C++Now 2016 Call for Submissions is Live

C++Now 2016 will be held in Aspen, May 9–14, 2016.cpp_Now.png

C++Now 2016 Call for Submissions

From the invitation:

Building upon the resounding success of previous BoostCon and C++Now conferences, C++Now 2016 will present leading speakers from the whole C++ community.

The C++Now Conference is dedicated to discussion and education about C++, an open and free language and standard.  Our Conference will focus on discussion and education about open source software usage and developments in the C++ developer and user community. To reflect the breadth of the C++ and Boost communities, the conference includes sessions aimed at three constituencies: C++ and Boost end-users, hard-core library and tool developers, and researchers pushing the boundaries of computation. The program fosters interaction and engagement within and across those groups, with an emphasis on discussion.

As a multi-paradigm language, C++ is a melting pot with the most compelling ideas from other programming communities blending in powerful ways. Historically, some of the most popular sessions at C++Now have highlighted these concepts, from DSLs to functional programming to transactional memory and more.  Bring your C#, Python, Ruby or Haskell influences to bear in an environment that will broaden their exposure.

At C++Now 2016 we would like to focus on the now established C++11 and C++14 standards and how those standards shape C++’s future. However, by no means is this intended to restrict the topics of proposals we hope to see. Any other topic related to C++, as described below, is suitable for submission.

This year's window for submitting is shorter than normal. Submissions must be in by January 29th, less than four weeks away.


Trip Report: using std::cpp 2015 at Spain

On November 18th 2015, for the third year in a row, we had a C++ day in Spain. Our local event using::std cpp 2015 starts to consolidate as an annual event for the Spanish C++ community. Each Fall more than 100 developers join some academics and students to exchange experiences about using C++.

My full English language trip report can be found here:

Trip report: using std::cpp 2015

DISCLAIMER: Please, note that all talks where given in Spanish. We will be publishing the slides and videos in the next days. However, we feel that this activity is of interest for a wider audience...

C++ User Group Meeting in December 2015

by Jens Weller

From the article:

The montly overview on C++ User Group meetings, this time for December. Meeting C++ is just a few days away, so I'm excited to see that again, so many groups are meeting. Also there are few new user groups worth mentioning! 2 x India (Delhi, Udaipur), Sydney, Beijing, Zürich, Sacramento and Ann Arbor! A new trend seems to be to form learning groups and meet weekly for a in depth C++ tutorial...

C++ meetup in Madrid, Spain: C++ in the video game industry.

Yes! A new edition of the local C++ meetup will take place on the 4th of December at Google Campus' facilities. All the info and RSVPs below:

C++ en la industria del videojuego

by Jordi Mon Companys.

What to expect?

Jose Daniel García will moderate a table of experts in gamedev in C++ that will friendly elbaorate on the state of the language on regards to gamedev, its advantages and threats. Afterwards we will join forces with Product Hunt Madrid and we will have the chance to hear how King develops its games and how a group of students from U-Tad university have managed to get their game nominated to the Play Station Awards. We will water down our thoughts and reflections with plenty of beer thanks to's sponsorship.
