C++-User-Group Treffen im Chaosdorf am Mi, 18.03.15

Am Mi. den 18. März trifft sich (wie jeden 3. Mittwoch im Monat) die C++ User-Group NRW und Interessierte zu einem Themenabend zu C++.

Special Edition! Undo presents on new ways to debug your C++ Code! There will be Pizza!

Talk Abstract:
Anyone who’s written in C++ or other compiled languages will have had to fix bugs. Julian will give a talk on Undo’s record and replay debugging technology that allows Linux software developers to record their C/C++ program’s execution, and then “wind the tape” back and forth in real-time. This gives a clear view of a program’s execution, allowing the root causes of bugs to be found with astonishing ease. Much of the guesswork and trial-and-error is removed, meaning that bugs that might otherwise have taken weeks to fix can now be fixed in minutes. UndoDB uses advanced optimization techniques to allow practical debugging of even very large and CPU-intensive programs, Through a series of demos Julian will give an in-depth look at the Undo technology and how it works in the two main products: UndoDB (for reversible debugging), and Live Recorder (for recording the execution of programs on any computer – e.g. an in-production failure at the customer site). There will be time for an interactive Q and A session at the end of the talk.


Julian Smith (Co-Founder & CTO Undo Software) holds a physics degree from Oxford University, and a Ph.D. in cognitive psychology from the University of Edinburgh. He has spent the subsequent years writing software professionally, with a focus on development tools and system-level programming.

Julian is a keen cyclist and an accomplished violin, viola and baroque violin player and plays in various chamber music groups, orchestras and a local folk/rock group.

Ab 19:15 Uhr beginnt das Treffen im Chaosdorf.
