Wrapping up C++Now 2019 and announcing C++Now 2020

C++Now 2019 was an exhilarating experience for all attendees. The weather was not always perfect (although it was for the picnic), all the Compile Time Magic keynotes were well received, we had a lot of new faces, and the energy was fresh and exciting.

This post will announce the “Best Session” ballot winners, share some trip reports, and announce the dates and location for C++Now 2020.

The theme of this year’s keynotes is Compile-time Magic and the first keynote that we are announcing is Hana Dusíková’s presentation of a library that performs at compile-time, work that is often done at runtime.

Hana’s keynote is entitled Compile Time Regular Expressions with Deterministic Finite Automaton.
