ACCU 2017 Call for session—ACCU

The ACCU 2017 is now putting together its program, and they want you to speak on C++. The ACCU has a strong C++ track, though it is not a C++-only conference. If you have something to share, check out their

Call for Sessions

by the ACCU

From the article:

We have a long tradition of high quality sessions covering many aspects of software development, from programming languages (e.g. C, C++, C#, Go, Rust, Clojure, Erlang, Groovy, Haskell, Java, JavaScript, ECMAScript, Python, Ruby, Scala, etc.), and technologies (libraries, frameworks, databases, etc.) to subjects about the wider development environment such as testing, architecture and design, development process, analysis, patterns, project management, and softer aspects such as team building, communication and leadership. See the 2016 schedule for examples.

The Call for Sessions lasts 5 weeks and will close at midnight Friday 2016-11-18.

4th Spanish C++ conference using std::cpp 2016 (spanish)

At the 24th of November at Leganés in Madrid in Spain, for the fourth year in a row the one day event using std::cpp will gather professional developers in a series of talks devoted exclusively to C++.

  • Static and dynamic polymorphism in C++11: Flexibility versus performance?. J. Daniel Garcia (ARCOS Lab, University Carlos III), member of ISO C++ standards committee and associate professor in Computer Architecture.
  • Using templates in C++ to design and implement. Jose Caicoya (Hotel Beds), software developer with background in real-time systems, finance and, more recently, hotel reservation systems.
  • Distributed systems: How to connect your real-time applications. Jaime Martin (eProsima), developer of an open source DDS impelementation.

About using std::cpp

The using std::cpp event has been happening every year since 2013 in University Carlos III (Leganes, Madrid, Spain), where every year around 200 developers have gathered to share experiences in using C++ for professional software develpment.

The event is organized by ARCOS Lab (University Carlos III), a research group focused in applications of high performance computing to multiple domains. It is also sponsored by Indizen Technologies.

New “C++ Day” event in Italy (Italian only)

In a nutshell

The C++ Day 2016 is a special full-day event entirely dedicated to the C++ language, hosted in Florence (Italy), one of the most beautiful cities in the World. The event consists in technical sessions, interactive activities and networking.

Italian C++ professionals will speak (in Italian) on different C++ topics, including: C++17, Qt, API Design and Modern C++ for WinRT.

Other scheduled activities: C++ Unconference, C++ Coding Dojo, Template metaprogramming workshop.


Who should attend the C++ Day 2016?

This event is made by C++ professionals for C++ professionals, students and enthusiasts.


What can I find in the C++ Day 2016?

The agenda consists of 6x60' tech talks1x45' Q/A "Ask Us Everything" closing panel, 1x60' C++ Unconference, 1x60' C++ Coding Dojo, a workshop on Template Metaprogramming.

About the technical sessions, speakers will cover the following topics: C++17 for your daily job, Qt Graphics Stack, Data Oriented Design in C++, Kafka and High Performance Streaming, API Design, Modern C++ for the Windows Runtime (C++/WinRT).

The C++ Unconference is a 60' slot for people who want to open/join discussions on any C++ topic.

The C++ Coding Dojo is an interactive session where people will cooperate to solve programming challenges by wisely applying standard algorithms and containers.

The Template Metaprogramming Workshop will introduce templates and C++ metaprogramming. The workshop is free, however a separate registration is needed (details onto the registration page).

A 45' Q/A "Ask Us Everything" panel closes the event.

1/3 of the event will be spent for networking

Coffee breaks are included (lunch is not and - optionally - can be booked by buying another type of ticket).

CppCon Call for Lightning Talks

Do you have something to say to C++ programers? Can you say it in five minutes?

CppCon 2016 Call for Lightning Talks

by Michael Caisse

From the call:

Lightning talks are fast paced, short presentations often sprinkled with humor and intrigue. The popular 5-minute talks present topics that are interesting to C++ programmers and are open to speakers at all experience levels.
