Let's get together, introduce ourselves, and do a deep-dive on a 'fastgrep' implementation in Modern C++!

We will be hosted by CIC (Cambridge Innovation Center), a shared-workspace focusing on the startup community, in the Meridian conference room on the 5th floor at their 50 Milk St. location in the Financial District.

I will order food for this meetup. Please consider donating money, using the 'Chip in (' button on the webpage.

- 7:00 Hung Dang: 'fastgrep': Implementing a fast grep-like command in Modern C++ [masked] min)
"This talk will start with writing a simple line counting program and make our program more complicated by each step using policy based design approach. At the end of this talk we will be able to create a very fast grep like command i.e it is faster than grep or ripgrep. As much as of this talk will focus on how to write reusable and high performance algorithms and some specific algorithms designing that makes core algorithms have greater performance than naive approaches."
- 9:00 Head out for food and drinks!
