C++Now 2018 Accepting Student / Volunteer Applications

From the announcement:

It is my pleasure to announce the sixth year of the C++Now Student/Volunteer program! We are again inviting students with an interest in C++ to attend the May 6-11, 2018 conference in Aspen, CO as Student/Volunteers.

The Student/Volunteer program is an excellent way for students and young coders with an interest in C++ to learn about language and make lasting connections with the community.

Student/Volunteers will receive free registration and a travel stipend for their travel and lodging.

Volunteers will handle various tasks during the conference, such as assisting presenters, setting up presentation rooms, running A/V equipment, and helping with breaks and the conference picnic.

Students from all fields of study are welcome to apply. However, this conference covers advanced C++ topics, and applicants should have ample experience with the C++ programming language and be familiar with general computer science topics.

Applications will be accepted until March 9th, 2018. Application decisions will be sent out by March 16th, 2018.

Cppcon continues to improve!

Inclusiveness, accessibility, and CppCon 2017 videos

by Herb Sutter

From the article:

CppCon has always aimed to be a welcoming environment for everyone, across the whole diverse worldwide C++ community. We made that a cornerstone of our very first blog post nearly four years ago, and since then we’ve invited speakers from as many industries and personal backgrounds as we could, tried to keep ticket prices affordable (nominal and free for students and volunteers, respectively, to help them attend), rolled out successively more detailed codes of conduct, and at last fall’s event we were excited for the first time to have sessions and events especially geared toward families and kids who are just learning how much fun programming can be… yes, in C++...

From the report:

We used the evaluation forms to survey what people is using in their daily job. And we got some pleasent surprises about new standards adoption. It seems C++98/03 usage is going down!
