CppCon 2023 Call for Submissions – Back to Basics Track

To become an expert at any skill, one must first master the fundamentals. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, the Back to Basics (B2B) Track is calling for talks that showcase the foundational programming topics that every C++ programmer should know. CppCon has a history dating several years of Back to Basics topics that both beginners and experts can benefit from for learning and mastering C++ foundations. The visibility for these talks is high both onsite and on the CppCon YouTube channel — so we’d like you to consider submitting to this track and being part of this track’s rich history!

Submissions to this track focus on teaching and explaining the technical aspects of the C++ programming language from first principles. The talks in this track are technical, but each topic is taught from the first building blocks so the audience can follow along (and the attention to detail of a B2B talk may even benefit the experts!).

Past Topics for submission may include:

  • Debugging
  • Casting
  • Concurrency
  • Pointers
  • Arrays
  • Templates
  • Smart Pointers
  • Object-Oriented Programming
  • And we also encourage repeats — because we want your unique way of teaching!

Trainers, teachers, engineers, or those with deep expertise of foundational topics (yes that’s you!) are wanted to help train the next C++ talent in the Back to Basics (B2B) Track!

Details on the submission process can be found on the Main Program Submissions page.
