Italian C++ Conference 2016

by Marco Arena

From the article:

After two years of meetups and participations in Italy, last Saturday we had more than 100 people attending (130+ registered people – ~22% drop) the first edition of the Italian C++ Conference, in Milan, our new free event fully focused on C++. Hosted by “Bicocca” University and sponsored by RogueWave Software, we delivered 5×60′ technical sessions, 1×30′ sponsor demo session and 1×40′ Q/A panel. It has been a great day!...

C++Now 2016 trip report

by Vittorio Romeo

From the article:

I am very happy to have been part of the C++Now conference for another year, and I hope that I'll be able to come back in the future.

This year, I participated both as a speaker and as a Student/Volunteer.

The experience was, again, simply fantastic: I spent four days in a beautiful location, attended some of the most technically advanced and innovative C++ talks and, most importantly, had the occasion to meet a lot of amazing people.

As a Student/Volunteer, my tasks included: recording the talks, helping during the lunch break/picnic, assisting speakers during sessions and generally helping attendees when possible.

I'd like to thank Jon Kalb, Bryce Lelbach, and the rest of conference staff for making my participation possible.

In this trip report, I'll briefly describe some of my favorite talks and what I have learned from them, then introduce my sessions...

Schedule for ACCU 2016 has been published

The schedule for the annual ACCU Conference has just been published. The conference will be held at Marriott Hotel  City Centre, in Bristol, UK, on April 19-23, 2016. The conference is focused on professionalism in programming, but as always the schedule contains a lot of talks about C++.


ACCU is a small and friendly conference, typically 400+ attendees living together in the same hotel for a week discussing everything about programming. Most of the talks(60+) are 90 minutes, with long breaks inbetween, inviting to deep and insightful discussions both during and after the sessions. If you are into programming, especially C++, this is a conference that you might want to consider.
