Andy Kirsch - Property based testing

Bill Hoffman, the creator of the CMake project, will give an introduction to development with modern CMake constructs. CMake is 17 years old and has evolved over time into the most widely used C++ build tool in the world. In the past 5 years, many new features have been added to CMake to make the creation of cross platform build files easier. This talk will provide best practices for development and maintenance of a CMake build system. The talk will cover the "target centric" approach to writing CMake files. In addition, testing and quality dashboards with CDash ( will be covered.


We're looking for speakers! It's OK if you've never spoken before or if you've spoken hundreds of times, we want to hear from you!

We're looking for talks about anything interesting to programmers, come share about your favorite language or framework, or learn something new and talk about how it went! We're hoping for talks about anything but here are a few things members have mentioned wanting to learn about recently: Go, C, C++, Haskell, Erlang, and Elixir.

Contact Jess or Brock on the left or through whatever means you have :)
