For our first meet-up we're going to get together in December for an evening of talks at CodeNode (hosted by SkillsMatter).

Important: Please register on the SkillsMatter page so they know you're coming!

Here's the agenda for the evening:

18:30 pre-session networking, including drinks at the bar if you like

19:00 Phil Nash << "Kick Off"

I'll introduce the group and say a little about what we're intending to do and how you can help in the future.

19:15 Fernando Garcia << "C++: writing code for performance"

Fernando will talk about real-time performance, based on his experience in the games and finance industries.

19:45 Questions, hand-over, break.

20:00 Vittorio Romeo << "Checking Expression Validity in C++11/14/17" 

Covering multiple techniques progressively from C++11 through to C++17, using SFINAE, static_if, if constexpr and others.

We'll finish around 20:30-20:45 where we will adjourn to the bar for more informal discussion and networking.

About the speakers:

Fernando Garcia is a telecommunications engineer from Spain who has worked with C++ for the past four years in different fields: the aerospace industry, the games industry and more recently the finance industry, always as a realtime systems developer.

Vittorio Romeo is a C++ enthusiast from a young age, now with a BS in Computer Science from the "Università degli Studi di Messina". While following the evolution of the C++ standard and embracing the newest features, he worked on several open-source projects, including modern general-purpose libraries and free cross-platform indie games. Vittorio is an active member of the C++ community, speaking at many conferences and events. He currently maintains a YouTube channel featuring well-received modern C++11 and C++14 tutorials. When he's not writing code, Vittorio enjoys weightlifting and fitness-related activities, competitive/challenging computer gaming and good sci-fi movies/TV-series.

      Good idea. There were definitely some people present with solid (no pun intended) experience there. Let's see if we can shame them into ... err.... encourage them to step up :-)

    Hi. Are you going to record this meetup? Will be available the recording on SkillsMatter web page?

    • Phil N.

      I don't believe this one was recorded. I'll have to talk to SkillsMatter about what's involved in getting them recorded in the future.
