This post will announce the “Best Session” ballot winners, share some trip reports, and announce the dates and location for C++Now 2019.

Keynote Speaker John Regehr

John Regehr will be the closing keynote for C++Now 2018 with Undefined Behavior and Compiler Optimizations.

John is a professor of computer science at the University of Utah, where his research group creates tools for making software more efficient and correct. One of his projects is Csmith, a tool that generates random C programs. Why? To test compilers, of course. Csmith has been used to find more than 500 previously unknown bugs in production-quality compilers.

John will share some of the insights he’s gained from his research into compilers.
