March Talk: Andreas Reischuck "std::function - a deep dive behind the curtain"

Greetings to all survivors,

After a long pause, I am very thrilled to announce the restart of regular meetings for the C++ User group in Dresden.

I will jump in with the first talk: "std::function - a deep dive behind the curtain".

Standard function imagined by DeepAI


C++11 introduced std::function as a versatile tool that was lifted from boost to the STL. C++23 will probably introduce std::move_only_function as the first major extension. But it comes with some caveats that you should know. With std::invoke introduced in C++17 it has become convenient to build your own derivatives.

For the first time Wandelbots will host our meetup.

Date: Thursday, 16. March 2023
Start: 19:00
End: 21:00
Place: Wandelbots, Rayskistraße 25, 01219 Dresden (at Villa Erlwein)

Please come up with your presentation! Please send me your proposal or help us organize more speakers.

October Talk: Andreas Reischuck "Using C++20 Coroutines for Asynchronous Parsers"

Hello fellow C++ learners,

for our October talk we will join the Meeting C++ Online Meetup and use Hubilo for hosting the meetup.

See: for all the details.

C++20 Coroutines are one of the big new features, which are a bit hard to understand.
This talk will try to boost our understanding of coroutines.


We start of with an introduction to parsers and why we may want an asynchronous parser.
Motivated by this, we will try to use C++20 Coroutines to implement a simple parser.
As C++ lacks library support for Coroutines, we use most of the time for this. 
The talk will have slides to introduce and visualize some concepts.
For the hands on we will do live coding.
Please pray to the live coding gods and watch out for typos.

Date: Thursday, 21. October 2021
Start: 19:00
End: 22:00
Place: Online (see

We are looking for your presentation! Please send your proposal or help us find a good talk.

June Talk: Andreas Reischuck "Cross Compiling with CMake"

Hello everyone,

As nobody came up with a proper talk. I will jump in and talk about cross compiling.


Cross Compiling C++ projects is hard. This talk tries to shed some light on when and why you may be forced to do it. How it works with CMake using proper Toolchain files. For demonstration we will take a look at Raspberry Pi and Bluepill boards.

We will use Goto Meeting again. You will get the chance to ask your questions directly through chat or voice.

Date: Thursday, 3. June 2021
Start: 20:00
