This is a discussion on Anyone going to CppCon? within the General Discussions forums, part of the Community Boards category; Is anyone here planning to go to CppCon ? I'll be giving a talk on cross-platform mobile development at Dropbox ...
BTW, while the video for our talk isn't up, the slides and tool we open-sourced for generating JNI and Obj-C++ language bridges is available: (slides here https://bitly.com/djinnitalk) the tool: http://bit.ly/djinnicode. Much thanks for the organizers of the conference for all the hard work and the invitation to present!
Hi everyone, our video is up! CppCon 2014: Alex Allain & Andrew Twyman "Practical Cross-Platform Mobile C++ Development" - YouTube
The rest of the CppCon talks are being posted over time on the CppCon talk: https://www.youtube.com/user/CppCon
There are lots of good ones. I particularly enjoyed Scott Meyers talk on type deduction: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQxj20X-tIU
Most of the slides for presentations are available on github too: https://github.com/CppCon/CppCon2014.../Presentations
^_^;No one can rock that hair cut like Scott can.
I don't know; a few of those Maybelline Moments had me thinking that he must be a living photoshop.

From now on a large part of your life will be spent finding and correcting your own mistakes.
And if you are lucky and land yourself a good job, a whole lot more time will be spent finding and correcting other people's mistakes.
That has to be good, no?
