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 OTDS“

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 (OTDS) 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)

March Talk: Andreas Schau "CFUN - Reactive programming in C++"

Hello,

In March the SLUB Dresden is hosting our meetup. We start half an hour earlier. For the first time we will have a very C++ specific talk there.

Andreas Schau will talk about the results of his master thesis.

Intro:
Signals & Slots, Property Bindings, Graph based algorithms have many implementations and use cases. This master thesis presents and analyses different approaches for performance characteristics and development efforts.

After the talk he is ready to answer all your questions.

Date: Thursday, 8. March 2018
Start: 19:30
End: 21:30
Place: SLUB Dresden, Zellescher Weg 18, 01069 Dresden

Please invite all the C++ peers around you!

February Sessions: "REPL" Jörg Thalheim and "types & values" Andreas Reischuck

Hello C++ Fellows,

In February we try something new by hosting two sessions in one meetup.

Jörg Thalheim will kick of the meetup with a remote presentation.
He introduces his new drop-in REPL inspector for C++ to us.

Idea:
Just add a line of into your C++ code, compile and run it.
When the new line is executed an interactive REPL is started.
You can use this to execute arbitrary c++ code with access to the current program state.

Andreas Reischuck will take over the stage for our second session.
He plays around with new concepts for types and values in C++17.

Abstract:
C++17 allows for some ways to handle types and values at compile time.
I will introduce these new patterns to you and show some possible use cases.
This session involves a large portion of interactive live coding.
Both sessions will allow you to ask questions.

Date: Thursday, 8. February 2018
Start: 20:00
End: 21:30 (continued discussions with a beer)
Place: Studentenclub Wu5, August-Bebel-Straße 12, 01219 Dresden

Please invite all the C++ peers around you!

Cheers!
Andreas
