From the report:
Last November 24th we had the fourth edition of using std::cpp, our annual spanish conference on C++ for professional developers. The conference is a one-day free event held every year at University Carlos III of Madrid, in Leganés. We had around 200 registered attendees (most of them professional developers).
We would like to share some answers from the evaluation questionaries:
- 75% of attendees were professional developers, 14% were students, and 11% were academics.
- 92% declared they use regularly C++.
- The most popular version of C++ was C++11 (73%), followed by C++98/03 (63%) and C++14 (21%). Note that you could vote for more than one. However, no one declared to make use of any extension or TS.
- Most popular compiler was gcc (60%), followed by Microsoft (57%), and clang++ (14%).
- When we asked for domains a found a split among multiple sectors: telco (20%), aerospace/naval (11%), civil engineering (9%), bank/finance/insurance (7%), developer tools (7%), videogames (6%), research/academia (4%), transport (4%), industrial manufacturing (2%).
