Book review: C++17 Quick Syntax Reference: A Pocket Guide to the Language, APIs and Library

I work on a day-to-day basis on a big project that has many developers with different C++ level. Scott Meyers wrote a wonderful book on modern C++ (that I still need to review one day, especially since there is a new Effective Modern C++), but it is not for beginners. So I’m looking for that rare book with modern C++ and an explanation of good practices.

Book review: Getting Started with LLVM Core Libraries

LLVM has always intrigued me. Actually, I always thought about one day writing a compiler. But it was more a challenge than a requirement for any of my works, private or professional, so never dived into it. The design of LLVM was also very well thought, and probably close to something I would have had liked to create.

So now the easiest is just to use LLVM for the different goals I want to achieve. I recently had to write clang-tidy rules, and I also want to perhaps create a JIT for Audio Toolkit and the modeling libraries. So lots of reasons to look at LLVM.

Writing custom checks for clang-tidy

I started taking a heavier interest in clang-tidy a few months ago, as I was looking at static analyzers. I found at the time that it was quite complicated to work on clang internal AST. It is a wonderful tool, but it is also a very complex one. Thankfully, the cfe-dev mailing list is full of nice people.

I also started my journey in the LLVM/clang land with the help of this blog post.

Compile last Audio Toolkit on Bela with Clang

More than a year ago, I started playing with the Bela board. At the time, I had issues compiling Audio ToolKit with clang. The issue was that the gcc shipped with the Debian image the BeagleBoard used was too old and didn’t fully support C++11. The one that ships now is GCC 6, which is even C++14 compliant. Meaning that everything is available to build Audio Toolkit with Python support.

Announcement: Audio TK 2.3.0

ATK is updated to 2.3.0 with major fixes and code coverage improvement (see here). Lots of bugs were fixed during that effort and native build on embedded platforms was also fixed.

CMake builds on Linux don’t have to be installed before Python tests have to be ran. SIMD filters are now also easier to implement.

Book review: Python for Finance: Analyze Big Financial Data

Recently, I moved to the finance industry. As usually when I start in a new domain, I look at the Python books for it. And Python for Finance from Yves Hilpisch is one of the most known ones.
