August Talk: Pietro Incardona "OpenFPM a scalable framework for particle and mesh methods"

Hello Programmers,

For August we get another interesting talk for the C++ usergroup.
Pietro will introduce us to the world of OpenFPM at Check24.


Abstract:
Numerical simulations are of increasing importance in all areas of science and technology. However, efficiently implementing them on our heterogeneous, distributed hardware systems is a huge bottleneck. Here, we present OpenFPM, an open and scalable framework that provides an abstraction layer for numerical simulations using particles and/or meshes. We present the architecture and design of OpenFPM, detail the underlying abstractions, and benchmark the framework in various applications.
Date: Thursday, 9. August 2018
Start: 19:00
End: 21:30
Place: Check24 Dresden, Prager Str. 3, 01069 Dresden (5th floor, follow the signs)

Check24 Route:

Please invite all the C++ and numerical simulating friends you know or meet!

Cheers!
Andreas

July Talk: Andreas Reischuck "Rethinking programming languages"

Hello Programmers,

Since nobody claimed the July talk slot, I will step in myself.
We meet in the nice air conditioned lecture room of the SLUB.


Abstract:
For 3 years I have been working on the Rebuild Language project in my spare time.
The aim is simply to find and build the perfect system programming language.
It should help us express our intends better and produce faster code than C, C++ or Rust.
We have evaluated a lot of revolutionary ideas. Most are not worth pursuing, but some look very promising.
I will present you the latest set of ideas, the implementations and hope for a vivid discussion.
Date: Thursday, 12. July 2018
Start: 19:30
End: 21:30
Place: SLUB Dresden, Zellescher Weg 18, 01069 Dresden

Juni Talk Peter Steinbach: "Using C++ from Python - a talk from the trenches"

Hello C++ Fellows,

For our Juni meetup Check24 is sponsoring the central location next to Dresden main train station and some pizza again. This time we will start off with the pizza eating at 19:00. At 19:30 Peter Steinbach will talk about Python and C++.

Peter Steinbach
Abstract:
Today's IT world is polyglot. Every domain, be it methodologies or disciplines of science, industry or culture, has their own programming language at heart where most of the knowledge and progress is made persistent. As time goes by, preferences change, but the expertise should be retained at minimal cost. This talk discusses techniques to build such a bridge between python and C++. I'll present my experiences in an open-source project and try to explore the technical details behind the scenes. I'll finish the presentation with a live demo if time allows.
After the talk he is ready to answer your questions.

Date: Tuesday, 12. Juni 2018
Start: 19:00
End: 21:30
Place: Check24 Dresden, Prager Str. 3, 01069 Dresden (5th floor, follow the signs)
