This talk will cover one of the Standard Committee's most anticipated new features: modules.

We'll start with the problems that modules is designed to address and the goals for the new feature and then cover the current status of the proposal.

In addition to efficiency and fast build times, the feature must address the architectural needs of very large codebases such as those found at companies like Bloomberg, Google, Facebook, A9, and Microsoft.

We'll discuss both the efficiency and architecture requirements in detail as well as providing insights into how the feature can meet these objectives and well as provide a migration path for existing code bases of every scale.
