Subject: [boost] BoostCon 2011: Registration deadline is Wednesday

The premier annual US C++ event, BoostCon, runs May 15-20, 2011 in
beautiful Aspen, Colorado! See http://boostcon.boost.org for details.
Hans Boehm, the father of C++ garbage collection and the C++0x
threading model, headlines the fifth annual Boost Conference, with his
keynote, "Threads and Shared Variables in C++0x." Other sessions
about which which I'm personally excited:
* Christopher Kohlhoff, the author of ASIO, is coming all the way from
the "land down under" to present his library, slated for TR2. Also
IPv6, and more!
* Bartosz Milewski is going to talk about the relationship between C++
template metaprogramming and Haskell
* Matt Calabrese presents his library implementation of the postponed
C++0x concepts features
Further topics include Unicode, lockfree programming, Boost.Units,
compile-time graphs, database mapping, high-performance numerics,
and... too many other good things to list.
I'll be running a daily infrastructure workshop where we'll develop
the frameworks for documentation, web services, build, test, packaging
and distribution of C++ components, including ryppl.
As usual, the best things about BoostCon are the people and the work
that gets done between sessions. The pictures at
http://boostcon.boost.org/photos/ give a pretty good sense of it, but
there's truly no substitute for being there.
If you haven't registered yet, fix that :-) at
http://boostcon.boost.org/registration/. Your chance to save $100
expires on Wednesday.
See you there!
