"C++ and Beyond" Registration Now Open

In January, I mentioned that Herb Sutter, Andrei Alexandrescu, and I were organizing a sort-of-a-conference event called "C++ and Beyond". We originally planned to hold it this summer, but it turned out that the intersection of availability of a suitable venue and availability of the three of us yielded dates in late October: October 24-27, to be precise. Full information about "C++ and Beyond" (C&B) is available at its web site, and you can remain apprised of C&B-related development by subscribing to its RSS feed. Because of the existence of that feed, I will make very few additional announcements about C&B to this mailing list. If you're interested in C&B, I encourage you to subscribe to its RSS feed.

I blogged about the structure of C&B at http://cppandbeyond.com/2010/04/15/c-beyond-event-structure/ and about the venue and why we chose it at http://cppandbeyond.com/2010/04/16/the-venue-for-cb/, so here I'll simply summarize the main points:
  • Attendance is limited to 60 people.
  • C&B runs from 8AM to 9:30 PM each day and features as much time dedicated to informal discussions as to official presentations.
  • It takes place at a venue designed to foster interaction among participants.
For details, please consult the C&B web site.

Registration for C&B opened yesterday.  There's a 10% discount for early bird registrations (by July 24) , and a further 10% discount for groups of 3 or more. Given the limited attendance and the fact that the first slot got snapped up less than 8 hours after registration opened, I suggest you register earlier rather than later.

I hope to see you in October at C++ and Beyond. I'm convinced it is going to be one of the most rewarding technical opportunities of 2010.
