Subject: [Boost-announce] BoostCon 2009 Schedule Now Live
From: David Abrahams (dave_at_[hidden])
Date: 2009-03-24 17:21:42

The official schedule is now live at! A
few highlights of the "mouth-watering content" (in the words of one
enrollee) are:

* A keynote address from Andrei Alexandrescu called "Iterators Must Go."
  It's sure to be provocative!

* Troy Straszheim's presentations on how high-energy physicists are
  using Boost to process massive datasets as they go "Icefishing for
  Neutrinos" and on Kamasu, his library for offloading computation to
  your machine's GPU.

* Two hands-on sessions where we'll start recoding parts of Boost for
  C++0x, applying rvalue references, variadic templates, decltype, and
  advanced SFINAE capabilities using the latest GCC.

* "Practical C++ Test-Driven Development with Boost.Test and Bmock," by
  Asher Sterkin

* A session on compiler construction using Boost.Spirit v2, from Hartmut
  Kaiser and Joel de Guzman

The complete list of sessions covers a wide range of other Boost and
C++-related topics. It is available at Please have a look, and
please, sign up for the conference! Remember, registration for the
whole week is just $599 before April 1st.
