September Presentation: "Improve your C++ with inspirations from other languages"

Hello C++ Fanatics,

Did you master all of C++? Learnt all the features, read all the proposals and crave for more?
This is the talk for you and everybody who is just curious to learn some complementary features.
Many attempts were tried to defeat C++ with new languages, but C++ is only getting stronger.
New C++ features are sometimes a bit late, but we learnt by the success and mistakes of the other languages.
That way we got the fastest and best lambda implementation.
In this talk, I will collect desirable features of other programming languages and frameworks.
The goal is not to create new C++ proposals, but to understand the potentials and try them with current C++.
I will give the presentation in English.

Date: Thursday, 14. September 2017
Start: 20:00
End: 21:30 (continued discussions with a beer)
Place: Studentenclub Wu5, August-Bebel-Straße 12, 01219 Dresden

We still need an October talk or we will have to skip the month.

Happy coding!

Feel free to distribute this invitation to everybody who likes to extend his programming portfolio.

Juli Session: "Modernize your C++" von Andreas Reischuck

Hallo an alle Wissbegierigen,

Nachdem wir jetzt die letzten beiden Monate erfolgreich Coding Dojos durchgeführt haben, gibt es genug Stoff für eine Zusammenfassung.

Ich habe mir die Mühe gemacht, die verworfenen Ansätze des Objekt Orientierten Designs nochmal aufzugreifen und zu implementieren. Den von uns bisher bevorzugten Value und Service basierten Ansatz habe ich auch weiter ausgebaut.

Die praktisches C++14 & C++17 Features und Meta Programmierung die ich dafür eingesetzt habe, möchte ich euch gerne vorstellen. Sofern noch Zeit und Interesse vorhanden, können wir auch einen Blick auf eine Lösung in D werfen.

Insgesamt sollte dabei wieder für jeden etwas Neues dabei sein, um den Horizont zu erweitern. Ich freue mich auch schon auf euer Feedback und weitere Ideen.

Die Eckdaten:

Termin: Donnerstag, 13. Juli 2017
Beginn: 19:30 Uhr
Ende: Offen
Ort: HicknHack Software GmbH, Bayreuther Str. 32, 01187 Dresden
Anmeldung: Meetup oder Facebook (nicht erforderlich)

Bitte merkt euch schon mal den Termin für den August vor. Neben dem spannenden Vortrag von Roland Bock konnte ich auch einen Sponsor für das eine oder andere gekühlte Getränk gewinnen.

Ladet dafür am Besten gleich alle Leute mit ein die sich für C++ interessieren!

Hitzige Grüße
Andreas Reischuck

PS. Für September und Oktober suchen wir noch jeweils einen Vortrag! Bitte melden!

August Intro: "Template Magic for Beginners" by Roland Bock

Hello C++ Crowd,

I am very proud to present our special guest Roland Bock for the August meetup.
He's going to drive all the way from Munich to Dresden to give us an introduction to C++ Template Magic.

Roland is the main author and maintainer of the sqlpp11 library.
I first met him at Meeting C++ in 2015 and was impressed by both his template tricks as well as his presentation skills.

He wrote the following abstract for his talk:
Many expert talks on C++ simply assume that you know your way around Template Meta Programming (TMP) and jump right into it. Sometimes the presented code and functionality will almost seem like arcane magic to the untrained eye.
In this talk I will give you an introduction to commonly employed TMP techniques like partial specializations, SFINAE, type traits, tag dispatch, and CRTP. The talk will include real world examples and hints as to how some of these techniques are influenced by the development of the language.
You won't become a template wizard within this one hour, but you will have a better idea of what is going on the next time you encounter TMP. And maybe you will develop an appetite for exploring the world of TMP yourself?
Please seize this opportunity and invite everybody who might appreciate a bit of C++ template magic.

Roland intends to present this talk at international conferences as well, so it'll be held in English.

Date: Thursday, 10. August 2017
Start: 20:00
End: 21:30 (continued discussions with a beer)
Place: Studentenclub Wu5, August-Bebel-Straße 12, 01219 Dresden
