CodeRage 7 is a free C++-themed online developer conference by Embarcadero, running from December 10-12 (Mon-Wed). Many of the sessions are vendor-specific, focusing notably on C++Builder, but there are two notable sessions likely of interest to C++ developers on all platforms.
Bjarne Stroustrup will discuss the ISO C++11 standard, new language features, how C++11 builds on C++’s strengths, application portability, and C++’s ubiquitous presence in the markets.
