C++Now 2017

by Michael Park

From the article:

I just returned from C++Now 2017 in Aspen, CO. This was my second time attending the conference and it was just as amazing as last year. My girlfriend decided to come along this time, since Aspen is such a beautiful place. We flew into Denver, rented a car and took the beautiful 4-hour drive into Aspen. She was very happy ��. Strongly recommended...
