October 2016 ISO C Meeting Report

Trip Report: October 2016 WG14 Meeting

In October 2016, I attended the WG14 (C language committee) meeting in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The meeting was hosted by the Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) at the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). We had 25 representatives from 18 organizations in attendance, including CERT, Cisco, IBM, INRIA, Intel, LDRA, Oracle, Perennial, Plum Hall, Siemens, and the University of Cambridge. It was a productive four days spent on two major areas:

  • Work on C11 defect reports aimed at the upcoming C11 Technical Corrigendum (TC) expected to be finalized in 2017. This will be the last revision of C11 to be published. The next revision of C will be a “major” version that is for the time being referred to as C2X.
  • Review of proposals for the next revision of C, C2X. To meet the TC 2017 schedule some C11 defects will have to be deferred to C2X. The C2X charter is in N2086.

Below is a list of some of the interesting C2X proposals the group discussed.

It’s a wrap! dotnetConf 2016 Japan

If you are not already familiar with it, dotnetConf 2016 was an online event about .NET, and it was announced at this event that .NET Core RTM would be released at 6/27, at Red Hat Summit in San Francisco.

There are several .NET meetups called dotnetConf.local, of which dotnetConf 2016 Japan is one such event. I had the pleasure of giving a session about .NET Core on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

This event was held with the cooperation of Japan C# User Group (JCUG), Japan Xamarin User Group(JXUG), Microsoft MVPs and many .NET developers. Ιt was raining at that day, but lots of .NET developers came to watch the live streaming take place — live.

 

The recorded session is available on youtube, but the almost session is Japanese. If you happen to speak Japanese, then watch away! But if you are looking for english sessions, you’ll find one at (2:52:00~3:38:00) in the recording below.

Here are the sessions that were given and recorded, and some comments about each one. All the session speakers are pioneers for .NET Core, and they absolutely love .NET. I’m thankful to be a part of this group, and to have been offered the chance to speak. Stay tuned to the Red Hat Developers blog, as I’m going to follow up with materials from my sessions, and write more articles in this blog that cover various topics about .NET technologies

It’s a wrap! Thank you TDC São Paulo 2016

It’s amazing how you can have the feeling of being home when you arrive at some special places: people you love, food you love, and the warming sensation of being welcome. Without any doubt we from Red Hat Developers can assure that TDC São Paulo, with this amazing developer community, feels like home.

From July 5th to July 9th we had the companion of more than 4800 developers at Anhembi Morumbi University, venue of the The Developer’s Conference (TDC) São Paulo. We’re particularly proud of having accomplished the mission of empowering developers by sharing our knowledge with more than 13 sessions presented by different speakers in the Microservices, Speakers to Speakers, .NET, Cloud Computing, DevOps, Ruby, Java EE, Java, Software Architecture, Education, Python and Python4Kids tracks.

Red Hat also had the opportunity of having Edson Yanaga, Wellington Lopes, and Bruno Rocha as Track Leads of the Microservices, DevOps Java, Cloud Computing, Education and Python tracks.

One of the key points that we learned is that developers love Open Source. Being the largest Open Source company in the world, Red Hat is very dear to developers in the Brazilian community! Of course the swag helped, and we had dozens of developers in line every day at our booth to talk to our staff (ops, or to get our amazing swag). And we might probably think that our t-shirt was very well received, as we could see a lot of the attendees wearing them with proud during the conference.

A very special thanks to the Red Hat staff at TDC São Paulo: Andrea Carmona, Bruno Rocha, Eder Ignatowicz, Edson Yanaga, Guilherme Gomes, John Wendell, Ricardo Martinelli, and Wellington Lopes. We’re absolutely sure that the attendees loved your presence there!

On TDC’s last day we also had the opportunity to give some yoyos to the kids: small kids, big kids and adult kids too! Maybe they’ll spend some time learning some cool yoyo tricks instead of just chasing Pokémons outside… Or maybe not.

You can also check below the interviews that Edson Yanaga and Ricardo Martinelli de Oliveira gave for the NightHacking website while at TDC São Paulo:

Red Hat at the ISO C++ Standards Meeting (June 2016, Oulu): Library

The recent WG21 meeting in Oulu, Finland, was an especially busy one for the Library Working Group. Every day was spent working through the list of proposals intended for inclusion in C++17, and we also had three “evening” sessions that ran well past the evening (until nearly midnight, although the sun was still up to trick us into working late).

This post describes what I think are the most important library features that were reviewed and approved for inclusion in C++17. As usual, see Jason and Torvald’s posts for news from the Core and Parallelism & Concurrency groups. As Jason explained, the main goal of the Oulu meeting was to finalize the content of the Committee Draft (CD) for C++17. The Library Working Group started the meeting with a huge number of papers intended for inclusion in the CD, and we managed to complete the review of almost all of them.

Brace yourselves! TDC São Paulo is coming with Red Hat Developers

Red Hat Developers at TDC São Paulo 2016

Just like winter, The Developer’s Conference (TDC) and the Red Hat Developers group are arriving at São Paulo from July 5th to July 9th, 2016. We are all very excited to meet one of the largest development conferences in Brazil (if not the largest) that encompasses a whole set of developers from a myriad of different communities. It doesn’t matter the technology, chances are you’ll find your peers at São Paulo in this mild winter (and we’re sure that for many outsiders, it feels like summer: temperatures this week will reach up to 28ºC or 83ºF).

This year we’re going to have the largest Red Hat presence ever at TDC, with many Red Hatters as track leads and a dozen of talks presented by Red Hat engineers. And of course Red Hat developers is sponsoring the event with thousands of swag to give away (but hurry up if you want some). Please be welcome to visit our booth and chat a bit with our staff and engineers that will be more than happy to assist you in anything related to Red Hat technologies.

Check out what Red Hat will be delivering on TDC São Paulo:

Thank you The Developer’s Conference Florianópolis and DevCamp for receiving us!

From May 10th to May 14th we arrived at Florianópolis (with a short travel to Campinas) to do what we love the most: talk to developers. We from Red Hat Developers had an amazing time with the developer community gathered together at both The Developer’s Conference (TDC) Florianópolis and DevCamp.

Red Hat delivered a lot of great content to the audience, with speakers presenting dozens of talks in the Java EE, Java, Cloud Computing, Architecture, DevOps and .NET tracks. Congratulations and thank you to George Gastaldi, Eder Ignatowicz, Edson Yanaga, Ricardo Martinelli de Oliveira and Filippe da Costa Spolti for sharing your experience and expertise with 4200+ developers at Florianópolis and 700+ developers at Campinas!

The thing that most amazed us? The massive presence of developers interested to talk with Red Hat engineers at our booth. We had a lot of people interested in DevOps, Containers, OpenShift, Microservices, Wildfly Swarm, Forge and Drools. Thanks to this enthusiastic crowd we were able to earn an incredible achievement: they formed a huge line on the Expo Hall in front of the Red Hat booth and we ran out of swag on the first 30 minutes of the first day of the conference! We guess they loved our talk. Or our swag. Or both!
