About this Episode

After a break of a few weeks we're back with an episode actually recorded on March 12th (when Phil had a cold). We chat with Gor Nishanov about Coroutines, which were just adopted into the draft standard for C++20.

We talk about what Coroutines are, why recent talks may have been given the wrong impression (as they focused on a library writer's perspective,) what is going into the standard (the core language features) and what is not (library support, performance guaranteed by construction) and why.

We also look at Microsoft's open-sourcing of the Calculator source code - and the bugs contained therein - as well as some follow-up on contracts.
