TCS3 Reminder; New Talk Topic; Oct-Nov Talks Schedule

This issue's news:
- TCS3 early-bird registration deadline is this Sunday!
- New talk on C++ and Embedded Systems.
- Talks in England and Ireland in October.
- Talks in Germany in November.
- Talks in Boston in November.

TCS3 UPDATE
-------------------------------------
This October's "THE C++ Seminar" is filling up nicely, and I wanted to
remind you that the early bird registration deadline for this event is
Sunday. Unless you'll be attending as part of a group of four or more from
one company, you'll save $455 if you register by Sunday. (The official
rule is that you have to *pay* by Sunday, but the registrar is a friend of
mine, so I think I can get him to bend that rule by a few days as long as
you are registered by Sunday.) You can register at
http://www.thecppseminar.com/03/registration.htm.

BTW, I recently got inspired, so I changed my talk agenda a bit. You'll
find details on all the talks at the TCS3 page with the prospective
schedule (http://www.thecppseminar.com/03/index.htm), but here are the
topics I plan to address:
- False friends in C++
- Rvalues in C++
- Approximating Named Parameters in C++
Andrei seems to think that the false friends talk is a good one :-)


NEW TALK ON C++ IN EMBEDDED SYSTEMS
-----------------------------------
Software developers for embedded systems are increasingly interested in
using C++, so I'm putting together a new talk on making effective use of
C++ in embedded systems. This talk isn't listed at my web site yet,
because it's still in beta, but I'll be giving it in England, Ireland, and
Germany this autumn (see below). You can get an overview of the talk's
contents at http://www.programmingresearch.com/pressroom/scottmeyers.htm.
If you're involved in embedded development and think you might like to have
me come present the talk at your company, let me know.


TALKS IN ENGLAND AND IRELAND IN OCTOBER
---------------------------------------
In conjunction with Programming Research (http://www.programmingresearch.com/),
I'll be giving my new talk on C++ in embedded systems (see above) in
London, Manchester, Edinburgh, and Dublin on October 14-17, respectively.
You'll find links to each talk at my seminars page,
http://www.aristeia.com/seminars.html.


TALKS IN ULM (GERMANY) IN NOVEMBER
----------------------------------
I'll be working with QA Systems (http://www.qa-systems.com/) again this
year for a full week of talks (November 4-8 in Ulm): two days on class
design and efficiency, one day on C++ in embedded systems (see above), and
two days on effective STL programming. You'll find links to the details
for all these talks at my seminars page,
http://www.aristeia.com/seminars.html. Ich hoffe, Sie in Ulm zu sehen!


TALKS IN BOSTON IN NOVEMBER
---------------------------
I'll be speaking at the Software Development conference in Boston on
November 20-22. Two of the talks will be on C++, one on library design,
one on static initialization and policy based design. The other two talks
are on language-independent issues I consider important to all software
developers. One is on my current focus of research (and probably the topic
of my next book), "The Keyhole Problem." The other is on general
approaches to improving software quality. You'll find details by following
the links to these talks at my seminars page,
http://www.aristeia.com/seminars.html.


Between London, Manchester, Edinburgh, Dublin, Portland, Ulm, and Boston, I
hope to see you *somewhere* in October or November to discuss embedded
systems programming, false friends, rvalues, approximations to named
parameters, class design, efficiency, use of the STL, policy-based design,
general approaches to usability and other aspects of software quality, or
anything else that strikes your fancy :-)
