A European Vacation

It’s been oh-so-quiet here! I’ve been away on a long European holiday, visiting Iceland, United Kingdom, France and the Czech Republic. I’ve had a great time, but haven’t had as much time as I’d like otherwise to work on Compiler Explorer.

Me, explaining something
Explaining some of my views on C++

While in the Czech Republic, visiting the unimaginibly beautiful Prague, I was invited to speak at Avast, the anti-virus company. They have an amazing office and working environment: a music room (and studio), couches everywhere, great food, pinball machines, golf putting courses…you name it! Lovely folks too. In particular, huge thanks to Hana Dusíková for inviting me, and arranging everything and generally making it a pleasure to speak there. She’s now running a regular C++ meet up, which if you’re in Prague you should sign up for straight away!

The talk was videoed and is on YouTube. The sound quality isn’t the best, but hopefully it is watchable enough.

The vacation is already seeming a blur. And tomorrow my break between jobs is over: I start first thing at Coinbase in Chicago! I can’t wait!
