C++ Links #7

Welcome to new C++ Links - most important and useful articles, podcasts and videos that happen between 13th and 19th of October.

Today you will find links to all proposals that will be discussed in the upcoming Standard Committee meeting in San Diego, a video explaining why C++ is not an object-oriented programming language and many more!

  1. Video from the CopperSpice team - they show how to recognise and how to improve very old codebase, including changes not only in code but also in tooling:
