The goal of this group is to strengthen our local C++ community and promote C++ as a technology. We will accomplish this through several mechanisms:
• Organizing face-to-face meet-ups on a monthly basis
• Sharing our technical expertise with each other at our monthly meet-ups, on our mailing list, and through social media channels
• Engaging with local businesses and academic institutions who are stakeholders in C++ as a technology
Our monthly meet-ups will be both technical and social. From a technical perspective, we obviously would like to have all talks be related to C++. Examples of what we are interested in include:
• C++ the language and its governing standards
• Libraries: the STL, Boost, and other lesser known/specialized ones
• Programming paradigms in C++: OOP, Generic, Functional, Array/Vector Programming, etc.
• Applications (including application-specific frameworks) employing C++, with a particular emphasis on low-latency / high performance computing. Specific domains of interest include but are not limited to: Embedded, Robotics/Computer Vision, HFT/Finance, Games/Graphics, Automotive (particularly the self-driving variety), etc.
• Tools: Editors, compilers, debuggers, profilers, IDE's, etc. Currently, there is some industry-wide excitement around the LLVM project and its associated tooling for C++, so, sharing your knowledge of that stack would be of particular interest
• C++ in hybrid technology environments, specifically, things like: C++ and CUDA, wrapping/projecting a C++ library into another higher-level language (e.g., Python or MATLAB), etc.
We are always looking for speakers and sponsors. If you fall into either of these camps, please send a note to the mailing list and a group organizer will get in touch with you to set something up.
