Welcome to SwedenCpp, C++ Stockholm 0x0B:
The C++ Distributed Meetup 0x02 Berlin London Stockholm

This is the second time we will have a distributed meetup at King , and this time we will connect to 2 other locations, Berlin and London.

Thanks a lot King ( for hosting this event!

As usually, for access to King's offices we'll need access cards produced. Therefore we'll require your full name - nicknames will not be sufficient. If you haven't already submitted your real name to us, please do so. Thanks!

Due to the London timezone we will, again, start with the mingle part and have the talks from 19:00 to 21:00 Stockholm time.

The schedule:
• 17:30 Pre-session networking, pizza, drinks, and getting that good seat at the front

• 19:00 Talks from Stockholm and Berlin

Stockholm, Harald Achitz: Less is more, let's build a spaceship!
A tutorial covering some theory, concepts and implementation details about ordering and comparison of custom types in C++.
We will discuss today's situation and what we can probably expect in the near future.

Stockholm, Arvid Norberg: "Type safe flags"
A lightning talk

Berlin, Richard Spindler: GPU Computing and Image Processing with boost::compute
The "compute" library is part of boost since release[masked], and it provides a convenient interface to access GPU computing resources from C++. This Talk will give a short intro to the API, and how to compile programs with OpenCL support. Classic Image Processing algorithms will serve as an example use case for the introduction.

• 20:20 Talk(s) from London

London: Dominic Jones
"Expression tree transforms"

A methodology to implement compile time adjoint automatic differentiation. The differentiation merely sets the context; the vast majority of the talk would be about efficient tree manipulation using TMP algorithms


Timings are, as usually, approximate.
