ACCU - Trip Report—Ori Ben-Shir

Another one.

ACCU - Trip Report

by Ori Ben-Shir

From the article:

I was attending this year ACCU conference, and I am very eager to share my impression of the conference. ACCU is an annual conference located in the lovely city of Bristol. The conference is mostly dedicated to C++ developer. While C++ developers are in mind, the conference is not limited to C++ material, and it includes talks for various topics and even some other programming languages. Yes, there was a Rust talk and even a workshop this year.
It was the first time I have attended a big conference. And I must admit it was a great pleasure! I’m in love with the concept of technical talks. I find it to be the most effective learning method for me. The opportunity to meet a lot of tech enthusiastic is both fun and enriching. Wrapping it all with a vacation for such a lovely city such as Bristol is immensely satisfying. If you have the opportunity, I encourage you to attend this conference next year. I also think the organizers did a great job. I genuinely like the extra social session. The pub quiz, for instance, was perfect, though some of the code samples from it were as far from perfect as possible.

I have a lot to say about the content itself. I tend to believe I have more to say than you want to read. So let’s focus on some of the talks I think are more relevant...

ACCU 2019 trip report

by Mathieu Ropert

From the article:

This year’s edition of ACCU was held from April 10th to April 13th, in Bristol as always. I arrived a day earlier from Paris after a short stop in France which was supposed to offer some supply of good weather and trips to a few winemakers in preparation for the harsh conditions of Great Britain.

From the start things went awry as I could only spare half an hour for a visit to a winemaker in Vouvray who turned out to be quite forgettable, not to mention the weather that was only barely keeping it up together. Still I didn’t immediately notice that something was off, having spent the pasts months enduring the cold winter of Sweden. It took a second flight from Paris to Bristol to realize it: spring is there (although a couple of Bristol locals apologized for the weather being unexpectedly non-terrible)...

Report from the February 2019 ISO C++ meeting (Core Language working group)—Jason Merrill

Short and sweet.

Report from the February 2019 ISO C++ meeting (Core Language working group)

by Jason Merrill

From the article:

The February 2019 ISO C++ meeting was held in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. As usual, Red Hat sent three developers to the meeting: I attended in the Core Language working group, Jonathan Wakely in Library, and Thomas Rodgers in SG1 (parallelism and concurrency). The meeting went smoothly, although there was significant uncertainty at the beginning where we would end up. In the end, Modules and Coroutines were accepted into the C++20 draft, so now we have our work cut out for us nailing down the remaining loose corners. Here ar highlights from the meeting...
