Andrei, Herb, and I are pleased to announce that registration for C++ and Beyond 2012 is now open. In fact, thanks to a technical boo-boo on my part, it’s been open for a couple of days, and wasn’t I surprised the other morning when people starting registering before I realized it was possible? That phenomenon “incentivised” me to finish up the C&B web pages a few days earlier than I’d planned, but the result is that everything you need to know about C&B is now accessible. Among the most important pages are:
- The C&B Home Page, which summarizes what C++ and Beyond is about.
- The Grove Park Inn Page, which describes where it will be held, and the Getting to C&B 2012 Page, which tells you how to get there.
- The C&B Schedule Page, which currently contains only general information, but which we’ll update to reflect talk topics as they are determined.
- The C&B FAQ Page, which answers frequently asked questions (duh!).
The essentials of C&B 2012 are as follows:
- Dates are August 5-8, location is the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, North Carolina.
- Attendance is limited to 120 participants.
- Technical sessions focus on new material—material we’ve never publicly presented or published. Prospective talk sessions will be posted to the blog for advance feedback.
- The Sunday evening reception and daily breakfasts and lunches are included.
- Group registrations (3 or more people) get 10% off. Early birds (groups and individuals registering by the end of May) also get 10% off. These discounts combine, so early bird groups get 20% off.
This year boasts more C++-focused conferences than we’ve seen in a long while, but C++ and Beyond remains the only event with a deliberately small-group feel, a dedication to new technical material, and a real opportunity for substantive interactions with Herb, Andrei, and me. The three of us are committed to making it a don’t-miss event for all serious C++ software developers, regardless of experience level.
We hope to see you in Asheville in August.
