based polymorphism implementation. As you all have known for a while now I've been wo...

+Rob Meijer This assumes that engineers stay on the project or maintenance of whatever they've written -- which is generally not a good assumption to make. Also the scale argues both ways: when you have lots of code and lots of engineers, the odds that non senior engineer will be looking at and using any particular piece of code will increase. That's not to say that there's no place for well-written core libraries that use templates (see the point on how experts scale better with C++).

In the end, optimising for the median is a better bet than optimising for the odds that you'll be able to get an engineer that can understand more complex template voodoo.

+Dean Michael Berris and +Glyn Matthews would like to get your feedback on what you think the future of C++ Network programming should be like for both cpp-netlib and the C++ standard library in general. Please fill out the survey and share it to as many people as you'd like!
 
The cpp-netlib maintainers (+Glyn Matthews and I) would like to gather feedback from cpp-netlib users and even non-users to guide our efforts in brining an HTTP and URI library included in the next C++ standard. This feedback survey is meant to help us both improve cpp-netlib and craft proposals for the networking study group. Please share as widely as you can -- the more responses we can get the better we can make decisions on the future of cpp-netlib and how we're going to craft proposals to the networking study group.

Your feedback will definitely be most appreciated.

Thank you in advance!
Drive
C++ Network Library User SurveyThis survey will influence the upcoming C++ standards proposal for HTTP and URI interfaces as well as the future direction of the library. Please feel free to share this with other people considering using cpp-netlib or even those that aren't using cpp-netlib. Your honest feedback would be most appreciated.

Some musings by +Dean Michael Berris on the dichotomy of design and computation. Do you think this makes sense?
I have a personal theory that the fundamental source of bugs in most software is the impedance mismatch between the notion of design and computation. We as software engineers are torn pulled in usuall...

Here's Part II of +Dean Michael Berris's look at the future of cpp-netlib.
Yesterday's article was an abbreviated history of the cpp-netlib project. Before I go into greater detail on the planned HTTP API updates (see the document here) I'll write about what the current chal...

It's almost time for the Portland Meeting and +Glyn Matthews has posted a proposal for the inclusion of a URI class into the C++ standard library!
Much has been going on with The C++ Network Library project even though I've not personally been productive this past few months. Glyn Matthews (follow @glynos and on Google+) has been hard at work in...
