Calls for Lightning Talks and Open Content

From the article:

Less that 30 days out from CppCon 2017, regular session and poster submissions are closed, both of the field trip tours are sold out, and most of our official hotel blocks are either closed or sold out.

But, even now, there are still conference opportunities. There is still over two weeks left of regular registration, we are still accepting class registrations, we have rooms available in some of our official hotel blocks, and it isn’t too late to attend sessions for free by signing up as a volunteer.

To day we are also opening up two ways to present at the conference.

CppCon 2017: Fun, fashion, and kids learning about C++

SaraChipps-300x296.pngThis project has already inspired thousands of kids to learn C++... so why not have a live programming worship for kids at CppCon 2017?

Fun and Fashion: Kids Learning about C++

From the article:

Sara J. Chipps shipped a product last November that has already inspired about 4000 kids (aged 8-12) to learn to write C++. Want to know more? So do we, so we’ve invited her to present and give a workshop on Jewelbots at CppCon.

Her talk is Building for the Best of Us: Design and Development with Kids in Mind:

Building an API easy enough for kids to understand (in C++) is a challenge. Every design decision, from the circuit board to the plastic can effect the results. We’ll talk about product design, manufacturing, firmware, software, and Arduino AP as we cover the Jewelbots timeline from Kickstarter to shipping to distribution. Additionally, hear from the two girls who are the top Jewelbots from the Bellevue area! You’ll learn what they have built and how they view the future of C++.

Following her talk, Sara will host a Jewelbots Build Workshop for kids and grownups. This workshop is open to anyone to come and watch (even if you aren’t registered for the conference), but if you want to reserve a Jewelbot to work on during the workshop (and who wouldn’t?), you’ll need to reserve it here:

From the article:

The Summer 2017 ISO C++ standards meeting was held in July 10-15 at the University of Toronto. Many thanks to Google, Codeplay, and IBM for sponsoring the event, as well to folks from Mozilla, Collège Lionel-Groulx, Christie Digital Systems, and Apple for helping to organize. And, of course, we very much appreciate Waterfront International for sponsoring a banquet at the CN Tower.
