Welcome



Welcome: everyone else seems to be blogging so I thought I’d join them.

A little bit about myself. I’ve been working on compilers for longer than I care to remember (Pascal, Fortran, Modula-2, C and most recently C++). For the last 10 years I’ve been a developer on the Visual C++ compiler team: currently I am also the Microsoft representative on the ISO C++ committee WG21/X3J16.

The main focus of my current activities is C++ for the .NET platform.

I am hoping that I can use this blog to provide insights into the decision making and development process behind Visual C++: basically what we’re doing and why we’re doing it.

  1. Hi, enjoying your posts Jonathan. I have only just started on the road to writing a compiler (for Fortran), as a long time compiler writer it would be great to hear your thoughts on general compiler design etc.
