Adi Shavit: The C++ Bestiary
C++ is blessed with a plethora of gotchas, traps, caveats, pitfalls and footguns. From Abominable Types to Zombies, many shady characters lurk within the C++ dungeons. I will introduce you to some of these bountifully spawned beasts. I guarantee that everyone will learn at least a new thing.

He specializes in building cross-platform, high-performance software combined with high production quality and maintainable codebases. Adi is also the founder of the Core C++ users group in Israel.
Ákos Frohner: The Bazel Build System

We will also look at an example showing how it can be used with C++.
