CppCon, The C++ Conference
Opening Keynote by Bjarne Stroustrup
September 7–12, 2014
Bellevue, Washington, USA

Registration is now open for CppCon 2014 to be held September 7–12, 2014
at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue, Washington, USA. This year the
conference starts with the keynote by Bjarne Stroustrup titled "Make
Simple Tasks Simple!"

CppCon is the annual, week-long face-to-face gathering for the entire
C++ community. The conference is organized by the C++ community for
the community. You will enjoy inspirational talks and a friendly
atmosphere designed to help attendees learn from each other, meet
interesting people, and generally have a stimulating experience.
Taking place this year in the beautiful Seattle neighborhood and
including multiple diverse tracks, the conference will appeal to
anyone from C++ novices to experts.

What you can expect at CppCon:

 * Invited talks and panels: CppCon keynote by Bjarne Stroustrup will
   start off a week full of insight from some of the world’s leading
   experts in C++. Still have questions? Ask them at one of CppCon's
   panels featuring those at the cutting edge of the language.

 * Presentations by the C++ community: What do embedded systems, game
   development, high frequency trading, and particle accelerators have
   in common? C++, of course! Expect talks from a broad range of domains
   focused on practical C++ techniques, libraries, and tools.

 * Lightning talks: Get informed at a fast pace during special sessions
   of short, informal talks. Never presented at a conference before?

   an impromptu coding session.

CppCon’s goal is to encourage the best use of C++ while preserving the
diversity of viewpoints and experiences, but other than that it is
non-partisan and has no agenda. The conference is a project of the
Standard C++ Foundation, a not-for-profit organization whose purpose
