    A few weeks ago, the ISO C++ Committee met in Lenexa, Kansas to hash out the future of the C++ language, specifically for C++17. We're honored to speak to two (previously featured) Microsoft delegates to the committee -- Gabriel "Gaby" Dos Reis and Artur Laksberg -- who took the time to give us a very nice overview of the major things that went down at the meeting!

    P.S. We're trying out a new camera setup. Apologies for any distraction; think of it as a behind-the-scenes glimpse =P Also, bonus points if you can correctly identify next month's video topic and post its name in the comments with each letter shifted alphabetically by the position of your comment, e.g. if you are the fourth commenter "Superbowl" = "Wytivfsap". Bonus points redeemable for C++ pride and our thanks to you as a vigilant viewer ;)
