The C++Now Conference is dedicated to discussion and learning about C++, an open and free language and standard, open source software usage, and developments in the C++ developer and user community.
To reflect the breadth of the C++ and Boost communities, the conference includes sessions aimed at three constituencies: C++ and Boost end-users, cutting edge 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 participatory sessions.
As a multi-paradigm language, C++ is a melting pot of the most compelling ideas from other programming communities blending 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.
C++Now 2017 will be the 6th event with the name "C++Now" following five years when we were called "BoostCon."
