I'll be heading to CppCon 2014 shortly. I plan to write periodic reports on what I've learned over the next week.
The upcoming conference looks like the first comprehensive and inclusive conference focused on C++. I've attended the GDC, E3 and various hardware specific conferences, but never a language-focused one.
The web developers in particular seem to have boundless chances to attend conferences, especially given our location in the heart of San Francisco. Finding fellow C++ developers here can be difficult given the current mainstream of SF Tech business focuses more on web or mobile where other languages dominate (but not exclusively.)
So back in April I decided to do some research and discovered that a new, generalized C++ conference was taking registrations. Months later I'm excited to soon be in Bellvue attending the conference, and hope to learn much from fellow developers.
More to come...
