“Modern C++ Template Programming” with Nicolai Josuttis

Meeting C++ 2018 offers also a workshop with Nicolai Josuttis:

Modern C++ Template Programming

by Jens Weller

From the article:

Each and every C++ programmer uses templates. Containers such as vector<> or array<>, strings, algorithms such as sort(), iterators, and I/O streams are all implemented as generic code. Modern C++ adds type traits, smart pointers, and template member functions such as emplace(), and generic lambdas as a tricky form of generic code.

Nevertheless the knowledge and understanding of how to implement and use templates is very limited and each and every programmer is sooner or later getting uncertain.

This workshop therefore discusses templates for a whole day to make clear what it means to use templates and how to use them in practice. As a result the general understanding of templates will be improved and generic code might become more helpful and less surprising.

Keynotes at Meeting C++ 2018

Much to expect from this years set of Keynote speakers at Meeting C++ 2018

Keynotes at Meeting C++ 2018

by Jens Weller

From the article:

Two of them are well known for a long time in the C++ community as speakers and book authors, while Lisa can be seen as a newcomer. All three of them still have some time to think about what they'd like to talk about, I might give you more insights into the keynotes later this year.

From the article:

This year its the 7th edition of Meeting C++, the 2nd time that it spans 3 days!

Speaking at Meeting C++ is a fun experience, you get to attend the speakers dinner, attend the full conference for free and enjoy the luxurious Hotelrooms the Andels offers from Wednesday to Saturday! You can look at last years schedule to get a feel for what your competition might talk about, but have in mind that you don't see the talks that were not submitted! If you want to talk about a C++ topic that wasn't covered yet, or have a unique idea for your talk, please submit!

Start speaking!

Meeting C++ encourages you to start speaking about C++, as we all like to hear more and different voices and opinions on the wide range that C++ has become since C++11. Thats why Meeting C++ has a track that is dedicated to new speakers! If this is of interest to you, please read Jon Kalbs blog post on Developing Talk Ideas, additional information on speaking and slide design is available in the speaking guidelines of Meeting C++! You'll find help with your talk in the C++ slack under #speakerscorner.
Also you can submit talks on embedded to Meeting Embedded 2018!

Something new: you can now support Meeting C++ through Patreon!

This will go mostly into videos & video interviews and the Meeting C++ blog. I started doing my own videos and video interviews on YouTube last year, and to compliment that, I decided to also start a community of supporters on patreon. You'll be able to know guests of Meeting C++ & friends ahead of time and be able to suggest potential questions to ask...
