Keynote Speaker Dave Abrahams

Generic programming and first-class value semantics are two of the greatest ideas to ever come out of the C++ world. To many of us, they are so fundamental as to be taken for granted—but how much of what we know is actually a product of “thinking in C++?” As I discovered when developing Swift, for me it was quite a lot. In this talk, we’ll step away from the constraints of today’s C++ to see what more we can learn about the essence of these ideas, and see what happens when you design language features around those insights.
