René Richter will give his talk at our traditional location the Wu5 student club for our November meetup.
He will answer the questions:

"How did we get there and how to use them?"


Every programming languange comes with a system for data and types, static or dynamic, strict or relaxed.
To understand where we did come from might affect our ability to go on in with modern C++.
In 2017 optional, variant and any were introduced.
The (short) presentation is intended to start a discussion around
* How do these vocabulary types fit into the type system?
* Is the type system now complete?
* What about the proposed Expected and other ways to return function results / exceptions in future versions of C++?

Please feel invited to join the discussion afterwards.
