This week, in a cpp.chat exclusive, we chat with Sean Baxter about Circle - the C++ compiler that he wrote. That’s a C++ compiler. That he wrote. Oh, and it does meta-programming in a way that we’re only dreaming of part of for C++23 or 26!
So what can it do, and what is it useful for? Why is Jon struggling to wrap his head around what Sean has achieved and can it really turn Twitter into code?
If you want to follow along screen shared segment, I've tried to embed screenshots in the podcast mp3 - or you can go to this point in the YouTube recording.
