The next meeting of the Belgian C++ Users Group is planned for Tuesday April 11th, 2017 at 18:00 at VUB.
SoftKinetic ( https://www.softkinetic.com/ ) is sponsoring this event by providing the location, drinks and catering.
- 18:00: Sandwiches.
- 18:30: Session 1: Challenges in Modern Embedded Development Using C++ (Glyn Matthews)
This talk will cover things such as constrained systems (e.g. CPU, cache, memory), older compilers affecting the use of library and language features from the 2011 standard and beyond, porting, testing etc. One theme will be that what’s “standard” and “modern” is not what you need to get your software working. In some ways, I’d like to push back a bit on the trend to more modern code bases, because it turns out it’s quite rare for developers to have access to the latest language features (and by “latest” I mean 6 years old…)
- 19:30: Break
- 19:45: Session 2: SFINAE and type traits: In the Mix (Lieven de Cock)
The journey will start with a test drive of simple method overloading, shortly later enriched with some ‘templates’ laps. Then we shift gears and we add type traits to the mix. In order to arrive at the finish line, some SFINAE herbs are added to spice up the mix. And as the proof of the pudding is in the eating, a small use case, which will bring things together, will be served.
In the end the main question remaining is: do we std::enable_if some drinks afterward?
- 20:45: Short presentation and demo by SoftKinetic followed by a drink.
