Juni Talk Peter Steinbach: "Using C++ from Python - a talk from the trenches"

Hello C++ Fellows,

For our Juni meetup Check24 is sponsoring the central location next to Dresden main train station and some pizza again. This time we will start off with the pizza eating at 19:00. At 19:30 Peter Steinbach will talk about Python and C++.

Peter Steinbach
Abstract:
Today's IT world is polyglot. Every domain, be it methodologies or disciplines of science, industry or culture, has their own programming language at heart where most of the knowledge and progress is made persistent. As time goes by, preferences change, but the expertise should be retained at minimal cost. This talk discusses techniques to build such a bridge between python and C++. I'll present my experiences in an open-source project and try to explore the technical details behind the scenes. I'll finish the presentation with a live demo if time allows.
After the talk he is ready to answer your questions.

Date: Tuesday, 12. Juni 2018
Start: 19:00
End: 21:30
Place: Check24 Dresden, Prager Str. 3, 01069 Dresden (5th floor, follow the signs)

May Talk: "Capture the Flag - Learning Security by Example" by Mal

Hello Everybody,

In May we have to leave our regular schedule and return to the SLUB once more.
Mal has agreed to give us some insights into security hacking.

Capture the Flag (CTF) is a kind of IT security competition and it offers an accessible practical
introduction to this field. The goal of such a competition is to gather points by solving tasks
and obtaining a flag as a proof. Tasks typically belong to a certain category such as Binary
Exploitation, Reverse Engineering, Web or Cryptography. The harder the task is, the more points it
is worth.
This talk starts by providing a short overview of CTF.
After that, a typical Binary Exploitation task gets analyzed and solved.
Finally, an exploit will be developed for a recent real world bug.

Date: Wednesday, 23. May 2018
Start: 19:30
End: 21:30
Place: SLUB Dresden, Zellescher Weg 18, 01069 Dresden

Please invite all the C++ peers around you!

Cheers!
Andreas

April Vortrag: Jessica Parth „Performante Datenverarbeitung von großen Reisedaten.“

Hello C++ Developers,

CHECK24 wird unser April Meetup hosten. Jessica Parth hält einen Vortrag mit folgendem Inhalt.

CHECK24 stellt sich und ihr Dresdner Projekt vor. Es gibt eine kurze Einführung in den Reisemarkt und dann schauen wir uns die Technik dahinter an. Der offene touristische Datenstandard basiert auf XML und bildet die Daten-Grundlage. Pro Anbieter müssen täglich 100+ GB Daten verarbeitet werden. In ein paar hundert Millisekunden müssen aus 10+ Millionen Flügen und 10+ Tausend Zimmern die richtigen Paare gefunden werden, dazu bestimmen bis zu 25.000 Regeln pro Flug und Zimmer den Preis. Welche weiteren Herausforderungen ergeben sich noch? Wir stellen unsere Lösung und Systemlandschaft dafür vor.
Der Vortrag wird in deutsch gehalten. Für Essen und Getränke wird gesorgt.

Die Eckdaten:

Termin: Donnerstag, 12. April 2018
Beginn: 19:00 Uhr
Ende: Offen
Ort: Check24 Dresden, Prager Str. 3, 01069 Dresden (5. Etage, Schildern folgen)
Anmeldung über Meetup
