Scott Meyers • Herb Sutter • Andrei Alexandrescu
C++ and Beyond is a small, conference-like event built around intensive technical sessions by Scott Meyers, Herb Sutter, and Andrei Alexandrescu, but designed also to facilitate the exchange of experiences and insights among the unusually talented developers who attend.
Technical sessions focus on topics of special interest to professional developers where Andrei, Herb, and Scott have expertise. Topics in past years have included CPU caches, lambda expressions, move semantics, CAS-based concurrency, variadic templates, the C++11 memory model, GPGPU programming, code optimization techniques, and the C++11 threading API. For details, consult the full schedules for C&B 2010, C&B 2011, C&B 2012, C&B 2013, and C&B 2014, as well as the selected videos from prior C++ and Beyonds.
Scott’s, Herb’s, and Andrei’s backgrounds vary, but these C++ legends have three things in common. First, they’re interested not just in C++, but in how its power can be applied to real and challenging problems. Second, they have an uncanny ability to explain complex technical material. Most importantly, they know how to create an event of enormous value to professional C++ developers, regardless of whether their experience with the language spans one or two years or one or two decades.
