Like last year, expect them about a month after the conference ends. We're making a special effort to make the daily keynote/plenary sessions available early.)

Better Code: Data Structures (YouTube)
by Sean Parent, CppCon 2015 day 3 keynoteThe standard library containers are often both misused and underused. Instead of creating new containers, applications are often structured with incidental data structures composed of objects referencing other object. This talk looks at some of the ways the standard containers can be better utilized and how creating (or using non-standard library) containers can greatly simplify code. The goal is no incidental data structures.

We hope posting these few highlights during and shortly following CppCon can help to let everyone in the worldwide C++ community share in the news and feel a part of the gathering here in the Seattle neighborhood this week. Even if you couldn't be here in person this year to enjoy the full around-the-clock technical program and festival atmosphere, we hope you enjoy this nugget in the video presentation.
