Guests

Anastasia Kazakova

Anastasia Kazakova

A C/C++ fan since university, Anastasia has been creating real-time *nix-based systems and pushing them to production for 8 years. She has a passion for networking algorithms (especially congestion problems and network management protocols) and embedded programming, and believes in good tooling. Now she is a part of the JetBrains team working as a Product Marketing Manager for CLion, a cross-platform C/C++ IDE.

Phil Nash

Phil Nash

Phil has spent the last year and a half doing things that might sound interesting for the next time he’s interviewed on CppCast. He might have overdone it. Aside from that he’s most commonly known as the original author of the test framework, Catch2. He’s been in or around C++ since the early 90s, but started coding in 1981 on a ZX-81 that he borrowed for six months. He’s worked in many domains, including finance and mobile and is now developer advocate for C++ and Swift tools at JetBrains.

Staffan Tjernström

Staffan Tjernström

Staffan has been busting latency issues since the mid-80’s. These days he’s a C++ subject expert at Susquehanna International Group, where he spends his days working in an MSVC environment using Powershell and emacs.

Matthew von Arx

Matthew von Arx

Matthew von Arx has been working in Satellite Communications for 9 years, and has always had a focus on Software Engineering. This has grown into a passion for C++.

Tony Wasserka

Tony Wasserka

Tony Wasserka is a freelance software developer based in Berlin, Germany. He works on low-level software like operating systems (kernels and drivers alike) and firmware for embedded systems. His main interest is using strong type-safety and zero-cost abstractions to write software for resource-constrained and timing-sensitive applications with good performance with better robustness and correctness than with other approaches. His tool of choice for this is usually C++, with Rust being an increasingly viable alternative.

Jens Weller

Jens Weller

Jens Weller is the organizer and founder of Meeting C++. Doing C++ since 1998, he is an active member of the C++ Community. From being a moderator at c-plusplus.de and organizer of his own C++ User Group since 2011 in Düsseldorf, his roots are in the C++ Community. Today his main work is running the Meeting C++ Platform (conference, website, social media and recruiting). His main role has become being a C++ evangelist, as this he speaks and travels to other conferences and user groups around the world.

Anny Gakh

Anny Gakh

Anny Gakh is a software developer who is currently completing her undergrad at UBC, Vancouver. She has previously interned at Monexa, Nvidia and Mozilla.

Borislav Stanimirov

Borislav Stanimirov is mainly a C++ programmer but als enjoys learning new langauges. He has written a lot of Ruby and likes playing with Nim, D, lua, MoonScript, Haskell, Lisp, Mathematica, and many more. The languages he dislikes include Java, perl, PHP, Pascal, and Basic.

Ezra Chung

Ezra Chung

Ezra Chung is a recent graduate working as a Software Engineer for the Simulation Team at FlightSafety International. A C++ enthusiast; enjoys teaching modern C++ via online C++ communities such as Slack, Discord, and IRC. Volunteer for C++Now 2018, CppCon 2018, and CppCon 2019.
