Plenary Announced: Titus Winters

We are pleased to announce our remaining plenary speaker for CppCon 2017: Titus Winters.

Titus WintersTitus leads Google’s C++ common libraries project and is one of four arbiters of Google’s official C++ style guidelines. For the last 6 years, Titus has been organizing, maintaining, and evolving the foundational components of Google’s C++ codebase using modern automation and tooling. Titus also designed much of Google’s internal C++ training curriculum, and reinvented Google’s C++ mentorship program. Prior to tackling these large scale C++ challenges, Titus worked on networking APIs in embedded systems.

As a member of the C++ standards committee, Titus focuses his efforts on the evolution of the standard library and is the incoming chair of the Library Evolution Working Group. In addition, Titus is an active speaker in the broader C++ industry and community, advocating for more scalable and maintainable coding guidelines and practices.

He has also been known to have deep thoughts about the card game Hanabi and the proper preparation of classic cocktails, although sometimes these run at cross purposes.

Titus’ presentation, C++ as a “Live at Head” Language,  will start with an exciting announcement; we’re keeping the details to ourselves until CppCon 2017.
