Preparing the C++11 Library AFIO for Boost Peer Review

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Boost C++ libraries have a well deserved reputation for excellence, and the prospect of contributing to them can be a bit overwhelming. My talk will focus on demystifying the process of porting a preexisting library to Boost through illustrative examples of my experiences preparing AFIO, the first C++11-only Boost Library to enter peer review, during 2013's Google Summer of Code. Because AFIO’s pre-Boost codebase was entirely C++11, many of these examples should highlight issues facing developers wanting to backport modern C++, and also show one possible set of solutions to those issues. From internal compiler errors to tackling the Boost build system, the process will be revealed, and hopefully become less daunting as the problems I encountered and their solutions are presented.
