A reminder from the CppCon blog:

Early bird registration ends this weekend

by Jon Kalb

From the post:

No matter when you register for CppCon 2017, you be able to meet with:

  • over a thousand other professional C++ engineers, including book, blog, and library authors, standards committee members, compiler and other tool implementers, and teachers and trainers;
  • scores of the best presenters in the industry; and
  • exhibitors from all over the world

and attend:

  • five days of six or seven tracks of peer-reviewed presentations,
  • daily plenary talks from recognized industry leaders,
  • multiple lightning talk sessions,
  • expert panels and special sessions,
  • poster presentations, and
  • social events.

But if you do it this week, you save more than enough money to join us at the Boeing Future of Flight Field Trip.

To help you decide, here is this year’s promo video:
