Launching the Meeting C++ Community Survey

Take the Meeting C++ Community Survey!

Launching the Meeting C++ Community Survey

by Jens Weller

From the article:

One thing then often has bugged me when looking at the C++ community is that we don't really had good numbers on most things. Jetbrains, ISOCPP and Bartek's coding blog have launched surveys in the last years, which changed this a little. Also I've been doing some surveys on Twitter, giving some limited insight into C++ related topics. But Twitter surveys are very limited, and for a long time I had an idea on how to make this a continuous survey.

C++ User Group meetings in January 2020

by Jens Weller

From the article:

Happy new years! The year has begun, and lots of C++ User Groups have their first meeting of 2020.

Would like to start your own group or looking for ideas in running your current group? Watch my talk from CppCon:

ACCU 2020 Registration


About the conference:

Historically, ACCU has a lot of C++ and C content, and is proud of that: ACCU is the foremost annual conference for people interested in C++ and C, at least in and around the UK. But it is not just a C++ and C conference, ACCU is about programming in whatever language people are using, with whatever tools and processes people are using: D, Chapel, Java, Kotlin, C#, F#, Groovy, Rust, Go, Python, Ruby, Lisp, to name just a few programming languages about which there have been sessions at ACCU conferences. Git, CMake, Meson, TDD, BDD, allthese tools and techniques have been the focus of sessions at ACCU. The ACCU Conference is looking for sessions that will be interesting to people who create software.

Our keynote speaker are this year: Patricia Aas, Emily Bache, Kevlin Henney and Sean Parent

There are these preconference workshops the day before the conference:



Overload 154 is now available

ACCU’s Overload journal of December 2019 is out. It contains the following C++ related articles.

Overload 154 is now available

From the journal:

Sometimes things appear to be inside out. Frances Buontempo considers when a shift of perspective can make things seem better.

Trip Reports: Meeting C++ 2019 and Embedded C++ 2019.
Deciding which conferences to attend is difficult, and we can’t go to them all. Svitlana Lubenska, Hans Vredeveld and Benedikt Mandelkow give us a flavour of what we may have missed.

Non-Recursive Compile Time Sort.
Compile time sorting usually uses recursion. Norman Wilson shows how C++14 features make this easier.

Quick Modular Calculations (Part 1).
Compilers are good at optimising modular calculations. Can we they do better? Cassio Neri shows they can.

We are aware of the film Get Carter. Chris Oldwood asks if it should be called Acquire Carter instead.
