What do C++ programmers think about these days? Perhaps the new features from C++0x that are becoming commonly available and that introduce fundamental changes in how C++ software is designed. Perhaps the increasing importance of developing effective concurrent systems. Perhaps the continuing pressure to create high-performance software. Possibly the impact of new systems programming languages such as D. Most likely, all of the above, and more.
C++ legends Scott Meyers, Herb Sutter, and Andrei Alexandrescu think about these things, too — all the time. Scott and Herb are neck-deep in C++0x, while Andrei is literally writing the book on D (The D Programming Language). Herb and Andrei put the pedal to the metal on applied concurrency and parallelism; Herb is writing the book on that topic (Effective Concurrency). All three focus on the development of high-performance systems, a topic Scott’s writing a book about (Fastware!).
This October, Scott, Herb, and Andrei will host an intensive three-day technical event focusing on “C++ and Beyond” — an examination of issues related to C++ and its application in high-performance (typically highly concurrent) systems, as well as related technologies of likely interest to C++ programmers. To maximize the opportunities for Scott, Herb, and Andrei to interact with event participants, attendance is limited to 60 people.

Sometimes emergencies come up. If you have to cancel, please notify us at least 30 days before the event and we will issue a full refund. Within 30 days of the event, we'll still issue a full refund if we can replace you with somebody on the waiting list; otherwise, there will be a cancellation fee of $500 if we cannot fill the spot from the waiting list.
