Agile Safety-Critical C++

Hi everyone! This is a Meetup announcement on very short notice. The Meetup is scheduled Monday 2 pm. Robin Rowe is the CTO at a Los Angeles tech company named Gosh, and he is in The Netherlands for a few days. He has kindly offered to give his presentation on Agile Safety-Critical C++, which he gave at Code Camp in Los Angeles. 

Topic: Agile Safety-Critical C++

Space flight software, autonomous vehicles, smart traffic systems. Three examples of C++ in safety-critical systems, that is, systems where lives are at stake. As system complexity and our dependence on autonomous systems increases, it's more important than ever that software works reliably. With an accelerating rate of innovation, we have less time to develop such systems. And, the bar is being raised on expectations. For example, Department of Transportation Secretary Fox has set a goal of zero traffic fatalities in the U.S., for software that never makes a fatal mistake.

About the speaker: Robin Rowe

The Schedule

For an after lunch Meetup, probably something like:

2pm - Meetup somewhere (To be determined)

2.30pm - Agile Safety-Critical C++

3.30pm - Q&A / Social

For an evening Meetup, something more similar to previous Meetups. It also all depends on whether we can find a location, etc. :)


Thanks Copernica, for hosting us again! Above the nice view from their balcony. It's only a few minutes walking from Amsterdam CS and the location has always been great. The address is: De Ruijterkade 112, Amsterdam (click here to open in google maps).

    Ok thanks alot all, then it's going to be at Copernica at 2pm. It also seems that according to the poll Monday was actually best choice for the majority of people.. so see you then :)
    I've updated the Meetup text, and Thanks a lot Copernica for hosting on such short notice.

      You might want to edit this line in the meetup text, I almost missed the time switch for tomorrow: "The Meetup is currently scheduled on Monday 1pm"

    Is 2pm also okay? Or should I change it back to 1pm? If 2pm works out for everyone then we have a location!
