Last week, we covered four great conferences for C++ developers that you could attend in the next few months. What we found though, was that while these were great, there’s so many more options for you to visit. 

So, we’re adding a few more for you to explore and (hopefully) attend in 2022, and even a few for the coming year! Take a look below:

C++ On Sea

https://cpponsea.uk 

What is it?

C++ On Sea started in 2019 as an international C++ conference, taking place in the south of the UK. Since then, it has taken place annually, though with an online program in 2020 and 2021 due to Covid-19.

Highlights from the agenda 

The conference has one day of workshops followed by three days of the main conference, with three tracks of parallel talks. Speakers include Jason Turner, Nicolai Josuttis, Hana Dusíková, Walter Brown, Bryce Adelstein Lelbach, Anthony Williams and our own Amir Kirsh, to name a few. Topics vary along almost any relevant subject in C++ from multithreading, reverse engineering and performance to modern C++ features and migrating legacy C++ code.

When is it?

July 4th 2022 

Online: July 13th 2022 

Where is it?

Folkestone, UK

Online, or face-to-face?

Face-to-face, with an online track following right after the face-to-face conference.

Will Incredibuild be there?

Yes! We are there and will be happy to see you.

Cpp North

What is it?

C++ North is a brand new conference organized by several well-known community members who are also involved in other conferences in the US (CppCon, C++ Now). It is based on the success of the Toronto C++ user group, and aims for an international and North American audience.

Highlights from the agenda 

The conference has two days of workshops followed by three days of the main conference, with three tracks of parallel talks. Speakers include Sean Parent, Titus Winters, Kate Gregory, Tara Walker, Daisy Hollman, Rainer Grimm, Walter Brown, Timur Doumler, Guy Davidson and again our own Amir Kirsh, to name a few. With a rich program covering subjects from cute C++, embedding python and C++, type safety and abstractions to template meta-programming and compile time C++ code.

When is it?

July 17th 2022 

Where is it?

Toronto, Canada

Online, or face-to-face?

Face-to-face. 

Will Incredibuild be there?

Yes! We are there and will be happy to see you.

NDC TechTown

What is it?

NDC, the Norwegian Developers Conference, started in 2008 in Oslo. Since then it has become an umbrella for worldwide technical conferences. Traditionally it had a strong C++ track and in 2017 the C++ track got its own dedicated conference, NDC TechTown, which is very C++ focused but not entirely dedicated to the language. 

Highlights from the agenda 

The conference has two days of workshops, featuring an impressive list of 10 workshops in a variety of topics (C++, but also Linux, Yocto, Python and Rust) followed by two days of the main conference, with 3 and 4 tracks of parallel talks. Speakers include Klaus Iglberger, Kate Gregory, Michael Kerrisk, Daniela Engert, James Lewis, Jutta Eckstein, Patricia Aas, Phil Nash and Ólafur Waage to name a few. Program goes beyond the usual C++ suspects and covers topics such as Linux, Containers (docker) and better testing.

When is it?

August 29th 2022 

Where is it?

Kongsberg, Norway (about an hour and a half from Oslo)

Online, or face-to-face?

Face-to-face with and online. 

Core C++

What is it?

Core C++ started in 2019 as an international C++ conference in Tel Aviv, originating from two C++ meetup groups: Haifa::C++ and CoreCpp. It has attracted international and local audiences in 2019, was canceled in 2020 due to Covid and was organized as a local conference in 2021. This year it is planned again as an international conference.

Highlights from the agenda 

The exact schedule is yet to be announced, but we know there’ll be keynote speeches from known C++ figures. It will start with a workshop day, featuring a few workshops by known speakers. It will also include two days of the main conference, with three tracks of parallel talks.

When is it?

September 5th 2022 

Where is it?

Tel Aviv, Israel

Online, or face-to-face?

Face-to-face only. 

Will Incredibuild be there?

Yes! We are there and will be happy to see you.

ACCU 

What is it?

ACCU conference is known to be focused on C and C++, together with other related topics. It opens a stage for talks on other languages such as C#, Java, Python etc. which makes it relevant for audiences who are interested in C++ but opens an eye on other technologies and domains. In 2022 ACCU celebrated 25 years, having its own enthusiastic group of attendees who are happy to meet each other again every year, yet being very welcoming for new attendees.

Highlights from the agenda 

It is too far away to foresee the agenda for 2023. But from the 2022 agenda, it can be said that the conference focuses both on high-quality C++ talks, as well as more generic talks on other related technologies.

When is it?

Date not published yet, expected date around April 2023.

Where is it?

Bristol, UK (location for 2023 not announced yet, but would probably stay in Bristol)

Online, or face-to-face?

Face-to-face and online. 

C++ Now

What is it?

C++ Now is perceived as the most advanced C++ conference out there. But don’t get confused by “most advanced”, as it is not only for experts and is highly welcoming. It is a smaller conference, which makes it a bit more intimate. You can find yourself discussing the features of the next C++ standard with the people who are working on the feature proposals. The conference started as boostcon and later on was rebranded as C++ Now. There are more talks which are future focused than in other conferences. And talks tend to evolve into discussions as the audience is very involved.

Highlights from the agenda 

Highlights from 2022 include: library in a week, a traditional effort of implementing a new C++ library during conference morning sessions; Talks by Dave Abrahams, Jeff Garland, Fedor Pikus, Jon Lakos, Bill Hoffman, Inbal Levi, David Sankel, Lisa Lippincott, Phil Nash, Michael Caisse and our very own Amir Kirsh to name a few – on topics such as: coroutines, CMake and modules, C++23 features, undefined behavior, Customization Methods, Teaching C++ and future thoughts on C++.

When is it?

Date for 2023 is not published yet, the expected date is around May 2023.

Where is it?

Aspen, Colorado, USA

Online, or face-to-face?

Face-to-face only. 

A Bonus

As a bonus, you may want to attend the next ISO C++ meeting, face-to-face and online, in Kona, Hawaii, starting on November 7th, 2022. This is a full week meeting for advancing the next ISO C++ standard, mainly relevant for ISO C++ members.

If you want to attend you have to be sent as an official attendee by your company, or you may attend as a viewer. For more information check the ISO C++ website.

How to make sure you don’t miss it
