|17-18 September 2012||Effective C++ in an Embedded Environment|
|20-21 September 2012||Fastware for C++|
|24-25 September 2012||An Overview of the New C++ (C++11)|
The talk on C++11 will be a two-day version of my three-day training course, which means that some topics I'd normally cover will be omitted. The topics to be skipped will come out of the material covering new standard library functionality, but which library features will be omitted will be determined during the seminar, based on the interests of the attendees and the time remaining after all core C++11 language topics have been discussed. To ensure that attendees have copies of all the materials I'll show, each attendee will receive a copy of the materials for the full three-day seminar, even though it will be clear from the outset that I won't be able to cover everything. In other words, the handout you'll get as a seminar participant will include "bonus topics" not covered in the lecture :-)
Last year's experiment in doing a presentation in German was, linguistically speaking, successful (people had no trouble understanding me, and I had no trouble responding to their questions and comments), but I don't speak German as quickly as I speak English, and that meant that I had to omit a couple of topics I normally cover. The feedback I got was that covering more topics was more important than doing a presentation in German, so this year, I'm back to an all-English set of talks. During breaks and lunch, I still plan to speak German, however, so if you're interested in hearing my funny accent and colorful grammatical constructs, don't worry. You'll have plenty of chances :-)
I look forward to seeing you in Stuttgart in September.
