The last 3 code reviews I have done have been denied.

Step 1) Pull the branch
Step 2) Load into IDE
Step 3) Look at all the warnings and clang-tidy issues that have been introduced.
Step 4) Deny pull request with a shitload of comments about the warnings and other clang-tidy issues.


How many times will I have to do this before the developers get it through their head that at a bare minimum, your code shouldn't introduce more warnings in the god drat code?


Edit*

Also, if I see any god drat char *'s or char arrays that aren't 100% absolutely necessary, I will flip my poo poo.
We spent several weeks cleaning out the "Treat C++ like C with classes" code to update it to modern C++17, I will not be throwing C poo poo back in there.

I am in the throws of bringing up a 50,000+ line of code C++ project to modern C++ standards. Anybody who is trying to modernize a C++ project should be using CLion, it has clang-tidy and ClangD built in, making the transition wayyyyyyy smoother.

C++17 is cool and good. It makes C++ drat near a higher level language.

I used Buildroot to create a container for a gigantic pile of poo poo python2 application our company has that uses a combination of:

- QT4
- MongoDB
- Socat
- 52 separate libraries, most of which are just "backport this to python2"

It took me 3 days to get it running on CentOS7.
It took me another week to clean out all the PEP8 warnings.
It took me another week to get it going in BuildRoot.

Why Buildroot? Because I don't want that poo poo spread out on my system. This is the first time I have used BuildRoot + Docker, and it works pretty well!

Modern C++ >= 14 is cool and good and makes C++ almost a higher level language.

If the C++ is hard to read, it's probably because of either:
1) A garbage programmer who is probably afraid of function pointers and uses threads with callbacks for everything
2) A C programmer who treats C++ as just C with classes and doesn't use it like a modern language.
3) A P-Lang developer who never learned C and tries to treat C++ as a pure P-Lang.

You need a C++ guy who knows C and P-Langs, and has embraced C++ as a modern language.

Either way, modern C++ is cool and good.

Inheritance is cool and good, but can get you into trouble quickly.
If you go more than 2 levels of inheritance, you need to take a good long look at your code and probably refactor it.

yeah, it's a very different approach. my main worry is ambiguity, it seems like you could easily have two different types that each have a "foo" method with the same input/return types but wildly different semantics. it's like duck typing.

You sure can! C langs allow you to easily shoot yourself in the foot, in exchange for low level fuckery and other neat poo poo you can do.

DONT THREAD ON ME posted:

yeah i believe that unless you're wrapping some framework class you should generally limit yourself to 1 level of inheritance.

Good man.

I guess I am a outlier in my programming tranining for sure.

I started with C, my first project was board bring-up for a TI processor running on Kernel 2.6.32-17

I was taught by a awesome EE who has been programming mostly in ASM/C/C++ for 30 years and taught me to be incredibly pragmatic.

He instilled on me:

1) Be pragmatic. If your code is clever, it's probably not a good thing.
2) It's all just memory.
3) Stick to conventions.
4) All programming languages are tools. Some better than others. (When discussing mainstream languages, poo poo like Brainfuck not-withstanding)

He's still a good friend to this day.

It's a bunch of EEs and poo poo and like they can do C and know how to design and build hardware and whatnot but uh


There's no testing for software, unless it manually done, there's the aforementioned PLM abuse, they barely use an issue tracker. There will be references to tickets in the SCM and PLM software but clearly they're not linked in any capacity. Builds are done manually, using black magic some batch scripts and a really old version of CodeWarrior to produce SREC files.

I want to unfuck all this but I'm an intern so I'll just take this as a very valuable lesson about asking about their Process in an interview and suffer for the next 4-5 months

e: actually not sure how much CodeWarrior is needed since you apparently use .exes to build???

Depending on how "new" it is, it might be based off of Eclipse, at which point you can just download Eclipse and use CW's compilers. It's a MUCH nicer upgrade.
