As a backup for meeting notices please also subscribe here: and here:

We do C++ Q&A on, in succession: recommended books, pre-asked questions, code marked "TODO??:" in, possibly the (design of the menu system, or user input), and finally we field attendees' questions.

Come join us, in our long-standing collaborative community of dedicated programmers as we discuss and stare at QtCreator, VS, VScode IDEs in 1080P resolution.

Mentors Needed! - What to share your expert C++ knowledge to help people, and be appreciated by your peers, and be known for your knowledge? We need teachers and mentors. Our volunteer mentors benefit from teaching practice, as well as hearing and learning alternative approaches from their fellow mentor's views, and the questions asked by the learners (students) during a session.

Do you know everything you want/need to know about C++? Whether yes or no, this meeting may still be for you. Want to be better at programming and technical verbal communication?

Please be early! To set up your computer microphone volume and clarity, login, and network with us. The structured meeting will formally start 10 minutes after the posted time.

The online Zoom video conference link is shown on this announcement by at some point before the meeting.

For text "chat" and formatted "code copy/pasting" during the meeting, do not use Zoom or chat. Instead, login (using probably your github account) and use this free and long-term unlimited chat system called with the subsystem

We will have a break at about halfway for meetings that run 2 hours, and also other creative features to inspire and engage the group. :)

We don't do lectures, if someone is talking, someone asked a question and wants the answer, and is listening. You can even interrupt, if you didn't hear or understand what is being said. Or stay silent, lurkers are welcome.

No charge, this a labor of love on the part of the active participants.

For our recommended reading list, please see the about page of this meetup.

Group Culture and Meeting Facilitation -
We discuss deeply technical specifics regarding Modern C++ and how to modernize code up to that standard. Introductory and advanced questions and answers are interleaved with the goal of everyone getting some benefit moment to moment. All questions simple or advanced are treated with respect. All answers/replies/comments and asides are considered, challenged, and supplemented by everyone in the group. We are highly interactive, and we sit around a huge table to facilitate quality communication. No one is required to speak, but can when you are comfortable doing so. The moderator of the group is very proactive in keeping the discussion understandable, focused, on topic and moving forward, as well as creating space for people to speak and express their technical ideas. We aim for highly productive, highly interactive learning.

One thing that makes us truly different is that attendees can/should publicly challenge and or criticize the moderator during the course of the meeting, not afterwards. If you think something is not being explained well, you can't read someone's handwriting, someone is going too fast, or the meeting is getting off track, you can say something. We will not be crushed, nor will we retaliate with anger, nor with passive aggressive behaviors, nor retribution. S/he works to facilitate excellent, efficient, flexible and responsive events and part of this means inviting audience feedback even when it is not 'ego enhancing'. However you must not aggressively question other attendees, or mentors, since they have not generally agreed to be public criticized.

Suggested IDE - We will be using primarily the QtCreator editor with the install options shown here: You can download the open-source Qt product here:

Please consider reading especially the C++ page to understand our procedures and ie. )

NOTE: Any code you direcly share with us will be presumed to be your code with a Boost 1.0 license unless you say otherwise.
