Don’t miss the opening keynote by Bjarne Stroustrup at 9:00am Seattle time on Wednesday (other time zones). It will be followed by many other insightful and enlightening talks, from many of the gurus of C++. The first two days are about Standard C++ on all platforms; the third day contains a mix of portable platform topics and Microsoft-specific content that I think will be of interest to people working on other platforms too.
My talk is first thing Thursday, 9:00am Seattle time:
After a few minutes giving a promised update on VC++ conformance progress, I’ll switch to pure Standard C++ for the rest of the talk and focus on three topics:
- ISO C++ update: The latest news from C++14 standardization now that the CD comment ballot recently concluded.
- Portable C++ libraries update: I mentioned this at the last GoingNative, and here’s the status update people have been asking me for. This topic will get extra time for emphasis and news.
- One C++: You’ll see what I mean…
I hope that you’ll find it to be informative, and leave with at least one or two thoughts you weren’t expecting to hear about and maybe with a different view of C++ than you had before.
In addition to the livestream, the entire conference will also be available on demand. Note that sessions typically take a few days to post after they occur, so if you miss a talk on the live feed, just be patient and it will appear.
Pre-emptive FAQ: Every time we do this, someone is disappointed that the livestream doesn’t work on their iPads or some other popular hardware. But it actually does work – just look for the alternative-format link if it doesn’t autodetect. You should be able to view it on any major platform.
