30 Years of Teaching C and C++

Most of the members of our group are programmers,
or looking to become programmers, but it is
possible to earn a living from C and C++ in other
ways.

Jay F. Shachter (the Organizer of the Chicago
C/C++ Users' Group, until someone else volunteers
to do it), has earned his living for the past 30
years mostly as a trainer of programmers and
system administrators.  After taking a few minutes
to welcome the new members who joined our group
during the summer, Jay will start off the new
season with a talk about his 30 years of
experience teaching C and C++.  This will not be a
PowerPoint presentation, just a telling of
stories, with perhaps some observations on the
long-term trends in the industry.

    Excellent! It was very interesting to hear about Jay's history and how it pertained to C++/C

    We've known Jay as our lead organizer, who has kept our organization at the top of Chicago area professional groups, so we wondered whether his taking on the presenter role himself just meant that we couldn't find a suitable season-opening speaker. But the 22 members who attended enjoyed for nearly two hours one of our most engrossing presentations. Speaking without visual aids Jay held our interest with anecdotes and reminiscences from his long experience as a teacher and consultant. An excellent season opener!

    The 27 members who made reservations and didn't attend missed a stimulating evening. It's fortunate that we didn't order food and refreshments for them.
