After a long break, we're happy to announce a new CPPDUG meetup. John McFarlane has kindly offered to do another talk for our group. Our aim is to continue delivering high quality technical content, so get ready for another C/C++ Monday evening!
The meetup will be sponsored by Arista Networks (https://www.arista.com/) in their Dublin office, who have kindly offered to provide food and drinks for the evening.
Talk title: The Secret Life of Numbers
Description: They say that 'data expands to fill the space available for storage'. That goes double for numbers — of which there are many. This talk will present my view of numeric types as spans over an infinite range of digits. I'll use this perspective to explore some popular topics in C++ such as compile-time evaluation, fixed-point arithmetic and undefined behavior. While the audience is distracted by ones and zeros, I will flash up subliminal messages compelling them to use my Compositional Numeric Library.
Talk duration: 60 minutes
Our meetups are open to everyone and we welcome and support diversity. Any form of harassment or discrimination will not be tolerated and we will investigate any reports of such activities and take any action required to prevent them from recurring. Our code of conduct is available here https://cppdug.github.io/codeofconduct and we encourage anyone to share any concerns with the organisers.
