  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support

  • book

    The Rust Programming Language

    All C++ learning material should be forced to link to https://doc.rust-lang.org/book/, like how cigarette packs are forced to advertise nicotine addiction therapies :^)

    The Missing Semester of Your CS Education 📚

    I wish there was a good place to learn “the other parts” of C++, the build systems, using static analyzers, testing, dependency management, etc.

    I’m thinking something like MIT’s “missing semester” course which teaches the boots on the ground part of software like how to use Git.


    Maybe these resources exist for C++ and I just never found them.

    I think a lot of “modern” languages get this right by including these things from the start. The experience is so much better.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support. Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • rules_cuda

    I have yet to encounter problems with Cuda in our Bazel environment, but I don't have to maintain the Bazel rules, since our build infra team does that.

    I would think that rules like https://github.com/liuliu/rules_cuda should work for you in Bazel. (Tensorflow also uses Bazel, so I don't think that this should be a problem.)

  • hunter

    CMake driven cross-platform package manager for C/C++. (by cpp-pm)

  • CppCoreGuidelines

    The C++ Core Guidelines are a set of tried-and-true guidelines, rules, and best practices about coding in C++

    Proper use of the language is what https://isocpp.github.io/CppCoreGuidelines/CppCoreGuidelines is for. Before that, there were HICPP, JSF, MISRA, ISO/IEC TR 24772, NUREG 6463 etc.

    I have been writing in C++ for most of my professional career, I wrote company-wide guidelines, I still teach and consult. I absolutely agree that C++ is not going anywhere anytime soon. That being said, so is smoking. We can't just tell people not to smoke anymore, we live in a free society. But we really shouldn't drag more people in.

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.
