abseil / C++ Tips of the Week edit / delete

Bite-sized advice on modern C++, from developers at Google. Feels much like the old C++ FAQ Lite entries. Worth a look for CMP201 students.

Abbreviated vs. Full-Word Identifier Names edit / delete

"We carried out a family of controlled experiments to investigate whether the use of abbreviated identifier names, with respect to full-word identifier names, affects fault fixing in C and Java source code. [...] Overall results suggested that there is no difference in terms of effort, effectiveness, and efficiency to fix faults, when source code contains either only abbreviated or only full-word identifier names."

C&C - Archives edit / delete

Lots of interesting articles introducing aspects of programming language design. CMP409 students should have a flip through this.

C&C - A Crash Course on ML Modules edit / delete

A really good description of Standard ML's module system (and OCaml, where it differs). I do like ML's modules, but wish the syntax and terminology was a bit friendlier...

50 Shades of Go: Traps, Gotchas, and Common Mistakes for New Golang Devs edit / delete

Mostly interesting to me for the concurrency problems.

Modern garbage collection – Mike’s blog edit / delete

A critical look at the tradeoffs in Go's GC. (Like their concurrency facilities, it ignores a lot of the advances in design in the late 70s.)

Some fairly specific archiving projects from CHM -- e.g. as much as they could collect about early Fortran compilers.

Undefined Behavior in 2017 – Embedded in Academia edit / delete

A really nice overview of undefined behaviour in C-family languages. Tempted to do a lecture on this for CMP201, although I suspect the students would find it rather depressing...

graydon2 | "What next?" edit / delete

"After memory safety, what do you think is the next big step for compiled languages to take?" Some interesting suggestions.
