C++/C++11 Track @ Silicon Valley Code Camp 2012

For the first time in 7 years, 2012 Silicon Valley Code Camp will have a track dedicated to C++ and C++11. Code Camp is a conference of developers, by developers, for developers. Attendance is free! This year, the number of attendees is expected to exceed 2200 to attend 223 sessions on a variety of topics related to software technology. Code Camp will be held @ Foothill College on Oct. 6th and 7th (weekend) in Silicon Valley.

C++ is clearly one of the big things at Code Camp this year. The track has sessions on exception-safe coding, generic programming, logic programming, Windows 8 development, and the Clang compiler. There are sessions focused on C++11 too. Purely on the language side, two sessions on rvalue references, move semantics, perfect forwarding, and modern idioms of using them in your programs should whet the appetite of any C++11 programmer. On the standard library side, how about C++11 threading library!

On Sunday, I'll present two sessions: "C++11 Idioms"…
