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!

Cheers!
Andreas

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

January Talk: Peter Steinbach "The Performance Addict's toolbox"

Hello Performance Addicts,

Peter was so kind to jump in for our first talk of the year.
Abstract:
C++ programmers care about performance in every minute of their work-life. As a matter of fact, the central differentiating criterion for using C++ in a software project is speed almost exclusively.
But how do we measure it? What tools are out there to help us measure the performance for a given code snippet inside a larger project.
What tools are out there to judge the performance of new algorithms or of our collaborators recent contribution? In this talk I would like to address these questions and provide demonstrations and experience report from the field.
I'll discuss layman tools as well as open-source tools and finish with proprietary tools. With this talk, I hope to motivate a more vivid discussion in the C++ community on how we measure the speed of our implementations.
This will be an improved version of Peter's Meeting C++ 2017 talk. And you will be able to ask your questions afterwards!

Date: Thursday, 11. January 2018
Start: 20:00
End: 21:30 (continued discussions with a beer)
Place: Studentenclub Wu5, August-Bebel-Straße 12, 01219 Dresden

Have a relaxing Christmas holiday and a good start into 2018!

Cheers!
Andreas
