CppCast welcomes CLion: a year in review

CppCast, a famous podcast for C++ developers hosted by Rob Irving and Jason Turner, welcomes back Anastasia Kazakova, CLion Product Marketing Manager. Last time we met a year ago, before CLion 1.0 was launched, and talked about CLion’s goals, hopes and expectations. Now we meet again to overview CLion’s first year. Some topics discussed in this episode include:

  • Main changes and events for CLion and the C++ team in JetBrains over this year.
  • General trends in how CLion’s features are used.
  • Discussion of CLion’s user base.
  • Any option to get CLion licenses for free?
  • What’s next on the roadmap?
  • CLion as an IDE not only for C and C++. What are other languages and options are there?
  • Some technical details on how CLion works with CMake and future plans for other build systems.
  • CLion’s C++ parser discussion, along with clang as an option.
