The agenda is as follows:

  • 18:00: Sandwiches.
  • 18:30: Session 1: Strongly Typed Declarative Bitsets in C++17 (Ewoud van Craeynest)
    The C++ standard states that bool values behave as integral types, that they participate in integral promotions and conversions.
    As a community, we reached the consensus that those integral types aren’t particularly type safe. So, neither are our bools, neither are our bitsets, nor the bits within a bitset. Numbers just being numbers can lead to subtle bugs and impede merciless refactoring.
    This session aims to introduce a strongly typed, declarative bitset type using C++17, by looking at a strongly typed bool and template offset bitfields first.
  • 19:30: Break
  • 19:45: Session 2: The Observer pattern and boost.signals2 (Lieven de Cock)
    The Observer pattern, is one of the many famous GOF design patterns. We will take a look at a minimal implementation, and then enhance that implementation a bit. We briefly touch some potential problems and think about options on how to deal with them. Then we look at a way of avoiding boiler plate code, by using the boost.signals2 library. This header-only boost library will take care of much administration work so we don’t need to reinvent the wheel. No prior knowledge is needed of the observer design pattern, nor the boost.signals2 library.
    Just bring your C++ (11-14-17) skills and … observe.
  • 20:45: Introduction to Amplidata, followed by a drink.
