The term Dark Matter Developers was coined by Scott Hanselman in this blog post from 2012. In his post he defines Dark Matter Developers:
My coworker Damian Edwards and I hypothesize that there is another kind of developer than the ones we meet all the time. We call them Dark Matter Developers. They don’t read a lot of blogs, they never write blogs, they don’t go to user groups, they don’t tweet or facebook, and you don’t often see them at large conferences. Where are these dark matter developers online?
I was recently refreshing some of my C++ knowledge and came across Multiple Inheritance and Virtual Base Classes. They can be tricky concepts for C++ developers if not understood properly, so I wanted to write down my own explanation of these concepts.
A few weeks ago I posed the question: Does C++ need its own podcast? The poll results were pretty clear, I wasn’t the only C++ developer interested in a C++ podcast.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of recording an interview with Jon Kalb about his amazing work growing the C++ community and the episode is now live: http://cppcast.com/2015/01/jon-kalb-loves-the-cpp-community/
I’m really excited to have this first episode out and there will definitely be more to come. In the mean time I’d love to get feedback on show format, guest ideas, and anything else you can think of. Please send emails to feedback [at] cppcast [dot] com with any suggestions you may have.
