CppCon was a blast. I can’t wait till next year.
But there’s something coming up sooner than that: In two weeks, Scott and Andrei and I will be holding the C++ and Beyond 2014 “Road Show” in Stuttgart, Germany.
The key to this event is not new material, but a new location. Whereas all other C&B’s have been in North America, this is the first time ever that Scott and Andrei and I are doing an event together in Europe. That’s exciting! (At least for us.) If you’ve been to C&B you will have seen most of this material before, but if you haven’t been able to get to C&B until now you may find it convenient to have the event be more local to European attendees. The talks are all talks we’ve given at C&B before, but there will be updates.
Scott seems to be looking forward to a debate with me about parameter passing. I’m glad he thinks I’m “seeing more reason than [I] used to, (i.e., having moved closer to [Scott’s] point of view)” – by which he means that he has moved closer to my point of view. :) Should be fun! The boring truth, as I presented at CppCon on Friday, is that everyone agrees that the default parameter passing rules are the same as C++98… <gd&r> and let the games begin!

That is true. It looks like C# is the fastest!
BTW, indded.com is not about ranking programming languages, it is simply search the web for available jobs in US.
@Andy: Before you jump to conclusions, try typing C# or Java in the same “job trends” box and see almost identical downward curves for all three. :)
To paraphrase Twain, who was himself quoting Disraeli: ‘There are lies, darned lies, and Internet programming language statistics…’
How fast demand for C++ is going down:
