This might just be the worlds first distributed C++ meet-up! We'll be running simultaneously in two European cities - connected via a live video stream.

Thanks to King (https://discover.king.com/) for sponsoring and hosting this month's event - as well as doing all the hard work to make the video sync happen!


For access to King's offices we'll need access cards produced. Therefore we'll require your full name - meetup.com nicknames will not be sufficient. You'll be asked for this when you register here.


So, C++ London will be joined by SwedenCpp (https://www.meetup.com/swedencpp/events/243386213/), the C++ developer community of Stockholm, for an evening of lightning talks from both locations.

Note the different location from normal, as well as an earlier start time (mostly due to timezone issues). We've tried to organise things to minimise any inconvenience - for example Stockholm will have their pizza and drinks at the start, whereas we'll do it at the end.

So here's the schedule:

17:30 Pre-session networking and getting that good seat at the front

18:00 Lightning talks from Stockholm video stream

19:00 Lightning talks in London (streamed to Stockholm)

20:00 Socialising with pizza and drinks, c/o King
