Meeting C++ Conference in Düsseldorf

November 8, 2013

The second Meeting C++ Conference took place from November 8th to 9th in Düsseldorf, Germany. The biggest European C++ conference offered news about the most recent developments in C++11, about various C++ libraries and the progress of C++ standardization. Several developers of Boost libraries as well as the Qt framework were there to present their projects.

The conference was opened with a well received keynote about "C++11 and No-Compromise Library Design" by Eric Niebler, the developer of the Boost.Proto library. Over the course of the two conference days, 200 international attendees could choose from 21 lectures and two keynotes which were arranged into three parallel lecture series. Tony van Eerd had the honor of giving the closing keynote of the conference, "Aesthetics. UI. C++". In this lecture he presented a summary of the lessons he learned during his successful career as a developer of user interfaces for Adobe and Blackberry among others.

To support the lively introductions and conversation during lecture breaks, we provided a comfortable lounge and cold soft drinks. We made several new, interesting acquaintances, found fascinated audiences for our short demos and had the chance to talk in detail about our contributions to the standardization process. In short: We had a fantastic time.

We were particularly thrilled by one particular announcement made by organizer Jens Weller about the future of the conference: The Meeting C++ Conference 2014 is to take place in Berlin!
