About CppCast

CppCast is the first podcast for C++ developers by C++ developers!

CppCast

From 2015 to 2022 CppCast had (almost) weekly conversations with C++ conference speakers, library authors, writers, ISO committee members and more!

In May 2022 on the 349th episode Rob and Jason announced the podcast would be going on an ‘indefinite hiatus’ after 7 years of regular episodes.

Rob and Jason can be reached on twitter at @robwirving and @lefticus.

Jason Turner

Jason Turner

Jason has been developing portable C++ since 2002. With very few exceptions, every line of code he has written since then has had to run on multiple platforms. He is an independent contractor and trainer focusing on cross-platform issues, utilization of C++ libraries from scripting languages and code quality assurance. He is the co-creator and maintainer of ChaiScript, a mature scripting language designed for modern C++. He is also the creator and curator of cppbestpractices.com an effort to gather the collective wisdom of the C++ community.

Contact Jason if you are interested in having on-site C++ training for your company.
