Hi! My name is Timur Doumler. I am a C++ developer specialising in audio and music technology and developer tools. I co-founded the music technology startup Cradle, where I served as CTO for 2.5 years, and I’m still involved in Cradle as an advisor and board member.
My current main job is Developer Advocate for C++ tools at JetBrains. Previously I worked there as a software engineer, developing the C++ frontend of the CLion IDE. Other past engineering jobs include Native Instruments (developing cross-platform libraries and working on Kontakt), and ROLI (working on JUCE, BLOCKS, and NOISE).
Apart from coding, I like doing community-facing work. I am currently serving as Conference Chair of the Audio Developer Conference, and I am co-hosting the monthly Audio Programmer Virtual Meetup. I tend to hang out on the #include<C++> Discord, where I’m one of the moderators. I also give talks at conferences and meeetups, but I will only attend one if it has a Code of Conduct in place.
I am an active member of the C++ standard committee, where I try to proxy the audio tech community as well as the needs of IDEs and other developer tools. Please let me know how we can make C++ better!
My pronouns are he/him.
