CppCon 2020 Embedded Track

Every year, CppCon offers C++ programmers a chance to exchange ideas with the rest of the C++ community. With the growing interest in autonomous vehicles, wearable devices, and IoT, embedded systems programming makes up an ever larger part of the community. In 2020, CppCon will expand on its past coverage of embedded topics by offering its first official Embedded Track.

Michael WongWe hope that the Embedded Track will foster better communication among the many niches of the C++ community. For desktop programmers, these sessions are a chance to broaden your skill set and learn how developing for embedded systems is different. For embedded programmers, these sessions offer valuable techniques and new perspectives to help you use C++ to its fullest.

Like the Back to Basics Track, the Embedded Track is part of the main conference program. Registering for the conference gives you access to all of the week’s sessions, including the Embedded Track. Like the other sessions in CppCon’s main program, the Embedded Track will be recorded, captioned, and uploaded to YouTube in the months following the conference.

This year’s Embedded Track will feature:

Ben Saks: “Customizing Dynamic Memory Management in C++”

Dan Saks: “Memory-Mapped Devices as Objects”

Inbal LeviInbal Levi: “Exceptions Under the Spotlight”

Ilya Burylov and Michael Wong: “The Future of C++ Parallel and Concurrency Safety Guidelines”

Matthew Butler: “Modern C++ Safety & Security at 20”

Michael Wong: “Modern Software Needs Embedded Modern C++ Programming”

Misha Shalem: “Practical Memory Pool Based Allocators For Modern C++”

Steve Dewhurst: “Class Layout”


Register here, and we look forward to seeing you at CppCon 2020!
