    This blog post was written by an Eastern European so I'm afraid you'll have to find another ethnicity to blame for Rockstar's failures.

  • ucrt

    Looks like it has a reason: https://github.com/huangqinjin/ucrt/blob/a52376780e631fb0e5d520748addb03651aef0b5/stdio/input.cpp#L95-L98

  • JetBrains Dev Survey

    What’s up with the C++ ecosystem in 2023? JetBrains Developer Ecosystem Survey 2023 has given us many interesting insights. The Embedded (37%) and Games (39%) industries are already working with C++20, developers are incorporating static analysis in their CI, and ChatGPT usage among coders is flourishing.

  • pysimdjson

    Python bindings for the simdjson project.

    I don't think JSON is really the problem - parsing 10MB of JSON is not so slow. For example, using Python's json.load takes about 800ms for a 47MB file on my system, using something like simdjson cuts that down to ~70ms.

  • simdjson

    Parsing gigabytes of JSON per second : used by Facebook/Meta Velox, the Node.js runtime, WatermelonDB, Apache Doris, Milvus, StarRocks

    I have never heard of its existence before but after just reading the GitHub page of simdjson and the statistics they provide (2.5GB/s) I wonder why it isn't the standard

  • Jansson

    C library for encoding, decoding and manipulating JSON data

    I don't see why something like Jansson wouldn't.

  • UIforETW

    User interface for recording and managing ETW traces

    That profiling method 😬 someone please tell them about UIforETW
