Cross-platform C++ development is challenging - let tools help!

Speaker: Marc Goodner

Audience level: Beginner | Intermediate


Writing high-quality error-free C++ code itself is a challenging task, let alone when having to juggle multiple platforms at the same time! In this session, we will talk about the many challenges in cross-platform C++ development and how tools can help: what options do I have if my production environment is different than my dev box? Can I be as productive when working with remote Linux machines? Is there any good C++ editor that works consistently on all platforms I work on? How can I efficiently build and debug CMake projects, and even get IntelliSense? How can I easily find and use open sourced libraries? Is there an easy way to write and run cross-platform tests? Come to this demo-heavy talk to see what Visual Studio 2017, Visual Studio Code, CMake, WSL, Vcpkg and more have to offer to make cross-platform C++ development much easier.
