Brief Appearance at CppCon

This year's CppCon includes two panel discussions devoted to technical training, and I'll be on the one on Monday, September 25. Other members of the panel will be Giuseppe D'Angelo, Stephen Dewhurst, Kate Gregory, and Anthony Williams. The moderator will be Jon Kalb, who's also an experienced trainer. Together, we've probably indoctrinated many thousands of developers in the ways we believe to be right and just in the battle between programmer and machine.

Most people would probably date my work with C++ to the initial publication of Effective C++ in late 1991, but I'd been training professional programmers for several years before that, and since retiring from C++ involvement at the end of 2015, I've given a few more presentations on non-C++ technical topics (most recently a couple of weeks ago). All told, I have close to 30 years' experience training professional software developers, so I'd like to think I know a thing or two about it. To find out if I do, I encourage you to attend the panel session.

Monday will be the only day I'll be at the conference, so if you want to hunt me down to say hello, that'll be the day to do it.

I would like to, very much, to say hello and show respect. But, maybe next time. For me, best cpp talks and books ever. Thanks.

You're still a C++ Guru in my mind, and always will be.
