June Talk: Hendrik Niemeyer "Intro to C++20's Concepts"

Hello to all C++ enthusiasts,

Hendrik will use the opportunity to join our usergroup virtually and give us his introduction to concepts in C++20.
Teaser
One of the biggest new features of C++20 are concepts. Concepts define requirements on template arguments which are enforced by the compiler. This leads to more readable code which clearly expresses intent. Error messages are improved since violations of the constraints defined by concepts can be detected in the early stages of the template instantiation.
This talked is aimed at people with little or no experience with concepts and will introduce generic programming with concepts (constraining templates, writing your own concepts and overloading functions which are constrained by concepts)
We will use Goto Meeting for our remote meetup. You will get the chance to ask your questions directly through chat or voice.

Date: Thursday, 11. June 2020
Start: 19:00
End: 22:00
Place: Goto Meeting (The URL will be here just before the meeting!)

Please join before 19 o'clock. As we will start on time.

Cheers!
Andreas

May Talk: Andreas Reischuck "Faster ►► C++ Meta-Programming"

Hello C++ Friends,

As we still cannot meet in person, we do another online meetup for May.
I will talk to you about faster meta programming with C++.
Please propose your talk for future possibly online meetups.
Teaser
When we embraced meta programming in our application code we noticed a hit in compile times.
This started an ongoing journey to mitigate the negative effects, but retain the positives.
During this talk I will introduce the some motivations to run meta programming.
We will look at some compile time benchmark of basic meta programming constructs and discuss ideas to make them faster. With this foundation we take a look at real world use cases, like templated data containers. Hopefully we learn a lot and can make your code compile a bit faster.
We will use Goto Meeting again. You will get the chance to ask your questions directly through chat or voice.

Date: Wednesday, 13. May 2020
Start: 19:00
End: 22:00
Online: Goto Meeting

Please join before 19:00, so we can start on time.

Cheers!
Andreas

PS.: We are looking for a talk in June!

April Talk: Hendrik Sollich "Rust for C++ Developers"

Hello Fellow C++ Developers,

In April we will do an online only meetup to keep the physical distance.
Hendrik will give us an introduction to Rust for C++ developers.
Teaser (Deutsch)
Einer der Gründe für C++s Erfolg ist, dass es lange Zeit die einzige Wahl für Hochperformante Software war. Doch das Feld hat Zuwachs bekommen, mittlerweile kann man hochperformante Software auch in Rust schreiben. Doch was ist Rust für eine Sprache? Wie unterscheidet sie sich von C++ und wo liegen Gemeinsamkeiten. Was macht Rust besonders?
Teaser (English)
For a long time C++ was the only choice for high performance software, that was part of the reason for its success. But there are newcomers. Today you can develop high performance software as well in Rust. What what kind of a language is that? Is it that different from C++? What are the commonalities?
This time you will have to use your own food and drinks, sorry!
But you will be able to ask questions in the chat.

Date: Tuesday, 7. April 2020
Start: 19:00
End: 22:00
Place: Goto Meeting

Please join before 19 o'clock. As we will start on time.

Stay healthy and keep coding!
Andreas
