CppCon 2017 Program Available

Bjarne StroustrupThe program for CppCon 2017 is now live!

We’ll have over 100 regular sessions delivered by the best C++ presenters in the industry, many returning from previous years as well as some exciting new voices. We’ll have six or seven concurrent tracks full of sessions containing C++ best practices and what you need to know about C++17. In addition, we’ll have panels, lightning talks, workshops, and some awesome headline speakers.

Speaking of headliners, it’s our pleasure to announce that Bjarne Stroustrup, the creator of C++ and Texas A&M University Distinguished Professor, will be returning this September to give the opening keynote, Learning and Teaching Modern C++:

We – attendees at CppCon – are all teachers. Some teach for a living; many occasionally teach a course or give a lecture; essentially all give advice about how to learn C++ or how to use C++. The communities we address are incredibly diverse.

What do we teach, and why? Who do we teach, and how? What is “modern C++”? How do we avoid pushing our own mistakes onto innocent learners?

Teaching C++ implies a view of what C++ is; there is no value-neutral teaching. What teaching tools and support do we need? Consider libraries, compiler support, and tools for learners.

Most of the program is published, but we are still working a few surprises, so keep checking back.

We’d like to thank the Program Committee, our speakers, and the many professionals who proposed talks which we, unfortunately, just couldn’t squeeze in this year. Thank you for your hard work and enthusiastic support for this year’s program!

2017 is going to be a great year for C++! Register here to join us.
