    The suggestion has been made that during our workshop meetings (on the fourth Wednesday of the month) we discuss the book: "C++ Coding Standards" http://www.amazon.com/Coding-Standards-Rules-Guidelines-Practices/dp/0321113586

    The idea is that individuals volunteer to cover items from the book and then (at a subsequent meeting) present them with a five or ten minute (per item) presentation discussing the issue raised, the purpose of the coding standard, and personal observations on applicability of the guideline.

    I bring this up because I'd like some discussion on the idea, possibly some volunteers for items, and I want to stake my claim. I will come prepared to discuss one or more items from the section entitled "Error Handling and Exceptions." These items are related to the meeting topic of Exception Safety.

    Dane, thanks for organizing the workshop. It was interesting to listen to everyones different experiences and it was awesome to pick up new good tricks.

    Check[masked] in the latest C++11 publically available draft: http://www.open-std.org/JTC1/SC22/WG21/docs/papers/2012/n3376.pdf There's the answer to the noexcept inheritance question.

    Hey folks, I just wanted to let you all know that Jon will not be attending due to illness. The workshop is still on, though.

    I am very interested in coming as I have a few questions about C++ exceptions. What should I bring? As a workshop, do I need to have a laptop with relevant code on it, or will vague questions work?
    I haven't been to one of these things before so I don't know what to expect. Is it a formal question and answer session or more of a study group type thing?

      It's informal, so I think vague questions are OK.

    Looking forward for a fruitful meeting and to learn new things! It will be my first time to attend.

    Directions to the meetup:

    Axcient is at the terminus of San Antonio road, on the eastern side of 101. If you're taking 101, take the "San Antonio Rd North" exit. After you cross 101, go through the two stoplights. Axcient will be on your right.

    If there's room, park in the lot closest to San Antonio. There is only one public door in the building; and it's on that side. There will be signs for ACCU on the doors.

    There will be someone at the front door until about 7:30 to show you where the meeting is. If you have any problems, call the front-desk at 650.810.2601. See you there!

    If I didn't make it to the preceding Exception-Safe Coding presentation, will I get anything out of attending? Are there examples to work on? I have VS 2010 on my development laptop, will that environment work with the workshop?

      Jeff, if you have the time, part one is online at http://exceptionsafec...­, but I doubt that this is necessary. If you have questions about exceptions, just brings those.

      My post below was meant to be a reply to this comment.

    It's going to be an informal meeting. The idea is that everyone brings some examples and bounces them off others there. VS2010 should be fine for any non-C++11 exception work; although I'm sure there are some differences.

    Are there any slides available from the preceding presentation?

    Just wanted to let you guys know that Axcient will be subsidizing the workshops by providing pizza or other. This first one will have pizza.

    I'm tentatively planning to can a toy exercise using RAII and exceptions for the workshop, possibly with templates. I'll probably be doing some research on techniques beforehand, their pros/cons.
