C++ on Sea video posted: Bridge to NewThingia (extended)

Two weeks ago, I had the privilege of speaking at the C++ on Sea 2020 virtual conference. The video of my talk has now been posted — it’s an extended version of the talk I gave at DevAroundTheSun in April. You can find it here:

Thanks very much to Phil Nash and all the other organizers and volunteers who made the virtual event run so smoothly! And thanks also to the post-processing team who did all the videos, including that they did a smooth job of fixing my video hiccup in the middle when I lost my link and had to reconnect to resume (entirely my pilot error).

A software note: I really enjoyed the Remo platform that C++ on Sea used this year. It allowed for lots of attendee interaction that’s surprisingly like mingling at a physical conference… you are in what looks and feels like a room with lots of tables, just like at a conference, and can easily talk face to face (video and audio) with all the folks who are at your table, and move from table to table to mix and mingle. It really felt seamless. I enjoyed spending time talking with some of you there that way — it was great to meet new people as well as see some familiar faces, and I look forward to doing it again soon this September because the current plan is for the also-all-virtual CppCon 2020 to use the same software. So, I hope to literally see many of you then! In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this talk.
