Binary Object Serialization using Template Argument Deduction (and pseudo-Reflection)

Please welcome Chris Ryan as our speaker this month! Since we will all be safe at home folks will need to provide their own pizza - sorry.

Time and Location

May 20th, 2020 at 7:00 PM
On Line Using Microsoft Teams
+1 323-849-4874 United States, Los Angeles (Toll)
Conference ID: 917 017 259#

Abstract

There are many mechanisms for a program to persist data. Most are slow, bulky, and inflexible, that typically store flat data, in huge unsecure text files and are not able to save complex data structures.

I will present a minimally intrusive technique for serializing data, in a binary format, that is lean and flexible (schema free). When storing, it can deduce the data types. When loading it will dynamically create complex data structures. This is done through Template Argument Deduction and a technique represtivie of reflection. Reflection is unavailable as language feature being that it has deferred until C++23 or C++26. This is compliant with C++14 or later, platform agnostic and marco free.

In addition to archiving data to files, it has an extensible interface for bidirectional communication between processes and/or remote computers, via sockets. Techniques will be demonstrated to minimize storage footprint and secure archived data.

Speaker Bio

Chris Ryan, Classic C & Modern C++ Junkie Extraordinaire, A self-actualized geek. I was classically educated in Hardware and Software Engineering. After college, I mostly used ‘C’, until the mid-early 90’s when C++ became my primarily language. I have worked with many companies in engineering, science, medical, robotics and business domains, as an FTE and a contractor, from doing firmware & embedded projects to extremely complex massive systems. I frequently work on number crunching engines and low-level communication protocols. I have done everything from graphical/pixel pushing/user interfaces to drivers to database systems. I have worked on CppCon as a volunteer staff member. I manage multiple technical groups on LinkedIn, mostly around C, C++ and embedded.

Abstract

This is the sequel to the Remedial C++ 11 talk. Come to see what new features we got with C++14 that were not available before.

Here’s a link in case you want to watch the Remedial C++ 11 talk beforehand.

Culture of Code Reviews

Please welcome Lloyd Moore as our speaker this month! Since we will all be safe at home folks will need to provide their own pizza - sorry.

Time and Location

Abstract

Most everyone will agree code reviews are an essential component of producing quality code. Yet many groups still do not perform code reviews as part of their development process. In this talk I will share what I have learned on reducing the pain of incorporating code reviews into the development process. In particular we will look at techniques for reducing the time code reviews take, addressing some of the social dynamics that surround code reviews and how to develop a team culture that self promotes code reviews.

Take charge of your C++ dependencies with vcpkg

Please welcome Augustin Popa from Microsoft as our speaker this month! Since we will all be safe at home folks will need to provide their own pizza - sorry.

Time and Location

Conference ID: 917 017 259#

Abstract

Dependency management is a pain point for many C++ developers. Many teams are beginning to adopt existing package management solutions, but there's still a large part of our industry managing dependencies manually. In this talk, you will learn how you can adopt vcpkg to make your development process easier, safer, and more reproducible.

This year, vcpkg is expanding significantly by supporting a declarative manifest file, making it easier to manage private libraries, enabling installations of specific library versions, and enabling binary caching workflows to quickly provision CI runs or developer machines.

Whether you're a beginner learning about C++ package management for the first time, or someone familiar with vcpkg who wants to learn about the latest improvements, this talk will give an overview of how to get started and manage libraries for real world projects. Vcpkg's long term goal is to satisfy workflows for all C++ developers, whether you are a professional developer working with millions of lines of code, or a student trying to get through some classes

Speaker Bio

Augustin Popa is a Program Manager on the C++ team at Microsoft, planning and designing developer experiences in the Visual Studio IDE. Some of his past projects include ClangFormat, Google Test, and Boost.Test support. More recently, he is working on vcpkg, the cross-platform C++ library manager.
