Monday 5th February 2018: 9.52am. Link shared: #boostoutcome#boost-outcome#boostcppOutcome is accepted into Boost, and links to the review manager's report (be warned, it is lengthy). Here is what I wrote in acknowledgement:I'd like to thank Charley for writing such a lengthy and detailed review report, in addition to performing duties in one of the hardest review managements I think I've seen this decade.I'd like to thank the reviewers for their feedback, and all those who have written me emails and sent me their notes and pull requests.
Thursday 18th January 2018: 9.40pm. Link shared: My third Boost peer review begins tomorrow, and lasts ten days. Let's hope that this time I succeed, only been at this since 2012, and the proposed C++ library only since 2014!#boost-outcome #boostcpp #cpp
Wednesday 7th June 2017: 8.24am. Link shared: My proposed Boost.Outcome library's review report: It was rejected after one of the lengthiest reviews in many years. Lots of good feedback on how it ought to look. #boostcpp #c++ #boost-outcome
Saturday 3rd June 2017: 9.45pm. The peer review of my proposed Boost.Outcome library ended yesterday after being extended to two weeks to allow more discussion. Some 732 emails were sent on the topic, one of the most vigorous debates on boost-dev in many years, and a very highly productive one I think despite that we did not find consensus.#boostcpp #c++ #boost-outcome
Tuesday 2nd May 2017: 2.47pm. My latest conference video, this one being on the lightweight monadic transport expected<T, E> proposed for C++. This is my first conventional "knowledge transfer" talk where I simply pour knowledge out of my brain into the jug that is the audience as is traditional pedagogy, up until now I had argued a case or had done workshops, knowing that conference organisers always feel a lack of the latter and therefore tend to accept workshops quicker.
Saturday 8th April 2017: 11.49pm. Link shared: Proposed Boost.AFIO v2 is resurrected, and now passes all its unit tests for the first time since Oct 17th. All the work done to proposed Boost.Outcome to get it ready for peer review (which will happen mid-May!) had caused AFIO to suffer hefty code rot given how dependent it is on Outcome, but none of the derotting fixes were hard, just time consuming.
Monday 13th March 2017: 6.11pm. Link shared: One of those big ol personally momentus days today. In the wee small hours last night shivering in Clara's bedroom as I'd stayed there working on the laptop after putting her to bed and it got cold, I finally delivered my Outcome library to Boost peer review. That library has taken me two years of my free time to write, and a never ending long tail of incredibly boring minute detail over the past four months or so to actually deliver the thing.
Wednesday 4th January 2017: 8.48pm. Link shared: Nailed this cunning piece of cmake hackery today, so I thought I would share it. It solves the problem of cmake annoyingly not supporting out of the box per-target setting of C++ exceptions on/off, C++ RTTI on/off and whether to use the static or dynamic C++ runtime. It also, very usefully, stops the warning MSVC makes about overriding the C++ exceptions enable that cmake enforces in the core compile flags on MSVC, this is amazingly useful when you turn on error on warnings and your C++ has exceptions disabled.
Tuesday 13th September 2016: 11.10am. Link shared: Finished writing the talk description of my CppCon workshop next week:"This is the third and likely final part of a "from first principles" series of beginner's workshops based on developing the v2 post-peer-review rewrite of proposed Boost.AFIO, a C++ library wrapping the advanced features of the filesystem intended for eventual ISO C++ standardisation. If you're the kind of library developer who likes building unusual low level concurrent algorithms using the very latest C++ 14-17 (proposed) features and testing them for time and space complexities, this is definitely your kind of talk.
Wednesday 7th September 2016: 7.27am. Link shared: Ten days exactly to go before I depart for CppCon 2016 in Seattle! I am very glad to report that the code I am presenting (link to talk is below) finally passed the last of its unit tests yesterday, so it is finally debugged and I have some performance benchmarks. As expected, this new filesystem locking algorithm is a full order of magnitude (10x-20x) faster than anything else in AFIO v2 that was presented at ACCU 2016 last April.
