C++ Weekly Episode 115: Compile Time ARM Emulator—Jason Turner

Episode 115 of C++ Weekly.

Compile Time ARM Emulator

by Jason Turner

About the show:

This episode of C++ Weekly demonstrates a compile time ARM CPU emulator using C++17 constexpr. No special tricks were necessary to accomplish this feat, merely following a rule of "constexpr everything that is reasonable." The code is portable and currently compiles with GCC and Clang in about 2 seconds for simple compile-time test cases.

by Rob Irving and Jason Turner

About the interviewee:

Phil has spent the last year and a half doing things that might sound interesting for the next time he’s interviewed on CppCast. He might have overdone it. Aside from that he’s most commonly known as the original author of the test framework, Catch2. He’s been in or around C++ since the early 90s, but started coding in 1981 on a ZX-81 that he borrowed for six months. He’s worked in many domains, including finance and mobile and is now developer advocate for C++ and Swift tools at JetBrains.

About the interviewee:

Kate Gregory has been using C++ since before Microsoft had a C++ compiler, and has been paid to program since 1979. She loves C++ and believes that software should make our lives easier. That includes making the lives of developers easier! She'll stay up late arguing about deterministic destruction or how C++ these days is not the C++ you remember.

Kate runs a small consulting firm in rural Ontario and provides mentoring and management consultant services, as well as writing code every week. She has spoken all over the world, written over a dozen books, and helped thousands of developers to be better at what they do. Kate is a Microsoft Regional Director, a Visual C++ MVP, an Imagine Cup judge and mentor, and an active contributor to StackOverflow and other StackExchange sites. She develops courses for Pluralsight, primarily on C++ and Visual Studio. Since 2014 she was Open Content Chair for CppCon, the largest C++ conference ever held, where she also delivered sessions.
