C++Now! 2012 Conference Highlights

C++ Now! (formerly BoostCon) is pleased to announce its 2012 program with 35+ inspiring C++ practitioners delivering more than fifty technical sessions.  In honor of the release of the new C++11 standard, this May’s conference will, for the first time, be offered in three tracks.

In addition to the sessions that attendees have come to expect—on topics like library design and usage, programming techniques, best practices, academic research, development tools, concurrency, reliability, and performance—this year’s program includes a full track devoted to C++11 and three keynotes by industry luminaries.

For those eager to get on board with the new standard, the C++11 content features fifteen hours of tutorial material covering the most important new features and APIs, presented, in many cases, by the language designers themselves.  C++ Now! is offering the most complete C++11 tutorial coverage of any conference this year!

Conference speakers include book and library authors, academics, C++ Standard Committee members, tool builders, architects, and engineers. With our very high presenter-to-audience ratio, attendees will have ample opportunity for one-on-one interaction with leaders who are currently defining the state of the art in C++.

Dave Abrahams, the conference co-chair, writes, “We planned for an expansion, but even I am surprised at the presenter response and the resulting depth of this year’s program.  I’m preparing for a flood of new attendees.”
