Aaron Turon explains Rust's core notion of “ownership” and shows how Rust uses it to guarantee thread safety, how Rust avoids some of the pitfalls of C++ without compromising on performance.
In this panel users of C++, Rust, and Go talk about how they picked their language of choice, what problems remain, what was impossible to do with VM-based languages and much more.
Paul King reviews some of the most useful of the Groovy built-in AST transformations. He talks about the internal workings of AST transformations and how to write your own.
Cédric Champeau explores the Groovy compiler. He discusses parsing, abstract syntax tree, type checking, type inference, bytecode and verifier.
Peter Sommerlad covers compile-time computations available in C++14: constexpr functions and constants, literal types, variable templates, variadic templates and what can be expected in the future.
Axel Naumann introduces the use of C++ for storing and analyzing petabytes of C++ objects at CERN, and more generally in High Energy Physics.
David Tanzer introduces Clojure and ClojureScript, discussing the language basics and some libraries useful for writing real applications.
Gil Tene provides an overview of JIT compiler optimization techniques and their impact on common market-open slowdown scenarios.
The panelists discuss the Scala compiler fork (typelevel.org): Is this a positive and natural outgrowth of a growing language or will this development cause irreparable rifts in the Scala community?
Elena Laskavaia explains how to write a simple C/C++ checker to find errors in code with Code Analysis Framework (codan) and the AST introspection APIs of the CDT.
Baruch Sadogursky and Fred Simon explain how to write AST transformations.
