In addition to excellent technical instruction and amazing alpine views, C++Now is also an incubator for innovative ideas in C++ language design and library development. Similar to other events historically held at the Aspen Center For Physics, C++Now is a catalyst for collaboration amongst some of the most creative minds in C++. I can attribute a significant portion of my personal success as a software engineer and consultant to the ideas I have gleaned, and the contacts I have made from attending this conference over the years.
