The schedule for C++ and Beyond 2013 is perpetually tentative, because we reserve the right to change things at the last minute if we believe it will be for the good of the event. At the same time, we recognize that people make plans based on the schedule, so we do our best to adhere to what we announce.
You can view the current schedule here.
Here is the general structure of C&B 2013:
Monday, 9 December:
- 7:30–9:30PM: Informal welcome reception with complimentary light refreshments and soft drinks. Alcoholic beverages available for purchase. Location: Falls Terrace.
Tuesday, 10 December – Thursday, 12 December:
- 8:00–9:00AM: Communal breakfast. Location: Falls Terrace.
- 9:00AM–~12:00PM: Technical sessions. (Ending time is tentative.) Location: Salish Ballroom.
- ~12:00–~1:00PM: Communal lunch. (Starting time depends on when morning technical sessions end.) Location: Falls Terrace.
- 2:30–5:00PM: Technical sessions. Location: Salish Ballroom.
- 7:30–9:30PM: Informal discussion session. Scott, Andrei, and Herb will do their best to participate, but other commitments may interfere. Tuesday and Wednesday nights only. Location: Falls Terrace.
The longish break between the morning and afternoon technical sessions is designed to allow ample time for lunch plus some “post-lunch activity.” Possible activities include discussions with fellow C&B attendees, hiking or jogging near the lodge, catching up with email, conferencing with remote colleagues, visiting with non-C&B participants who accompanied you to Snoqualmie, cranking out code, or taking a nap.
Topics for Technical Sessions
As noted at C&B 2013’s Home Page, topics for the technical sessions are determined by Herb, Andrei, and Scott in the months and weeks prior to the event; talks typically cover new material developed expressly for C&B; and session ideas are usually posted to the C&B blog for advance feedback. Topics that have been finalized (bearing in mind that the schedule is perpetually tentative) are listed here:
- Concurrent Data Structures and Standard C++ (Scott)
- C++11 and C++14 Style (Herb)
- A Crash Course in C++14 (Scott)
If you have a topic you’d like to see covered, don’t be shy about suggesting it, either through a blog comment or via email to the C&B Coordinator.
