DevNation 2015 - Matt Newsome - Red Hat Enterprise Linux C++ Toolchains

As a C/C++ developer you want to be able to easily access and use supported versions of the latest and greatest tools, and you want to be able to get the most from those tools. In this session, we’ll look at the new features made available through the GCC compiler and friends in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 and Red Hat Developer Toolset (which puts the same tools in the hands of RHEL6 Developers). We'll look at new language standard support, optimizations, and other toolchain features in terms of both what they offer, and practical how-to guidance so that your development teams can get real world value from them. You’ll learn: - How Red Hat Developer Toolset offers newer releases of the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) for development on RHEL6 or RHEL7, optionally using the Eclipse Integrated Development Environment. - About the base GCC toolchain provided as part of RHEL7, its language standard support, key optimizations and other major new features- Practical guidance on how to use these features in real world application development to get high value for your customers - How your applications can be run and their performance analyzed on multiple releases without modification, carrying special libraries or changing the operating system runtime. - Where you can find more information on all these topics This solution-focused session will appeal to all C and C++ software developers and their managers. Content will include both high-level overviews and some deeper dives into feature specifics, and will include hands-on demonstrations of features in real world use. There will also be opportunities to ask questions about your specific concerns, with experts both in the room and available after the event.
