Interested in C++ present and future? Want to improve your skills and knowledge - or just hang out with like-minded individuals? This group is part of the worldwide network of C++ experts, professionals and amateurs (https://meetingcpp.com/usergroups/) who like to discuss the state of C++, what we can do with it, and how we can do it better. We welcome people from *all* parts of the community - very much including those that identify as minorities.
Our aim is to meet once a month with talks and potentially other activities.
This month we welcome back Gašper Ažman, who's going to talk to us about the upcoming tag_invoke feature and how to use it.
We'll, once again, be meeting online. Details for joining will be added shortly - make sure you register to get updates.
We're also interested in a few lightning talks, or another shorter talk (up to 30 mins). ---> http://cppldn.uk/speak
19:00 Phil Nash - Intro and News
19:10 (TBA: lightning talks/ other talk)
Then: Gašper Ažman - 'tag_invoke :: niebloids evolved (or "finally, a good way to do customization points")'
tag_invoke is the new (and awesome) way to do customization points in C++ that does not take up global names, is extensible, fast, and precise. This talk will teach you how to employ this soon-to-be-standard mechanism in your own code.
About the speaker:
Gašper has been trying to have the compiler prove his code since 2008, and it's been going better of late. He has written code for the web, backends, and research tools, for UC Berkeley, A9.com (http://a9.com/), and currently Citadel. He has corrected proofs in "From Mathematics to Generic Programming", and frequently attends C++ conferences.
If you have an idea for a talk or other type of session - any length - please let me know via: http://cppldn.uk/speak.
