This month we welcome Frances Buontempo, Dominic Jones and Tristan Brindle.

******** Important *********
Please also register on the SkillsMatter website so we can use their facilities:

"Float Literal - A Workaround"
Dominic Jones

C++ does not support float values as templates, however its equivalent can be achieved with user defined literals and a little bit of work.

"Constexpr for fun and... well, just fun"
Tristan Brindle

"What's Your Favourite C++ Book, and Why?"
Frances Buontempo

This will be an audience participation session, so please think about what books have had the biggest impact on your career and/ or thinking.

At Queen Mary, London, adjoint methods for fluid dynamics simulation was the focus of a three year post-doctoral project. Following this research, some of the ideas were carried forward into industry, applying the adjoint methodology to Star-CCM+ simulation software at Siemens.
