I submitted a talk proposal to CppCon for this year’s conference but unfortunately I won’t be speaking. According to the reviewers, my abstract was too vague so I guess I’ll have to detail everything next time around.
I was going to talk about how to leverage C++14 for unit-testing legacy C code. You could use C to unit-test C code, but C++’s near-perfect backwards compatibility and its many, many features make writing the test code a lot easier.
I’m going to try to go to the conference anyway. Maybe I’ll get a lightning talk in presenting my Emacs package for C and C++ development.
