Consider it to be a an informal study group or c++ users group. It is basically an initiative in the company whereby engineers get together once a week to discuss and talk about a C++ topic. The idea is to really further everyone's knowledge of C++ which, hopefully would lead to more effective C++ usage. Different boost libraries are regular topics.

Sarcasm aside, I am glad to see someone else came up with the same idea. I would not consider it to be 'cute', a 'tour of force' possibly, yes.
