Martin Hořeňovský joins Timur and Phil. Martin returns to talk about v3 of Catch2 and how it is different to v2. We also revisit the topic of random numbers and how Martin is still working on portable distributions and why that is important to testing and other domains.
Mateusz Pusz joins Phil and new guest co-host, Anastasia Kazakova. Mateusz talks to us about his physical units (and quantities) library, mp-units, why v2 is a complete redesign compared to the previous version, and how incorporating a system of quantities is so central to this new design.
Frances Buontempo joins Phil and returning guest co-host, Matt Godbolt. Frances talks to us about her new book on modern C++ as well as her the topic of her previous book on machine learning. We discuss the differences between LLM-based AI and more statistical approaches, as well as where random numbers fit into all this and the limitations of their current support in C++.
Abbas Sabra joins Phil and Timur. Abbas talks to us about static analysis, the challenges - and benefits - of analysing C++ code, and a new feature from Sonar that can scan public repos with zero config.
Mark Gillard joins Timur and guest co-host Jason Turner. Mark talks to us about reflection, SIMD, and his library soagen, a structure-of-arrays generator for C++.
