About the conference:

ACCU 2017 is set to be bigger and better than ever, with keynotes from Herb Sutter, Frances Buontempo, Brad Chamberlain and Russ Miles.

Generating Sequences

A virtual container.

Generating Sequences

By Anthony Williams

From the article:

I was having a discussion with my son over breakfast about C++ and Python, and he asked me if C++ had anything equivalent to Python's range() function for generating a sequence of integers. I had to tell him that no, the C++ standard library didn't supply such a function, but there were algorithms for generating sequences (std::generate and std::generate_n) into an existing container, and you could write something that would provide a "virtual" container that would supply a sequence as you iterated over it with range-for...

C++ User Group Sofia first year

by Dimitar Mirchev

From the article

Some time in November 2015 we decided that it is a shame that we do not have a C++ User Group in Sofia, Bulgaria, and we decided that instead of waiting to just make it. This is a retro and an overview of what happened in our first year. I hope you find it helpful and inspirational.
