C++Now 2018 Accepting Student / Volunteer Applications

From the announcement:

It is my pleasure to announce the sixth year of the C++Now Student/Volunteer program! We are again inviting students with an interest in C++ to attend the May 6-11, 2018 conference in Aspen, CO as Student/Volunteers.

The Student/Volunteer program is an excellent way for students and young coders with an interest in C++ to learn about language and make lasting connections with the community.

Student/Volunteers will receive free registration and a travel stipend for their travel and lodging.

Volunteers will handle various tasks during the conference, such as assisting presenters, setting up presentation rooms, running A/V equipment, and helping with breaks and the conference picnic.

Students from all fields of study are welcome to apply. However, this conference covers advanced C++ topics, and applicants should have ample experience with the C++ programming language and be familiar with general computer science topics.

Applications will be accepted until March 9th, 2018. Application decisions will be sent out by March 16th, 2018.

The Boost C++ Master Class

by Boris Schäling

About the training:

Welcome to a 2-day training that strives to deepen your understanding of the Boost C++ Libraries. As of today, the Boost C++ Libraries are the most important stepping stone if you want to increase your productivity as a C++ developer and significantly improve the quality of your code. In-depth knowledge of the Boost C++ Libraries empowers you to write code that is shorter, more expressive, less error-prone, more agile, and more future proof.

Boris Schäling is one of the world’s leading professional Boost C++ expert. He has seen multiple times how detailed knowledge of the Boost C++ Libraries can turn a C++ developer into an exceptional C++ developer. Boris Schäling is an active member of the Boost community. He is the author of the book "The Boost C++ Libraries" and responsible for the website theboostcpplibraries.com.

The training is for intermediate and advanced C++ developers. Advantage if you have some experience with the Boost libraries (prior knowledge of Boost helpful, but not required).

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to attend this 2-day course, to be held in Stockholm on the 13th-14th March, 2018. Please notice there are a limited number of seats.
