Meeting C++ Trip Report

by Simon Brand

From the article:

This year was my first time at Meeting C++. It was also the first time I gave a full-length talk at a conference. But most of all it was a wonderful experience filled with smart, friendly people and excellent talks. This is my report on the experience. I hope it gives you an idea of some talks to watch when they’re up on YouTube, and maybe convince you to go along and submit talks next year! I’ll be filling out links to the talks as they go online.

CppCon2017 Trip Report

by Gordon Brown

From the article:

CppCon this year was bigger than ever with approaching 1200 attendees and 7 tracks; making it even harder to pick which talks to go to. Thankfully all the talks are made available online, so if you couldn’t make it to the conference or even if you did but couldn’t get to see all the talks you wanted to, you can go online and watch them. I only got to a handful of the talks as I often had conflicting appointments, but I’ve highlighted a few from what I saw that I would recommend checking out and some which I didn’t make it to but heard good things about.
