You might consider presenting on applications of Root Pointer at a
year's worth of C++ conferences, so submit and present at each of the
big three conferences. That will build a stock of online videos and
get people's heads wrapped around the concept behind the library.

After last summer's review of AFIO, I came to the conclusion at least
two years' worth of conference presentations would be needed before
returning here for review. I started the series last year at CppCon,
the next episode is next week at the ACCU conference where I'll be
presenting a workshop based on using AFIO v2 to implement a
distributed mutual exclusion algorithm using the filesystem. I intend
to submit a third workshop extending this further for CppCon next
