Looking for an interactive way to learn modern C++? Have a look at my in-person training at CppNorth 2023:

Meet me in Toronto!

#cpp #CppNorth #training

In today’s @CppNorth talk "Using Sender/Receiver to Implement Control Flow for Async Processing" (9 AM MDT), Steve Downey will explore how the components & connectors for C++26's Sender/Receiver framework are to fit together
#cpp #cpp26 #cplusplus #CppNorth

We are excited to have Bill Hoffman speaking about CMake at the CppNorth conference. His talk covers the latest in C++20 modules in #CMake. For more information, visit: #cpp #CppNorth

In today’s @CppNorth talk "Exceptionally Bad" (11:00 AM MDT), Peter Muldoon will discuss the original intent of exceptions & how their mechanics work, as well as cases of exception misuse + some better ways to handle each situation
#cpp #cplusplus #CppNorth

In today’s @CppNorth talk "C++ Modules” (2:30 PM MDT), @Bloomberg’s Daniel Ruoso will explore the challenges that header units, as specified in C++20, create for implementers, plus some possible solutions to those challenges
#cpp20 #cpp #cplusplus #CppNorth

During tonight's lightning talks session at @CppNorth (8 PM MDT), @Bloomberg engineer Chris Fretz will share some fascinating tricks that can be used to simulate modern C++ features in older standards

It's nice to have people on campus again! C++ is happening now! Check out their video from past years at the Center: #CppNorth @CppNorth #cpp #cpp23

In today’s @CppNorth talk "Requirements for C++ Successor Languages" (9:00 AM MDT), @Bloomberg engineer @bretbrownjr will discuss how to consider the feasibility & velocity in converting existing #cplusplus projects to the Next Big Thing
#cpp #CppNorth #cpp20

Off I go to #CppNorth! The estimated travel time is 27 hours. Excited to give a talk about BLADE, the GPU-based beamforming pipeline of the Allen Telescope Array.

I'll be airing grievances about integers at #CppNorth in Aspen in May I got a lot of problems with you people and now you're gonna hear about it!

The CppNorth 2023 Call for Submissions is now open!


Today, during @CppNorth 2022 (11 AM MDT), Peter Muldoon will share some of the key lessons he's learned about how to successfully redesign a legacy system during his 30-year career as a software engineer
#cplusplus #cpp #CppNorth

The style of `const unsigned int` is named "const west". `unsigned int const` is "east const". This style debate has split the C++ community. My compromise style was rejected, I feel, without sufficient consideration -- central const: `unsigned const int`. #CppNorth

Moving an Existing Project to C++ 20 for Fun, Beauty… and Results!

11:00 - 12:00 Monday 17th July 2023 EDT Kensington

So our company has an existing codebase and decided to make the move to C++20. What does that mean?

Taking (a deliberately reduced version of) an existing, real-life system, a system that works and has evolved over time with its strengths and downsides, we will see how using some of what C++20 has to offer can change the ways in which we program and how we look at the code we write. Maybe this will even make our code more pleasant to read... and faster to run!

Patrice Roy

ProfessorUniversité de Sherbrooke / Collège Lionel-Groulx

Patrice Roy has been playing with C++, either professionally, for pleasure or (most of the time) both for over 30 years. After a few years doing R&D and working on military flight simulators, he moved on to academics and has been teaching computer science since 1998. Since 2005, he’s been involved more specifically in helping graduate students and professionals from the fields of real-time systems and game programming develop the skills they need to face today’s challenges.

He’s been a participating member in the ISO C++ Standards Committee since late 2014 and has been involved with the ISO Programming Language Vulnerabilities since late 2015. He has five kids, and his wife ensures their house is home to a continuously changing numbers of cats, dogs and other animals.
