Big Update with Big Thanks for a Big Program

by Jon Kalb

From the announcement:

The deadline for Main Program submissions has passed with a near-record number of submissions! ... We are excited both by the quality of the submissions and by the fact that that the vast majority of submissions were for onsite presentations.

... Our Program Committee is currently hard at work reviewing and rating each submission and we know that we’ll have an amazing program for both onsite and online attendees in Aurora in October. As you know, we’ve announced that Bjarne Stroustrup will be our opening keynote onsite... Creating multiple, thoughtful evaluations on almost two-hundred submissions touching on virtually every topic of C++ and software design in less than a month is a mammoth task, but we know that the CppCon 2021 Program that you’ll be seeing in Aurora and/or online, will be something that we as organizers, the Program Committee, and the presenters, will be proud to present.

Voting results and the Top 10 talks for Meeting C++ 2021

The results from the voting for this years Meeting C++ conference are in, and published together with the Top10 of talks!

Voting results and the top 10 Talks for Meeting C++ 2021

by Jens Weller

From the article

The Meeting C++ hive mind has spoken, and given the feedback of the C++ community to the submissions of Meeting C++ 2021.

Like in the previous years, one could vote from 0-5 for each talk and leave a comment if you'd like on each talk. The talks are randomized in Order, and not every voting session has finished the full stack of talks to vote on. The result below is then achieved by weighing the votes from 0-5 as {-3,-2,-1,1,3,4}, this gives the talks that folks want to see a bit of an edge, while the negative numbers help to keep the range of the end result a bit closer. Having bought a ticket before the voting starts does give you a higher voting weight, as you'll be attending the conference.

Testing online platforms for Meeting C++ 2021

by Jens Weller

From the article:

For this year, the conference of Meeting C++ is online only. I've made this decision last year, when it was clear that this is an option that is available. With predictions of a 4th Wave in Europe in Fall, it seems to be the right decision. Since 2020 Meeting C++ online gathered a community of folks interested in C++ and attending online events into a User Group. With one year of experience in hosting online events, its time to move forward and see which platform should host these events in the future.

5th August: Teaching C++ with Victor Ciura
12th August: Ivan Cukic - Members through a looking glass!
19th August: Peter Sommerlad - Beyond rule of zero
