Student/Volunteer Program Now Accepting Applications

In 2013, the conference launched a Student/Volunteer Program to enable young coders to attend the conference. This year, we are again inviting students with an interest in C++ to attend the May 12-17, 2014 conference in Aspen, CO as Student/Volunteers. The program is an excellent way for students with any interest in C++ to learn about C++ and make lasting connections with the C++ community.

“Attending has truly been one of the most inspirational moments of my life. I had the opportunity to learn, socialize and have a great time in general. I hope to attend this conference yearly now and make a lasting impact in the computer science community.” — Grant Mercer, 2013 Student/Volunteer – read more

“All of the attendees had knowledge to share. Although the talks can be seen online, nothing can compare to being surrounded by over a hundred C++ enthusiasts.” — Alex Duchene, 2013 Student/Volunteer – read more

A limited number of Student/Volunteers will receive free registration and some may receive stipends for expenses.

Volunteers will handle various tasks during the conference, such as assisting presenters, setting up presentation rooms, running A/V equipment and helping with the conference picnic.

Students from all fields of study are welcome to apply. However, this conference covers advanced C++ topics, and applicants should have ample experience with the C++ programming language and be familiar with general computer science topics.

Applications will be accepted until February 15th, 2014.

Application decisions will be sent out by March 18th, 2014.

You can apply and/or learn more about the program and some of the students who have participated here.
