C++ Russia Conference

What happened at this event?

In the second half of April, the C++ Russia conference gathered together experienced developers and guest speakers from all around the world. Despite windy Saint Petersburg weather, 34 speakers and approximately 800 participants stayed for three days to exchange C++ knowledge.

On April 20th, our CTO Arno Schödl gave a speech on the subject, “From Iterators to Ranges – The Upcoming Evolution Of the Standard Library”, which brought together over 200 developers. The talk was about the application of think-cell’s Ranges library, its implementation challenges, advantages, and differences to boost.range. Throughout the talk there were various questions from participants regarding parallel computation, iteration over multi-dimensional structures, and the future of Ranges in C++ standard. As there were further inquiries after the talk as well, Arno welcomed the developers to contact him personally over email.

Before the talk began, conference participants had an opportunity to meet our team, consisting of Arno and two developers - Andrei and Sergey. They answered a number of questions regarding coding, think-cell career opportunities, and our working environment. Our team enjoyed the conference atmosphere, the opportunity to exchange programming ideas, and the chance to engage in dialogue with attendees. Participants who are interested in a career at think-cell are welcome to send us their resumes to hr@think-cell.com. We are looking for C++ developers to join our team.
