The next meeting of the Belgian C++ Users Group is planned for Tuesday January 24th, 2017 at 18:00 at Nobel Biocare.
Nobel Biocare ( https://www.nobelbiocare.com/ ) is sponsoring this event by providing the location, drinks and catering.
- 18:00: Sandwiches.
- 18:30: Session 1: What’s new in C++17, Part 2? (Peter Van Weert)
This talk will continue the talk from November 2016, giving an overview of all the new features scheduled to be included in C++17. This second part will focus more on library changes.
- 19:30: Break
- 19:45: Session 2: Coming to terms with C++ in a huge financial application (Cosmin Cremarenco)
Murex is a large financial application – ~15M lines of code of C/C++. Migrating from C to C++ has come with enormous challenges. Essential components had to be upgraded to what a C++ programmer naturally expects today. A legacy object framework based on C had to be deprecated in favour of C++, the build system had to be upgraded, proper testing put in place, processes devised to how third-party libraries are introduced in our codebase and used and, finally, a performant serialization system that is in-line with today’s expectations on latency and throughput when communicating between components written in different or same programming language.
- 20:45: Short presentation/demo by Nobel Biocare followed by a drink.
The event is free for everyone, but you need to register for it.
There are 50 seats available for this event.
We will be giving away a copy of C++ Standard Library Quick Reference.
Note: The deadline for registrations is January 20th, 2017!
