Event Details

It has come to our attention that some attendees are having trouble with Google Checkout. We are in the process of setting up PayPal as an alternative billing method but prefer people to use Google Checkout when possible.

Based on the successful traditions of five years of BoostCon, which has been the main face-to-face event for all things C++ and Boost, C++Now! 2012 will present leading speakers from the whole C++ community. The conference name is changing to C++ Now! to reflect the current value of the language, the focus on its new state (from the new C++11 Standard), and the need to continually look to the future so the language remains useful to the C++ community.

The focus of this conference will be the new C++11 language Standard and, as usual, Boost: what’s new in C++, its Standard library, and in the Boost libraries; how to write and maintain Boost libraries; how to evangelize or to deploy Boost within your organization; and more. No matter what you are interested in, from the C++11 to the infrastructure and process of Boost or its vision and mission, it all comes together in the C++Now! sessions. Meet colleagues and feel the inspiration to support your work with C++ and Boost for the next year.

The C++ Now! Conference is dedicated to the discussion and teaching of C++, an open and free language and standard, as well as of open source software usage and developments in the C++ developer and user communities. To reflect the breadth of the C++ and Boost communities, the conference includes sessions aimed at three constituencies: C++ and Boost end-users, hard-core Boost library and tool developers, and researchers pushing the boundaries of computation. The program fosters interaction and engagement within and across those groups, with an emphasis on hands-on, participatory sessions.

As a multi-paradigm language, C++ is a melting pot where the most compelling ideas from other programming communities are blended in powerful ways.  Historically, some of the most popular sessions at C++Now! have highlighted these concepts, from DSLs to functional programming to transactional memory and more.  Bring your C#, Python, Ruby, Haskell, or other language influences to bear in an environment that will broaden their exposure.

Full conference registration fee of $599 before April 15th, 2012 (US) includes:

  • Participation in all sessions
  • All conference materials
  • Opening Reception
  • Morning and afternoon refreshment breaks
  • Thursday evening barbecue social

On or after April 15th, the conference registration fee will be $699.
