Wrapping up C++Now 2021 and announcing C++Now 2022

C++Now 2021 was our first and only online conference experience. With over two hundred attendees, we exceeded our previous attendance record by sixty percent.

Attendees, many of whom are new to C++Now, enjoyed the Gather Town virtual environment. But the commonly expressed sentiment was a desire to be able to meet together in our Aspen home.

This post will announce the “Best Session” ballot winners and announce the dates and location for C++Now 2022.
