C++Now 2024 Early Video Access – Just $150! 30 Day Minimum Exclusive Access

Access 50+ C++ Talks Through Our Early Access Portal!

Purchase An EA Video Pass Here: https://na.eventscloud.com/789034 Early Video Access can be purchased for just $150! This gives you access to all 50+ main presentations, plus ALL lightning talk sessions that took place at this years event, for a minimum period of at least 30 days of exclusivity ahead of the public releases to YouTube. You will be accessing the edited and polished final videos that will subsequently be released on the YouTube channel, but without having to wait until the individual release dates of each session.
  • Videos will start releasing to the C++Now YouTube channel at least 30 days after the first videos are available in the early access system, ensuring a minimum period of exclusive access of at least 30 days for anyone who purchases an EA pass.
  • Sessions will be released to the YouTube channel on a schedule of 3 videos a week, as such, some videos will remain in Early Access longer than others. Particularly those that occured later in the schedule, as we usually aim to release the videos in schedule order. Therefore some videos won't be released publicly for at least 3-4 months. If you can't wait to watch these sessions, the early access programme has you covered.
  • The Early Access videos are served through our new, intuitive early access portal and video filtering system. This allows users to easily search and filter through the available videos to find those they are most interested in, or that relate most to their area of expertise. Videos can be searched by topic/subject, sub-topic, Speaker and more.
  • As videos are released to the YouTube channel, they will simultaneously become publicly accessible on the EA Portal. Once all videos have been released, the system will persist as a public facing video filtering system, allowing visitors to search through the archive of videos uploaded to the C++Now YouTube channel (videos from previous years will be added in batches as we move forward), with or without an account or pass. As we move forward, each year's videos will follow this same process, with all videos ending up in the video archive system for anyone to access as they please.
  Your purchase of an EA registration helps fund this initiative and the end goal of creating a free to use, publically accessible interface for easily searching through the catalogue of videos/sessions from all C++Now events The system is built and maintained by Digital Medium Ltd, who are also working with other events such as ACCU and CppCon to offer a similar outcome, with the end goal of creating a communal interface where users can search a database of videos across all C++ Conferences that are enrolled in the system. This will become a free to use, public facing resource available to all developers. To Purchase an EA Pass, please visit our registration page: https://na.eventscloud.com/789034

C++Now Keynote: Development tools: Past, Present and Future – Marshall Clow

C++Now Keynote: Development tools: Past, Present and Future – Marshall Clow

Development tools: Past, Present and Future

https://schedule.cppnow.org/session/development-tools-past-present-and-future/
We are tool-using animals.  We create tools to improve our lives.  As software developers, we use tools to make better software. They enable us to do things that we have never done before.  But they also limit the things that we can do.
In this talk, I will explore the history of development tools, talk about how people have dealt with limitations in their tools (including writing new tools), and how the last decade has seen an explosion of new, more powerful tools.
New tools are being written all the time. What does the future hold? More tools, certainly. Better tools, certainly. But what kind of tools? I don't claim to know the future, but I will offer some (hopefully) thought-provoking ideas.
Marshall Clow Marshall has been writing code for more than 40 years. He has been writing open source code for 20+ years. He contributes to Boost (since 2002), was the tech lead for libc++ for many years, and was the chair of the Library Working Group of the C++ standards committee.

C++Now Keynote: Employing Senders and Receivers to Tame Concurrency in Embedded Systems

C++Now Keynote: Employing Senders and Receivers to Tame Concurrency in Embedded Systems

Employing Senders and Receivers to Tame Concurrency in Embedded Systems

https://schedule.cppnow.org/session/employing-senders-and-receivers-to-tame-concurrency-in-embedded-systems/

Concurrency and asynchronicity are notoriously hard in baremetal systems which often provide few abstractions. One core, a few interrupt driven events, and communication that may produce errors or require cancellation and now we have a concurrency beast. Typical approaches range from ignoring the problem to inefficient and hard to maintain implementations. Senders and Receivers offers much in the solution space but is it the silver bullet we have wanted? This talk shows how to use the Senders and Receivers pattern to solve increasingly more complex problems. We will use Intel's open source baremetal senders and receivers library as well as other open source packages to build elegant, declarative solutions to historically complex problems. Our target will be an ARM based development board controlling several devices. While this talk is focused on concurrency in the embedded baremetal domain, the problems addressed and solutions showcased are applicable to many areas. Please join me as we explore how Senders and Receivers can be employed to tame the concurrency beast in event driven systems. Michael Caisse Michael started using C++ with embedded systems in 1990. He continues to be passionate about combing his degree in Electrical Engineering with elegant software solutions and is always excited to share his discoveries with others. Michael is a Principal Engineer at Intel where he works with a talented team putting magic into silicon. When he isn't fighting with compilers or robots, he enjoys fencing with a sabre.   View The Full Schedule Here Join Us in Aspen, Colorado USA for C++Now 2024. 50+ Confirmed C++ Sessions, 3 Keynotes & Lightning Talks Await You!

C++Now Keynote: C++ Painkillers: The Evolution of C++ Toolability – Anastasia Kazakova

C++Now Keynote: C++ Painkillers: The Evolution of C++ Toolability – Anastasia Kazakova

C++Now Keynote: C++ Painkillers: The Evolution of C++ Toolability

https://schedule.cppnow.org/session/cpp-painkillers-the-evolution-of-cpp-toolability/ The C++ language is among the most powerful yet challenging programming languages in the world. You see it every day in everything around you. From embedded devices to operating systems, and from trading robots to telecommunication devices and protocols, it sets the stage for all other software and tasks. The importance of systems created with C++ and the requirements set for it put immense pressure on C++ developers. How well do we treat C++ developers? Do they have a safe and easy environment where they can focus on their core tasks? In the Annual C++ Developer Survey Lite conducted by the C++ Foundation, the community identified a number of major pain points when working with C++. The top five pain points for C++ developers have nothing to do with the language itself, but instead focus on: 1) Managing dependencies. 2) Setting up CI/CD pipelines. 3) Build times. 4) Dealing with CMake. 5) Setting up toolchains and IDEs. With the top C++ pain points being all about the tools, let’s discuss if the language has become more toolable throughout its evolution, what the state of its toolability is today, and how it’s going to change tomorrow. We’ll discuss what prevents C++ from being easily toolable, especially compared to other languages, highlight several examples where tools play a crucial role in the adoption of new language additions, and see how language creators started considering tooling along with language improvements. We’ll review a toolset addressing the top C++ pain points from the Annual C++ Developer Survey Lite and identify some tools we still wish we had. Anastasia Kazakova As a C and C++ software developer, Anastasia Kazakova created real-time *nix-based systems and pushed them to production for 8 years. She worked as an intern in Microsoft Research, Networking department, outsourced in Telecom, and launched the 4G network. She has a passion for networking algorithms and embedded programming and believes in good tooling. With all her love for C++, she is now the Product Marketing Manager on the JetBrains C++ tools and .NET marketing teams.
