Adi Shavit reports from the recent code::dive conference

code::dive Trip Report

by Adi Shavit

From the article:

The code::dive conference took place last week in Poland at the beautiful city of Wrocław (pronounced VROWTS-WAF). I had seen excellent videos of talks from previous years and this year promised a roster of distinguished speakers.
I had never been to a C++ conference before and beyond the talks I was looking forward to meeting face-to-face many of my online Slack, Twitter and GitHub friends, followers and followees, as well as many of the speakers whose work I’ve been following online through blogs, repos and videos.

A thorough and detailed summary of the recent six-day meeting.

Trip Report: C++ Standards Meeting in Albuquerque, November 2017

by Botond Ballo

From the article:

A couple of weeks ago I attended a meeting of the ISO C++ Standards Committee (also known as WG21) in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This was the third committee meeting in 2017; you can find my reports on previous meetings here (February 2017, Kona) and here (July 2017, Toronto). These reports, particularly the Toronto one, provide useful context for this post.

With the final C++17 International Standard (IS) having been voted for publication, this meeting was focused on C++20, and the various Technical Specifications (TS) we have in flight, most notably Modules...

Meeting C++ Trip Report

by Simon Brand

From the article:

This year was my first time at Meeting C++. It was also the first time I gave a full-length talk at a conference. But most of all it was a wonderful experience filled with smart, friendly people and excellent talks. This is my report on the experience. I hope it gives you an idea of some talks to watch when they’re up on YouTube, and maybe convince you to go along and submit talks next year! I’ll be filling out links to the talks as they go online.

 

CppCon2017 Trip Report—Gordon Brown

Trip report from CppCon 2017. Highlights, trends and some tips for getting the most out of the conference.

CppCon2017 Trip Report

by Gordon Brown

From the article:

CppCon this year was bigger than ever with approaching 1200 attendees and 7 tracks; making it even harder to pick which talks to go to. Thankfully all the talks are made available online, so if you couldn’t make it to the conference or even if you did but couldn’t get to see all the talks you wanted to, you can go online and watch them. I only got to a handful of the talks as I often had conflicting appointments, but I’ve highlighted a few from what I saw that I would recommend checking out and some which I didn’t make it to but heard good things about.

The ISO C++ Committee met in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA last week to continue work on C++ Technical Specifications and the next International Standard, C++20. C++17 is done; the final version was sent to ISO for publication in September. We started to firm up the schedule and feature set for C++20 at this meeting; we're hoping to land most of the major features by the first meeting of 2019...
