CppCon 2020 Trip Report--Conor Hoekstra

And another.

CppCon 2020 Trip Report

by Conor Hoekstra

From the article:

This was my second time attending CppCon. The first time I attended was in 2019, when I gave my first CppCon presentation in two parts, Algorithm Intuition - although I personally recommend the C++Now 2019 version which is 30 minutes shorter.

CppCon 2020 Trip Report

by Shafik Yaghmour

From the article:

CppCon 2020 was online this year due to Covid-19. I was not sure what to expect from an online only conference. I had heard mildly positive feedback from recent online only conferences but this would be my first experience. For the most part the experience exceeded my expectations. There were were technical problems here and there but mostly it ran smoothly. It was fatiguing to watching videos for so long but since I was home I was able to stretch in between sessions and move around and that usually helped...

From the article:

The CppCon conference will be taking place fully online this year. And of course the JetBrains C++ team wouldn’t dream of missing the biggest C++ community event of the year!

We’ll join CppCon 2020 with a one-day virtual room hosted by CppCon over Remo on Thursday, September 17. And the great thing is that our CppCon virtual room is open to everyone!

Some news from Meeting C++: there is now one ticket for virtual events of Meeting C++ and for Meeting C++ online a limited amount of sponsored tickets is available

Two new ticket types for Meeting C++

From the article:

Today I can announce two important updates for Meeting C++ online and Meeting C++ 2020!

One online ticket for Meeting C++ 2020 and Meeting C++ online

While you can buy separate tickets for Meeting C++ online and 2020, now there is an online ticket for all virtual Meeting C++ events in 2020 available! You can get it in the ticketshop of Meeting C++ 2020 only, as this is the easiest process to offer it. The ticket enables you to attend these online conferences...

CppCon 2019: A State of Compile Time Regular Expressions--Hana Dusíková

This year, CppCon 2020 is going virtual. The dates are still the same – September 14-18 – and we are aiming for the CppCon live event to have pretty much everything you’re familiar with at CppCon except moved online: multiple tracks including “back to basics” and a new “embedded” track; live speaker Q&A; live talk time zones friendly to Americas and EMEA (and we’re going to try to arrange around-the-clock recorded repeats in all time zones, where speakers who are available can be available for live Q&A in their repeated talks too, and we’ll do that if it’s possible – but we’re still working on it!); virtual tables where you can interact face-to-face online with other attendees just like at the physical event; virtual exhibitor spaces where you can meet the folks on your favorite product’s teams to ask them question face-to-face; pre- and post-conference classes; and even the CppCon house band playing live before every plenary session. All talk recordings will be freely available as usual on YouTube a month or two after the event, but everything else above will be available only live during CppCon week.

To whet your appetite for this year’s conference, here’s another of the top-rated talks from last year. Enjoy – and register today for CppCon 2020 – all the spirit and flavor of CppCon, this year all virtual and online!

A State of Compile Time Regular Expressions

by Hana Dusíková

Summary of the talk:

In this talk I will present an advancement on the Compile Time Regular Expression (CTRE) library. The library was designed with new C++20 features, and it uses novel techniques. This presentation independently sums up the work since my previous CppCon talk about the library.

The primary topic of this talk will be an explanation of the new Deterministic Finite Automaton (DFA) engine in the library and how it's built and optimised during compilation. I will explain the differences and limitations of the new engine in comparison to the previous Back Tracking engine. I will address these differences with a benchmark and I will discuss the generated assembly.

Even if you are not interested in regular expressions, you will learn new techniques in compile-time meta-programming and see new C++20 features in action.

The Microsoft C++ team has an exciting lineup of sessions at CppCon 2020. Many of us will also be present at our team’s booth in the virtual exhibition hall throughout the conference. Come say hi and let us know if you have any questions about our talks, products, or anything else! We’ll be making a few exciting announcements about Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code...
