I have news - one good and one bad. The good news first. We will meet at a pub (The Scotsman) and there will be free drinks at the meetup (sponsored by Programutvikling). The bad news is... I am very sorry, and so is he... Herb Sutter had to cancel his talk.
We will do a C++ Pub Quiz instead. I will present a set of small C++ snippets and you will work in groups trying to reason about and come up with good answers. There will be many educational snippets where we elaborate on the basics of C++, but some of the snippets will be really hard with surprising answers and where we explore the dark and dusty corners of the language. The motivation for doing the quiz is to learn from each other while having fun.
Let's meet at 1800, perhaps you would like to order some food? The quiz starts 1830. We end the formal part of the meetup at 2000, but then I am sure that several of us will gather to continue the discussions and perhaps celebrate the release of the C++11 standard.
Please update your RSVP status. I expect that several will prioritize differently as Herb Sutter is not giving a talk, but it would be cool if you join us for a C++ Pub Quiz.
