Join us for fun and games in Denver!
The CppCon 2019 Field Trip will be to Casa Bonita and Hyperspace Arcade.
Spend a fun-filled Sunday afternoon on September 15th, with other CppCon attendees, at the world famous Casa Bonita restaurant for lunch and then free 80’s style arcade games all afternoon at the nearby Hyperspace Arcade.
Casa Bonita is the Mexican restaurant made famous by the South Park episode in which the boys declare that it’s like the Disneyland of Mexican restaurants. The restaurant features a number of different entertainments, such as cliff divers, shows, and a secret hideout.
Hyperspace Arcade features unlimited game play on over one hundred fifty machines including classics and rare titles.
If you are arriving for CppCon 2019 by Sunday morning, this is your opportunity get to know some of your fellow attendees in a fun-filled stress-free environments.
See the CppCon 2019 Field Trip page for details.
Attendees at last year’s Engage, Entertain, Educate (EEE) workshop wrote to us: “Please rehire!” “Please repeat!” and “You should have this class every year.”
Well, we can’t promise every year, but we are are bringing it back this year as a one-day pre-conference workshop.
This workshop is presented by three of the most widely recognized presenters in the C++ community: Andrei Alexandrescu, John Lakos, and Kate Gregory.
The workshop will combine some lecture (“I like the opening by Andrei, it highlights things we need to look [at in] our talk”) with actual presentation practice (“the breakout where we have to simulate the actual talk was really useful!”).
Whether you are planning to speak at a conference, a local user group, or at your own company, this workshop will help you build the skills and confidence that are key to being a successful technical presenter.
This year we are lowering the class size limit which allows more time for attention from each instructor, but does mean that the class will fill sooner. Don’t miss this opportunity to get individual attention and coaching from some of the best presenters in our community.
Register for this workshop and all the rest of this year’s classes on our Registration Page.
CppCon is the annual, week-long face-to-face gathering for the entire C++ community. The conference is organized by the C++ community for the community and so we invite you to present. The conference regular program consists of five days of seven tracks of one hour sessions.
Have you learned something interesting about C++, maybe a new technique possible in C++14/17/20? Or perhaps you have implemented something cool related to C++, maybe a new C++ library? If so, consider sharing it with other C++ enthusiasts by giving a regular program talk at CppCon 2019.
The submissions deadline is May 20 with decisions sent by July 8.
For topic ideas, possible formats, submission instructions and valuable advice on how to make the best possible submission, see the Submissions page.
Note: Calls for lightning talks and Open Content sessions will be made this summer. The deadline for these is the conference itself.
Registration is now open for CppCon 2019 to be held September 15-20, 2019 at the Gaylord Rockies in Aurora, Colorado, USA.
CppCon is the annual, week-long face-to-face gathering for the entire C++ community. The conference is organized by the C++ community for the community. You will enjoy inspirational talks and a friendly atmosphere designed to help attendees learn from each other, meet interesting people, and generally have a stimulating experience.
This year, the conference is taking place at our new home at the Gaylord Rockies Hotel and Convention Center in Aurora, Colorado, very near Denver International Airport. The venue is brand new and we’ll have lots more space, but we’ll still have all the events which you’ve come to know and love, including multiple diverse tracks. The conference will appeal to anyone from C++ novices to experts.
What you can expect at CppCon:
- Invited talks and panels: Expect a week full of insight from some of the world’s leading experts in C++. Still have questions? Ask them at one of CppCon’s panels featuring those at the cutting edge of the language, such as the Grill the Committee panel, where you’ll be able to ask questions of ISO Standard C++ Committee members.
- Presentations by the C++ community: What do embedded systems, game development, high frequency trading, motion picture graphics, the defense and aerospace industries, and particle accelerators have in common? C++, of course! Expect talks from a broad range of domain experts focused on practical C++ techniques, libraries, and tools.
- Lightning talks: Get informed at a fast pace during special sessions of short, less formal talks. Never presented at a conference before? This is your chance to share your thoughts on a C++-related topic in an informal setting.
- Poster Competition: Enjoy the insights on display and vote on your favorite posters. Or share your insights and enjoy competing.
- Exhibitors and Tool time: Have a question or interest about a particular tool? Have one-on-one conversations with tool experts.
- Field Trip: This year’s trip is to world famous Casa Bonita Mexican restaurant and to an “all you can eat” video arcade.
- Student Program: We support full-time students with special registration, content, and social activities.
- Evening events, dinners, and “un-conference” time: Relax, socialize with speakers and other attendees, or start an impromptu coding session.
CppCon’s goal is to encourage the best use of C++ while preserving the diversity of viewpoints and experiences. The conference is a project of the Standard C++ Foundation, a not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to support the C++ software developer community and promote the understanding and use of modern, standard C++ on all compilers and platforms.
