This group is here to give a place for C++ devs to get together and share their experience and knowledge. We'll also keep an eye on the standardisation process and industry trends that affect the use and uptake of the language.
The second meetup of C++ Belfast is here! So what will this meetup cover?
First and foremost I'll give an update on some of the talks to expect at the Autumn ACCU conference. I'll officially close the Call for Proposals on the 16th of June so will have a good idea of programme content by the meetup.
Second I'll give an introduction talk on Cuppa, the SCons-based build system we use at Clearpool which brings a lot of features not found in other systems, such as true parallel builds and direct builds against remote repository code. Time permitting (and speaker willing) we might have another Cuppa-based talk from another member of the group (to be confirmed).
I think the most interesting part of this as a talk topic is that it should trigger some interesting debate about build tools and some of the rationale behind the need for tools like Cuppa.
Lastly, I'll be inviting suggestions for the next meetup as well as looking for feedback on how we can best utilise the meetup from a community perspective.
Unexpected business travel on my part meant a social meetup hasn't happened this month, but as stated at the first meetup there would be a meetup at least every 2 months and so that time has now come!
No location has been confirmed for this meetup so if anyone wants to offer their office please get in touch.
