After a long break due to the Corona pandemic, I’m happy to announce that the next meeting of the Belgian C++ Users Group is planned for Tuesday June 28th, 2022 at 18:00 at Vandewiele Experience Center.

Vandewiele ( ) is sponsoring this event by providing the location, drinks and catering.

The agenda is as follows:

  • 18:00: Reception with food.
  • 18:30: Session 1: Minimal Logging Framework in C++ 20 (Koen Poppe)
    As developers, adding log statements seems easy and risk-free. However, with hundreds of machines, collecting those log files can become quite a challenge, let alone making sense of the important information they contain. We set out to reduce logging to its essentials and explore optimisations not only in terms of disk space, but also runtime performance and even exposure. Leveraging ideas from well-known software related workflows, we will write a C++20 logging framework from scratch and highlight some surprises along the way.
  • 19:30: Break
  • 19:45: Session 2: Modern CMake (Lieven de Cock)
    CMake is a cross-platform open source software for managing the build process in a portable fashion. We will have a look at the basics of modern CMake. The old, pre modern cmake way should be considered obsolete, for very good reasons. We will talk about targets, build types, dependencies, usage specifications, …, a quick look on cross compilation, and using 3rd party libraries.
  • 20:45: Introduction to Vandewiele, followed by a drink.

Professional C++, 5th Edition
We will be giving away 2 copies of Professional C++, 5th Edition.

The event is free for everyone, but you need to register for it.

There are 30 seats available for this event.

Note: The deadline for registrations is June 22th, 2022!
