In addition to my pre-conference class, I’m presenting two talks this year, both reprises (with updates) from C++Now. Tuesday morning will be Fancy Pointers for Fun and Profit, and Wednesday morning will be Fast Conversion from UTF-8 with C++, DFAs, and SSE Intrinsics.
The purpose of the poster session is to encourage innovation and foster communication. With all the different kinds of talks — plenaries, keynotes, sessions, panels, open content, and lightning talks — we have lots of great ways to share ideas. And as great as those ways are, that kind of sharing is also ephemeral. After the words are spoken, they’re gone, at least until the talks show up on YouTube. In contrast, posters provide a persistent medium for sharing knowledge throughout the week, one that enriches the whole CppCon experience. Don’t forget that accepted poster presentations will have their conference registration fee refunded (one presenter per poster).
The poster submissions deadline is August 5th, with decisions sent by August 13th. For topic ideas, submission instructions, and advice on making the best possible submission, see the Poster Submissions page.
CppCon is the annual, week-long, face-to-face gathering for the entire C++ community, organized by C++ the community for the C++ community. This is an outstanding conference for the professional C++ programmer, and I’m proud to serve as its Poster Chair.
Proposals for talks at CppCon 2018 are now being accepted, through May 11, with decisions sent by July 1. To submit a proposal, see the guidelines on the Call For Submissions page.
I’m also very pleased to announce that I’ll be teaching a 2-day class at CppCon 2018 entitled Interface Design for Modern C++. The conference itself is Monday September 24th through Friday September 28th; my class will be held the weekend before the conference, on Saturday the 22nd and Sunday the 23rd.

I’m very pleased to announce that I’ll be presenting three talks this year at C++Now 2018:
- Fast Conversion From UTF-8 with C++, DFAs, and SSE Intrinsics
- Fancy Pointers for Fun and Profit
- If I Had My ‘Druthers: A Proposal for Improving the Containers in C++2x
This is my second time attending C++Now; I attended for the first time last year when I gave a talk entitled “Testing the Limits of Allocator Awareness“. Here’s the video for you allocator nerds… 🙂 This is the conference to attend for an in-depth and technical C++ experience like no other.
