Had a wonderful experience at work before the holidays:
I was doing some tooling work on desktop, that needs to interface to what runs on the target and wow, is C++ a wonderful language, when you can just use libraries and strings and not worry about them allocating. Just throwing in a constructor if things can't work.
The code was so elegant and using Conan just worked, without having to set up toolchain files as and profiles.
Oh well, I'll remember that feeling for a while.
Will be interesting who will be the new face of #qt.
I wish Lars Knoll the best of luck and thanks for the contributions, it's not always easy to make open source people happy about a commercially licensed product.

Keynote: Growing Better Programmers - Guy Davidson - ACCU 22
I've written a paper on how C++ compiler diagnostics could be improved.
It starts with a language-agnostic survey of the state of the art in production compilers and academic literature, so should be interesting even if you don't use C++!
Tomorrow, 8am PT is the last part of my series with @TartanLlama@twitter.com all about C++!
Come join us for a bit of a show and tell as we talk through some of the different types of things you can build with C++
