Italian C++ Conference in Milan, Italy 2017

June 17, 2017

Last Saturday we sponsored the Italian C++ Conference that took place at the University of Bicocca and two of our colleagues travelled to take part. Despite it being a busy week in Milan due to a public transport strike, several concerts in the Duomo area, Fashion Week and very hot temperatures, over a hundred and fifty people from all over Italy devoted their Saturday to meet, share and learn about topics related to C++. The food at the event was especially good. We set up our sweet and sour green candy stand for people to serve themselves, and, since you “don’t take candy from strangers”, also to introduce themselves as is our motto.

According to our developer Giulio, there were several exciting talks for those interested in the way C++ is evolving as well as discussions about how it can be used to write more concise and elegant code. Examples of this were Michael Wong’s keynote on C++17 and C++20 as well as talks on the Italian track that showcased C++ applications to solve specific problems. There was also a panel devoted to diversity during a break with many engaged participants!

Congratulations to Marco Arena and Alessandro Vergani who are part of the team organizing this event and coordinating the Italian C++ Community, which has more than 1000 active members across the country. We are looking forward to receiving applications for the position of C++ developers in Berlin!
