November Talk: René Richter "any optional variant: C++17 vocabulary types"

Hello lifelong C++ Learners,

René Richter will give his talk at our traditional location the Wu5 student club for our November meetup.
He will answer the questions:
"How did we get there and how to use them?"

Every programming languange comes with a system for data and types, static or dynamic, strict or relaxed.
To understand where we did come from might affect our ability to go on in with modern C++.
In 2017 optional<T>, variant<Ts...> and any were introduced.
The (short) presentation is intended to start a discussion around:
  • How do these vocabulary types fit into the type system? 
  • Is the type system now complete? 
  • What about the proposed Expected<T,E> and other ways to return function results / exceptions in future versions of C++? 
Please feel invited to join the discussion afterwards.

Date: Thursday, 8. November 2018
Start: 20:00
End: 22:00
Place: Studentenclub Wu5, August-Bebel-Straße 12, 01219 Dresden


Please think about giving your first or next talk in 2019!
If you need ideas, talk to me!

October Talk: Steffen Liebergeld "Introduction to the L4Re Operating System"

Hello C++ Conqueror,

For our October meetup, we were able to convince Kernkonzept to introduce us to their L4Re operating system.
Steffen will tell us how they bring the complexity of modern systems under control with their take to overhaul the traditional system design.

L4Re is an operating system capable of isolating mission critical software components. It builds on years of research done at TU Dresden and is now being developed by Kernkonzept. L4Re is already used in domains with high security demands.In this talk I will give you a high level introduction into L4Re. You will learn about its properties and some real-world applications.

Date: Thursday, 25. October 2018
Start: 19:00
End: 21:30
Place: Check24 Dresden, Prager Str. 3, 01069 Dresden (5th floor, follow the signs)
