Writing correct C++ is hard. Period. Full stop. Even if a small change to a simple 2,000-line program compiles, has tests, and passes the tests, the code might still be broken. When the code spans hundreds of thousands of files across many different projects, making sure your change is safe is orders of magnitude harder. This talk is about all of the things that make that problem manageable for a Facebook engineer to tackle.
Mark Isaacson is a Software Engineer at Facebook, where he works on improving the developer experience for all C++ programmers at Facebook. Mark is the author of the tech blog "Modern Maintainable Code" that tries to educate folks about properties of maintainable code and effective program design. Mark has a background in teaching and has been giving tech talks for several years now, most of which can be found on his blog. Website: http://modernmaintainablecode.com
