This fall: ACAT & CppCon (Seattle), High-Performance/Low-Latency C++ (London), Qt World Summit (Berlin)

[6/26: Updated to add ACAT]

I can’t remember the last time I’ve gone to Europe twice in one year, but this is the year… up first are ACAT in August and CppCon in September, then a week later in early October I’ll be heading to London to give a single repeat of the three-day High-Performance and Low Latency C++ course, in the same week that I’ll be in Europe already to give a keynote at Qt World Summit in Berlin.

Aug 21-25: ACAT

This year I’ll be giving a keynote at ACAT (topic and day tbd). Unfortunately I cannot be there in person due to conflicts, but the organizers are graciously making arrangements for a remote presentation.

Mon-Fri Sep 25-29*: CppCon (Seattle)

I’ll be giving a brand-new talk at CppCon. If you haven’t registered yet for CppCon but are thinking of coming, note that the Early Bird discount ends on July 7, the end of next week.

* Those are the dates of the 5-day core conference, but technically the full dates are Sep 23 – Oct 1 because CppCon has grown into, somewhat incredibly, a nine-day event this year. How it happened: Last year, we added two days of optional pre-conference tutorials on the weekend before the conference as an experiment; those were so successful that this year there are tutorials on both weekends, before and after the conference, again as an experiment… but I know that at least a few of you have already signed up for all 9 days (wow).

Mon-Wed Oct 9-11: High-Performance and Low-Latency C++ (London)

On October 9-11, I’ll be in London giving a one-time repeat of “High-Performance and Low-Latency C++” (course details page). This is the same as the public course I gave in Stockholm two months ago; because that course sold out, and I was coming to Europe again for Qt World Summit anyway, we decided to do a single repeat that same week, this time in London.

Notes: (1) Some of you have emailed me asking if there will be other dates/cities, and the answer is no, sorry, I do seminars very rarely and this is the last one I have time to do for the foreseeable future. So if you are interested then this is the one to attend. (2) Some of you have also emailed me to ask whether the seminar will be recorded, and the answer is again no, sorry, the organizers are not set up for that. However, you can find all of my past Effective Concurrency writing (on which parts of this course are based) freely available via this blog, just search for that phrase or use the category tag — there’s a book’s worth of free material written by me in individual-article form.

Thu Oct 12: Qt World Summit (Berlin)

The next day, I’ll be in Berlin giving one of the keynotes at Qt World Summit. I’m not sure yet whether it’ll be the closing keynote; for more details, please check their conference schedule once it’s posted.

I look forward to seeing many of you at these events.

  1. Herb are you still working on C++ fulltime?
    I remember you doing a lot of stuff with regards to C++ AMP and blogging frequently, but now it looks like all your C++ time is spend on ISO and you blog very rarely…

  2. QT is great for middle layer C++ guys, like there is something in C++ that will make you think about learning some other language too…
    Howcever, it should be standardized and … well, I hope it will not have same destiniy like Borland, due to the fact that they had something that could work on Linux as well….

  3. @Bender: Right now most of my C++ writing output is going into the C++ Core Guideilnes (https://github.com/isocpp/CppCoreGuidelines) and standards design proposals (e.g., Consistent comparison, https://wg21.link/p0515). Re C++ AMP: We contributed major parts of that for standardization and the “Parallel STL” that is now part of C++17 is a direct evolution of several of those parts (of C++ AMP and Thrust), including being designed around parallel/vector versions of nearly all the existing STL algorithms.

  4. Yeah, nad the way the parallel programming is moving toward….

    Onece, I heard that some guys who don’t know C++, would like to kill it off…
