Sometimes programming with mutexes gets too complicated and messy. Maybe you need to meet a new friend — the Event Loop pattern.
General-purpose programming language. It has imperative, object-oriented and generic programming features, while also providing facilities for low-level memory manipulation
So you want to learn more about game engines and write one yourself? That's awesome! To help you on your journey, here are some recommendations of C++ libraries and dependencies that will help you hit the ground running.
An example of using Electron + React JS and a native ffmpeg addon to access a webcamera
This guide may be helpful to someone who is trying to find a way
to work with Electron if they need to use a c++ library or code
I was looking for a more realistic example than a simple 'hello world' and i didn't succeed
Here are the links in advance:

So let me share my experience...
If you regularly use a static code analyzer, you can save time on guessing why the new code doesn't work as planned. Let's look at another interesting error — the function broke during refactoring, and no one noticed that. No one — except for PVS-Studio that can automatically scan the project and email the report to us.
We are often asked whether we send bug reports to developers of open-source projects. The answer is yes. More than that— we sometimes track the progress. This article is about one of the cases when this habit prevented a sloppy bug fix.
In various discussions, we have already commented on how the PVS-Studio C and C++ module works with memory. Now it's time to make a small article from this comment.
Operating systems are a kind of software where code quality is critical. This time the PVS-Studio analyzer checked MuditaOS. So let's take a look at what the static analyzer found in this open-source OS.
Readers surely have favorite websites and blogs about C++. Hopefully, today your collection will grow.
Flipper Zero is an open-source multi-tool for geeks and penetration testers. It so happened that the Flipper Zero project and the PVS-Studio analyzer crossed paths. A philosophical question: should we check the project, if the project developers have already started fixing errors? Let's try to do this.
It's freezing outside, everyone has already decorated the Christmas tree and bought tangerines. New Year is coming! So, it's time to meet the Top 10 interesting bugs found by the PVS-Studio C++ analyzer in 2021.
We often check large projects because it's easier to find bugs there. What if we try PVS-Studio on a small project? In this article we analyze Blend2D — a library for vector 2D graphics. Let's look at what we found.
It's no secret that large projects have fascinating errors. It's not just "the larger the codebase is – the more errors we can find". It's also a known fact that the density of errors grows along with the codebase. That's why we love checking large projects — to treat you with a variety of "yummy" and tricky errors and typos. Besides, it's always interesting to search through a huge project with lots of dependencies, legacy code, and other stuff.
Today I'm moving away from this tradition. I decided to take a small project and see what PVS-Studio can find there. I chose Blend2D — branch master, commit c484790.
We dust off the irregular series of articles about the Chromium project check. Let's look at the code quality in the latest Chromium release and check the new features of the PVS-Studio analyzer.
This article investigates why the standard library needs a way to deduce a common type, how it is implemented and how it works.
In different programming languages, the behavior of virtual functions differs when it comes to constructors and destructors. Incorrect use of virtual functions is a classic mistake. Developers often use virtual functions incorrectly. In this article, we discuss this classic mistake.
It's cool when enthusiastic developers create a working clone of a famous game. It's even cooler when people are ready to continue the development of such projects! In this article, we check TheXTech with PVS-Studio. TheXTech is an open implementation of the game from the Super Mario universe.
One of the mechanisms of static analysis is method annotations of popular libraries. Annotations provide more information about functions during errors detecting. CARLA is an impressive open-source project in C++ that helped us implement this mechanism to our analyzer. Subsequently, the simulator became a test-target for the improved PVS-Studio static analyzer.
RPCS3 is an interesting project that emulates the PS3 console. It is actively evolving. Recently we heard the news that the emulator learned how run all the games from the console's catalog. That's a good excuse to analyze the project. We'll see which errors remained after new fixes were added to the project.
Protocol Buffers is a very popular, cool, and high-quality product that is mostly developed by Google. This is a good challenge for the PVS-Studio static code analyzer. Finding at least something is already an achievement. Let's give it a shot.
We often check retro games. In our company, many developers like to find interesting projects for themselves. They feel nostalgic when they're studying these projects. But we need to run retro games on something, right? This time we checked a project that helps to run old games on modern hardware.
The PVS-Studio developers often check open-source projects and write articles about that. Sometimes, when writing an article, we come across interesting situations or epic errors. Of course, we want to write a small note about it. This is one of those cases.
