Hi everyone!

It's been a while but thanks to Tim (our previous quiz winner!) we are now in touch with Barbara Geller & Ansel Sermersheim (speakers at CppCon 2018)! And thanks to Odin Holmes (also speaker) for coining the idea at this event to organize a Meetup at our group! Victor (our previous quiz master) generously offered to host the Meetup at his company (https://summitto.com) which is located in the B Building. Thanks :)

Ansel and Barbara are passing through on their way to emBO++ - The C++
conference in Bochum. Organized every year by Odin Holmes. It looks like there are still tickets by the way! (www.embo.io date is 14th to the 17th of March).

Thanks again and I hope everybody can come on this Monday!

Abstract
------------
We will discuss what constitutes a function overload and the process the compiler follows to decipher which overload function or method to call. The rules are complex and we will condense this section of the standard to the essential rules every programmer should be aware of. Knowing how overload resolution works will improve your ability to debug compile errors and improve the API for your classes. You will learn the meaning of buzzwords like implicit conversion, standard conversions, and tie-breakers.
