In this week’s interview, Kevin chats with Klaus Iglberger about his upcoming class Modern C++ Design Patterns; we also find out more about the Back to Basics track and his talk on Move Semantics.
In this week’s presenter interview, Kevin talks with Professor Emery Berger about his time working with memory management in C++, what he is looking forward to at this years conference, and his session Mesh: Automatically Compacting Your C++ Application’s Memory.
Come back next week for another CppCon 2019 presenter interview.
In this week’s presenter interview, Kevin chats with Matthew Butler today about his upcoming class at CppCon, Exploiting Modern C++: Building Highly-Dependable Software, his first WG21 meeting in Cologne, and his upcoming CppCon talk If You Can’t Open It, You Don’t Own It.
Stop by again next week for another CppCon 2019 presenter interview.
We’re pleased to announce that the 2019 Poster Program is now available! We have twelve outstanding entries this year, and encourage you to stop by and read all of them.
Whilst many of the main conference talks go deep, Lightning Talks are, well, lighter. That doesn’t mean you won’t gain deep insights from some. Many, however, are humorous, entertaining – and often high-energy!
They can also be a great opportunity for newer speakers to break in to speaking at the CppCon venue.
So if you have something to share that the C++ community might enjoy, and you think you can fit it into a five-minute package, post your submission here
Note that the lightning talk sessions are open to anyone, regardless of whether they have a conference ticket – even if you want to speak!
If you’re looking to level up, and want a chance to speak for more than five-minutes, perhaps you’re up for the Lightning Challenge?
The catch is it’s up to the audience (using “modern technology”) whether you get the full eight minutes, or get cut off at four!
Sign up at the same place for this gamified format or come and observe the antics as the presenters try to win you over for more time.
Whether presenting or being entertained, get ready for the always entertaining Lightning Talks on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday night. See you all there!.
For more details on submissions, see The Lightning Talks Submissions page

Join us again next week for another CppCon 2019 presenter interview.
In this week’s presenter interview, Kevin Carpenter welcomes back Kate Gregory to preview her upcoming talk Naming is Hard: Let’s Do Better. Kate’s talk will discuss how bad we as C++ developers can be when it comes to naming things and how we could improve.

Join members of #include<C++> for a celebration dinner on the evening of Wednesday, September 18th. Meet other attendees who value inclusion and diversity, and network with some of the most influential members of the C++ community. If you are alone at the conference, be sure to come to the dinner to meet people and feel more connected. If you’re “the only one” from your team come and connect to a larger group and share advice and support.
After a buffet dinner there will be a panel discussion moderated by Kate Gregory, and then there will be more time to strengthen friendships and learn from each other. It will be a special evening – please be part of it!
Note: if cost is an issue for you, please contact #include<C++> to apply for a scholarship to the dinner. Limited numbers are available. If you are able to contribute to the scholarship fund and ensure another attendee is able to benefit from the dinner, they’d love to hear from you, too.
(This option was added to registration late, so attendees that registered early might have missed it. Since it is a stand-alone registration option, just register again selecting only this item.)
You can register here.
Over the next few weeks we’re going to bring you some great interviews with CppCon 2019 presenters, conducted by our own Kevin Carpenter. Each one is a quick look at what you can expect from their talk.
This week we’re pleased to introduce Clare Macrae, with a sneak peak at her talk, Quickly Testing Legacy C++ Code with Approval Tests. Clare describes how Approval Tests can help you get coverage for your legacy code.
Kevin also brings us Eric Niebler and David Hollman discussing their upcoming talk, A Unifying Abstraction for Async in C++.
Join us each Monday for another set of presenter interviews.
