We will make this code compile :

static_assert(call_>>,i_<101>>::type::value == 5050, "I now have your attention");

But what is that ??!!

That's right we'll talk about compile-time evaluation and other tricks!
We'll discuss some ways to abuse the type systems of C++ to work for you at the cost of your sanity.
The pros and cons ( const? ) of different approachs.
A discussion on the differents metaprogramming library available like Boost::hana, Boost::mpl, kvasir::mpl, etc.
The hundreds of pitfall of those technics.
Why I dislike unsigned int in compile time.
typedef > using;
And for those of you that love constexpr, this compile under Gcc4.3... which doesn't have constexpr implemented !!
Come and see the madness in action on November 20th
