The first day of the conference is over, and the highlight for me was definitely Bjarne talking about GSL and statically verifying that there are no dangling pointers.
I have to say I’m sceptical: if a C++ library solution can do the job, why does Rust exist? It sounds like too much of a free lunch to me, but I guess I’ll have to wait until the tool he talked about is ready and use it.
I also learned that I’m doing a lightning talk tomorrow on Emacs as a C++ IDE, which means that now I have to actually write that talk! I’ll have another blog up tomorrow about day 2.
