cppcon-117.PNGRegistration is now open for the C++ event of 2015! Announced today at cppcon.org:

CppCon 2015 Registration Open

CppCon 2015: September 21-25, 2015 = 5 days x ~6 tracks

Pre-conference C++11/14 boot camp: September 19-20, 2015

Like last year, registration is being kept affordable -- Early Bird is $845 for the entire week-long event, and student registrations will also be available. In addition, this year there's also an optional "pre-conference C++11/14 boot camp" class for people who are newer to modern C++ and want extra training to get up to speed for two solid days before CppCon itself begins so they can get the most out of the week-long event.

From the announcement:

Registration is now open for CppCon 2015 to be held September 20-25, 2015 at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue, Washington, USA. The conference will start with the keynote by Bjarne Stroustrup titled “Writing Good C++14”.

CppCon is the annual, week-long face-to-face gathering for the entire C++ community. The conference is organized by the C++ community for the community. You will enjoy inspirational talks and a friendly atmosphere designed to help attendees learn from each other, meet interesting people, and generally have a stimulating experience. Taking place this year in the beautiful Seattle neighborhood and including multiple diverse tracks, the conference will appeal to anyone from C++ novices to experts.

What you can expect at CppCon:

  • “Modernize Your C++” New this year! An optional two day class for getting up to speed with C++11/14.
  • Invited talks and panels: The CppCon keynote by Bjarne Stroustrup will start off a week full of insight from some of the world’s leading experts in C++. Still have questions? Ask them at one of CppCon’s panels featuring those at the cutting edge of the language.
  • Presentations by the C++ community: What do embedded systems, game development, high frequency trading, and particle accelerators have in common? C++, of course! Expect talks from a broad range of domains experts focused on practical C++ techniques, libraries, and tools.
  • Lightning talks: Get informed at a fast pace during special sessions of short, less formal talks. Never presented at a conference before? This is your chance to share your thoughts on a C++-related topic in an informal setting.
  • Evening events and “unconference” time: Relax, socialize, or start an impromptu coding session.

CppCon’s goal is to encourage the best use of C++ while preserving the diversity of viewpoints and experiences. The conference is a project of the Standard C++ Foundation, a not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to support the C++ software developer community and promote the understanding and use of modern, standard C++ on all compilers and platforms.

If you're interested in C++, be sure to attend CppCon this September. Early Bird registration is open until July 10.
