Have you been at Cpp Con this year?
I haven’t, but still I plan to watch some good C++ talks. Can you help me a bit and add your notes?
Last update: 14th October 2017
Intro Cpp Con 2017 is over and recently the videos from the talks started to appear.
Another year and another C++ Status! It’s hard to believe, but it’s my fifth time I am writing this summary. And, as usually, C++ language is very alive. The biggest news for the year?
Of course, it must be: the final draft for C++17!.
What else have happened? See my full report below.
Maybe I’ll be boring with this note, but again I need to write that this was another good year for C++!
Here’s a bunch of facts:
Visual Studio 2015 was released with great support for C++14⁄17 and even more experimental features. Long-awaited GCC 5.0 was released at the beginning of the year.
At GDC 2015 in San Francisco, Khronos announced new API for graphics and compute, previously it was called glNext… but now the official name is “Vulkan”!
I could not resist to write some comments about this new and intriguing standard that can potentially “replace” OpenGL.
Bunch of links khronos.
OpenGL 4.5 has just arrived!
Since Siggraph 2014 is happening right now, we could expect a new version of OpenGL. And it happened! Khronos announced OpenGL 4.5! Not a major update, but still adds some nice features to the API. What about OpenGL 5.0? Is there any news here?
Recently ended DConf 2014 conference was, as usually, a great event filled with interesting topics about the D language. I still need to update my little knowledge about the language and see more presentations, but one keynote especially drew my attention. This was a talk from Scott Meyers called The Last Thing D Needs.
