CppCon Academy 2023

For 2023, CppCon Academy will offer some classes that are onsite-only and some classes that are online-only. There will be no mixed onsite-and-online classes.

For individuals whose organization requires it, a certificate of completion is available for classes attended. For information contact the conference registrar.

Class registration and conference registration are separate. Attendees can register for either one or both. Class sizes are limited and may sell out.

Onsite Classes

Class attendeesOnsite classes will be held at the Gaylord Rockies, September 30th – October 1st (pre-conference) or October 7-8 (post-conference). Classes are from 09:00 to 17:00 Aurora time (MDT) with breaks and lunch included. The classes will be held either the weekend immediately before or immediately after the conference.

Online Classes

Online classes will have hours and breaks as arranged by the individual instructors, but in general will be held from 09:00 to 15:00 Aurora time (MDT). Due to the shorter number of hours per day, online classes will be held across three days instead of two. Pre-conference online classes will be held on the last three business days (W-F) the week before the conference. Post-conference classes will be held on the first three business days (M-W) the week following the conference. We do have one half-length online class, and it’s being held on the Monday and Tuesday after the conference.

Privacy Notice

In order to facilitate communications preparing students for class sessions, we share class attendee email addresses with instructors (and vice versa). By default we use the email address that you use for registration. If you’d like to use a different email address for the class than what you use for registration, please note that in the appropriate field during registration.
