CppCon is announcing the platform that it has selected for the CppCon 2020 online conference and why it matters.
The question has been asked Why would anyone pay to attend an online conference when the session videos will be made freely available on YouTube?
The answer to this is the same as the answer to the question Why would anyone pay to attend an onsite conference when the session videos will be made freely available on YouTube?
Between the session proposal submitters and the Program Committee reviewers there are literally hundreds of people that work to bring you the best possible program of C++ content every year at CppCon. We think it is the best program available on C++. But we know that it is not the most important aspect of the CppCon experience. We know that the reason that people take the time and money to attend the conference is because it is an unparalleled opportunity to be part of the best gathering of C++ minds of the year.
The best aspect of CppCon is the, so called, hallway track. The conversations that attendees have with presenters and other attendees is what people remember and the reason they return.
While evaluating options for the CppCon 2020 online conference platform, the top-most concern of the organizers was, What platform best supports attendee engagement with other attendees?
With that thought in mind, the organizers selected Remo.
We feel that the Remo platform best serves our goal of delivering the best possible C++ program while also optimizing for attendee engagement.
Of course we aren’t just relying on the platform, the organizers have developed new events that exploit the benefits of an online conference and have found ways to develop and enhance the sense of community that comes from attendee engagement. Attendees will have many opportunities to engage with presenters and other attendees in casual, unrecorded, ask-me-anything sessions.
This year’s event offers an unprecedented opportunity to be a part of this community. Without the time and cost of travel and lodging and with an easy-to-expense registration fee, this is certainly the least expensive and most convenient CppCon ever. Engage with the best minds in C++ from the comfort of your own home.
Don’t miss your chance to join us for what promises to be an online adventure with the C++ community.
