Workshop and Discussion Group

This month's informal meeting will be one week earlier than usual (the third Wednesday instead of the fourth Wednesday).

We'll host lightning talks, answer questions, share ideas and reviews of books, libraries, and tools and in general have a great discussion.

    I enjoyed the meeting. Will attend more in the future.

    Want to explore the potential features/implementation-concerns of a serialisation interface. The basic requirement is that users can wrap a structure in a serialisation structure, which will provide facities for (de)serialising their structure. The user need not define methods of or functions which accept their structure in order to (de)serialise.

    struct user_defined_t { int a; char *b; };
    cereal<user_defined_t> c_a(3, "asdf")
    char *buf = cereal.cerealise();

    Basic implementation details are that the constructor is a variadic template which unpacks its paramaters to an initialiser list. This initialiser list is used to initialise an internal instance of the template type (user_defined_t) and a lambda which is used to create the buffer.

    A couple of potential features
    * variable endianness
    * variable encoding

      Ah, I may be misunderstanding the use-case. I was assuming that cereal<user_defined_t­> would have all the same mutators and stuff as user_defined_t, so even though you initialized it with 3, it might contain 3.14 by the time you tried to .cerealise() it.
      Anyway. Tomorrow. :)

    I'll be there, with an at-least-half-assed lightning talk on RVO. I won't mind if there's so much other stuff going on that I don't get to present it, though. :)

      Amendment: a lightning talk on NRVO in particular. Dang, there's a lot of bizarre trivia I'm finding to cover...
