The session schedule for this week’s //build/ conference in San Francisco has now been posted.
I have a talk on Friday at noon Pacific time, titled “The Future of C++.” Note this is a Microsoft conference, so the talk is specifically about the future of the Visual C++ product, but nevertheless it’s all about Standard C++ because I’ll start with a short update on ISO goings-on and the bulk of the talk will be an update on standards conformance in Visual C++ and explaining a number of the most modern ISO C++ features.
On Friday, you can watch my talk live at Channel 9. In the meantime, you can get the keynotes and some other major sessions at the same link all day today, tomorrow, and Friday… as I write this, a cool guy named Steve has the camera and just gave away thousands of nifty 8″ tablets. I’ll be in the same place in two days to talk C++.
If you’re in San Francisco for //build/ and care about C++, you want to be in South Hall: Gateway Ballroom for session 2-306.
Even if you don’t use Visual C++ a lot right now, you might find some of the ISO C++ standards context and updates interesting.
