Who's in for a C++ luncheon? On our November meeting, Sergey Dorodnic will explain and demonstrate how to get started with open-source cross-platform C++. CMake, Catch2, GitHub, CI etc. - they're in. Are you?

12:00 to 12:30 - Pizza courtesy of Intel RealSense. Thank you Intel!
12:30 to 13:30 - Getting Started with Open-Source Cross-Platform C++
13:30 to 13:45 - Wrap-up and raffle

This talk will offer a set of simple tools you may find useful when starting a C++ project. C++ is "no batteries included" language, so build-systems, libraries and frameworks do not receive much attention while being critical to real-life projects.
We are going to build from scratch a cross-platform C++ library with unit-tests, GUI and possibly some python bindings, all using nothing but free and open-source tools. You will learn how to use CMake to build your code for Windows, Linux and Mac, how to set-up Continuous Integration environment in the cloud and more.

Sergey Dorodnic is a software team-lead at Intel RealSense and the maintainer of . Sergey blogs about all things programming at but has a special soft-spot for C++.
