Welcome! We were already afraid there will be no meetup for us this month, but thanks to Mathieu will have a meetup in February with an exciting main topic! Thanks a lot to Paradox Interactive (https://www.paradoxinteractive.com/) for hosting this meetup! We are looking forward visiting this, for us, new location and learn more about a leading global publisher of strategy games for PC! OBS: Hard limit of 50 seats, please take your RSVP serious and keep the status up to date! The main topic for the evening: --- * Mathieu Ropert The State of Package Management in C++ Package management was considered one of the hottest and crucial topics in the last 2 years. In 2017, Bjarne Stroustrup himself said this was a something we needed to solve to keep students interested in C++. Where do we stand today, in 2019? Join me for a tour of the topic, including: * A look at which tools we currently have, with a focus on Conan and VCPKG * What challenges we still have to overcome * How you can make your software easier to package and reuse Mathieu is a French C++ expert working on (somewhat) historical video games. Decided to upgrade his compiler once and has been blogging about build systems ever since. Past speaker at CppCon, Meeting C++ and ACCU. Used to run the Paris C++ User Group. Currently lives in Sweden. --- Additional: --- Lightning talk by Stefan Petersen: Book review of "Real-Time C++, second edition" by Christopher Kormanyos. --- More details to come .... Väl mött!

I am very happy being able to announce this interesting and exciting program: 17:30: Doors open 18:00 - 18:15: Meet & Great, Intro 18:15 - 18:45: Fuzzing for developers 18:45 - 19:30: Meet & Eat 19:30 - 20:30: Modernizing Plex C++ toolchain with Clang and Conan. 20:30 - 21:00: Fade out The program in details: ----- Paul Dreik: Fuzzing for developers Fuzzing is a method for generating interesting inputs to programs. It is an important tool for finding security holes. Lots and lots of critical bugs have been found and mitigated using services like oss-fuzz. We will go through what the fundamental problems are and learn how to set up fuzzing for an example project as a complement to other testing. Paul is a senior C++ developer working as an independent consultant. He has a background in automatic control and robotics. His interests are software quality, security and mathematical programming. ----- ----- Tobias Hieta : Modernizing Plex C++ toolchain with Clang and Conan. This talk will walk you through how Plex modernized their C++ toolchain with the help of Conan dependency manager and the Clang compiler. The Plex Media Server ships on many different platforms and architectures and that created a lot of interesting problems. Tobias is the team lead for Developer tools at Plex, he is also the co-host of the Swedish programming podcast Kodsnack. ----- Väl mött!
