If you have a question about this talk, please contact Jack Atkinson.

When much discussion is given to which C/C++ successor language we will eventually have to rewrite all our codebases in, Zig takes a different approach; Zig wants to coexist, so that instead of “rewrite it in Y”, we “maintain it with Zig”. In this talk, I will give an overview of the language, both as a systems programming language, and as a (C/C++) build system. I will focus on features that sets the language apart, how these enable optimal approaches in problem solving, and how you can use Zig today in your existing projects. I will also chart directions the language is developing in, and where and why these developments might be relevant for HPC .
