C++ Meetup in Amsterdam, Netherlands

November 23, 2023

think-cell is excited to announce that we will be participating in the Meetup of The Dutch C++ Group in Amsterdam in November. They are an active group with several Meetups per year and a large community. The theme this time is “C++: Building Better" and will take place at JetBrains’ office on Thursday the 23rd of November, from 6 – 10pm. A big thanks to JetBrains for hosting the event!

We will kick off the evening with some food and drinks in an informal setting. Afterwards, our Software engineer Jonathan Müller will present his talk “The New Library On The Block: A strong library foundation for your next project” where he will present the library that is the foundation of our code base and that lets us write code the way we like it: Short, elegant, and to the point. The talk will focus on actual usage, rather than conceptual ideas.

Later on Dmitry Kozhevnikov, team lead in the CLion IDE team at JetBrains will be presenting his talk “Why Are C++ Builds Slow And What Can You Do About It?”. He will cover what a C++ compiler has to do, and how to profile it, go through a list of techniques and tools to speed up C++ builds, look at some outstanding real-world examples of build performance reductions and speculate whether C++20 modules will save us from all of this.

There will be plenty of time to socialize before and after the talks. Julia and Anna from our HR team will also be there in person to tell you more about our C++ developer vacancies and what it’s like working at think-cell.

This event is completely free to attend, but make sure you register ASAP to secure your spot since spaces are limited. For those who are unable to join us in Amsterdam, the talks will be recorded so you can watch them afterwards at any time.

We are very much looking forward to meeting The Dutch C++ Group in person!
