Thank you so much for stopping by!

We are a Software Services and Consultancy focusing on supporting grassroots improvement of the C and C++ Standards as well as the open source ecosystem through our work and services.

We develop open-source software and contribute to the C and C++ Standards Committee to help make the world of C++ better for everyone! With ThePhD (fondly known as Derp or ThePhantomDerpstorm) helping us, our biggest accomplishments are sol2 and itsy.bitsy libraries, as well as the std::embed and std::out_ptr proposals.

Your contributions go directly to supporting our next newest initiative, Text and Unicode, and to remind the Committee that there are people outside of large multinational corporations that want to use, adopt, and progress with C++!

Again, thank you so much for your help, and we can't wait to help all of us into a better C++!

$234 of $480 per month
If we hit $480 per month, I'll open up a vote where -- as a patron -- you'll get a chance to pick a feature for C++ Standardization and have me work on the paper proposing or advancing that feature, one for every Standards Meeting!
