BeCPP Meeting October 2019
The next meeting of the Belgian C++ Users Group is planned for Thursday October 10th, 2019 at 18:00 at
The agenda is as follows:
- 18:00: Reception with food.
- 18:30: Session 1: C++20: What’s in it for you? (Marc Gregoire)
With the current three-year pace of C++ releases, the next release is scheduled for 2020, C++20. This presentation gives an overview of what you can expect in the new standard. It starts with discussing the C++20 language features that will be added by the C++20 standard, such as concepts, coroutines, templated lambdas, the spaceship operator, pack expansion in lambda captures, string literals as template parameters, extra initializer for range-based for loop, modules, and more. Next, we’ll delve into the new Standard Library features, such as ranges, std::span, atomic smart pointers, and more. Depending on the outcome of the next C++ Standard Committee meeting, the list of new features might include improved futures, task blocks, and text formatting. If you want a concise overview of what the C++20 standard will offer, then this presentation is for you.
- 19:30: Break
- 19:45: Session 2: From Iterators To Ranges — The Upcoming Evolution Of the Standard Library (Arno Schödl)
Pairs of iterators are ubiquitous throughout the C++ library. It is generally accepted that combining such a pair into a single entity usually termed Range delivers more concise and readable code. Defining the precise semantics of such Range concept proves surprisingly tricky, however. Theoretical considerations conflict with practical ones. Some design goals are mutually incompatible altogether.
- 20:45: Introduction to think-cell, followed by a drink.
