A Journey Into Modern DevOps and Continuous Integration in C and C++ Projects


C and C++ continue to be used and favored by many developers in all industries. However, when compared to other languages, C/C++ developers face greater challenges that include: long build times, diverse platforms and ecosystems, different build systems, binary compatibility, code inlining and embedding, and lack of standard for OSS.

This featured DevOps.com article takes a look at these challenges, outlines the required modern DevOps practices and tools, and demonstrates how they can be solved with a typical case study that uses Conan and JFrog Artifactory.
