Compiler Explorer is a well-known website for exploring C++ code and the output of the compiler. However, it contains many features that you may not be aware of.

In this talk, we'll explore some of the newer features of Compiler Explorer (and revisit some old ones you may not be aware of), and see why they're useful. There will be live demos of each feature.

Did you know, for example, you can supply input to programs you execute? Or that you can see a Control Flow Graph of your program? Or even emulate a BBC Micro?

I'm a C++ developer who's passionate about the seemingly opposite goals of good, readable code and high performance code. I love taking the lid off and looking underneath, be it the compiler, the operating system, or even the silicon that runs everything.

By day I write software for quantitative trading company Aquatic. By night I hack on hobby projects ranging from emulating old computers in your browser to compiler exploration tools.
