At this time, we are still using a completely separate intellisense compiler.   We will definitely be exploring that going forward though.

This is excellent news!  Congrats!  I’ve been curious about how you were going to make the ancient codebase flexible enough to handle current and future features as it’s been so hard to implement things like variadic templates.  Is the new parser now being used by intellisense?  Will this speed up IDE features like it?  I haven’t yet moved to 2017 at work, but now I’m loking forward to it!

Awesome video. Really interesting to hear about compiler intrinsics like two-phase name lookup. As a junior dev, this is the kind of stuff I love to learn about from bonafide experts.
