Tomorrow (August 5th) is the last day of Early Bird Online registration.
Keynote Speaker: Herb Sutter
Herb Sutter is author of several popular C++ books and the chair of the ISO C++ committee. He is a Software Architect for Microsoft.
This talk will be the seventh in Herb’s series on Simplifying C++ and it explores the possibility of acquiring more quantifiable data that we could analyze to measure sources of C++ language complexity.
From his talk’s description:
This talk reports work to systematically catalog and measure C++’s unneeded complexity, how some current evolution proposals may address its major sources, and presents specific suggestions on what we might be able to do about it in the context of a future-evolution proposal to simplify parameter passing and provide meaningful initialization guarantees in C++.
