> Is anyone using avro C++?
I'm been using it with some success, however, I've only been using schemas that I have written and with DataFiles that I have written, so I haven't had compatibility issues. That said, the errors messages avrogencpp produces are a bit cryptic, so trouble shooting its problems are not at all straight forward.

(I tried using the java tools to turn the avdl into json with some hand editing of the json and that failed).
