Forming an Israeli C++ National Body
1) Why should we want to take part in the ISO C++ committee?
2) How to join the committee?
3) Options for taking part without joining the committee.
*Michael Peeri* is a C++ programmer (Verint, BMC). PhD student in computational biology/systems biology at Tel-Aviv university.
The Functional Programming (FP) paradigm is often overlooked by developers in C++, but it offers solution directions and tools which can be of value to them. In this talk, I present some motivation for using FP ideas in C++ and focus on describing the tools from C++11 onward that support "functional-style" programming.
*Ofri Sadowsky* earned his Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the Johns Hopkins University in 2009. He holds M.Sc. and B.Sc. degrees from the Hebrew University. His studies focused in Computer Assisted Surgery and Medical Image Analysis. His work interests include: computational geometry, visualization, computer vision, advanced software design and development of "software gadgets". As of 2019, Dr. Sadowsky is employed by Harman as a senior algorithm developer.
Rust promises to be fast, reliable and productive. The talk discussed the main differences and similarities with C++
*Pavel Yosifovich* (@zodiacon) is a developer, trainer, consultant and author. He's also a Pluralsight author.
