C++ Meetup at think-cell Berlin, Germany 2019

November 13, 2019

The night before Meeting C++ 2019, we opened our doors to 70 fellow enthusiasts for a C++ Meetup at our office in central Berlin.

Jonathan Boccara, who is also a speaker at the Meeting C++ conference, presented his pipes library. "Pipes are small components for writing expressive code when working on collections. Pipes chain together into a pipeline that receives data from a source, operates on that data, and send the results to a destination."

Afterwards, think-cell's CTO, Arno Schödl, talked about the C++ rvalue lifetime disaster. In this talk, Arno described the problems in detail, presented a library-only approach to mitigate the problems, and finally, made an impossible-to-ever-get-into-the-standard proposal of how to put things right.

We had a great time mingling with the local C++ community over some beer and 15m long pizzas to discuss the language problems and opportunities. We look forward to meeting again soon!
