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.
