Fortunatly Markus jumped in to give a talk in October.


While native nodejs modules are nothing new and web based GUIs are getting used in domains that were considered reserved to native non garbage collected languages, as the recent SpaceX spacecraft control UIs for example, little knowledge seems to be shared about the pitfalls and required learnings for actual scaled down application development in this mixed environment.

This talk focuses on the learnings and code based on a small real productive project which uses C++ for USB device control and core application logic combined with react and electron for responsive, default good looking GUIs as presentation layer. From general project setup and build structure, encountered challenges, to needed and recommended C++ patterns, C++20 outlook, up to JavaScript i.e. web ideas that might be a worthy consideration for future library and language development. Unpleasant but solved surprises included.

We will try to use Goto Meeting again. You will get the chance to ask your questions directly through chat or voice.
