Titus is a Senior Staff Software Engineer at Google, where he has worked since 2010. Today, he is the chair of the subcommittee for the design of the C++ standard library. At Google, he is the library lead for Google’s C++ codebase: 250 million lines of code that will be edited by 12K distinct engineers in a month. For the last 9 years, Titus and his teams have been organizing, maintaining, and evolving the foundational components of Google’s C++ codebase using modern automation and tooling. Along the way he has started several Google projects that are believed to be in the top 10 largest refactorings in human history.
As a direct result of helping to build out refactoring tooling and automation, Titus has encountered first-hand a huge swath of the shortcuts that engineers and programmers may take to “just get something working”. That unique scale and perspective has informed all of his thinking on the care and feeding of software systems. His most recent project is the book “Software Engineering at Google”, to be published by O’Reilly in late 2019/early 2020.
Tobias graduated from the University of Kaiserslautern in Germany with a degree in computer engineering. Before joining Nokia in 2009 to work on Qt Creator he has been a consultant, specializing in systems administration and later Qt software development. He went with Qt to Digia and now works for The Qt Company in Berlin, Germany. Tobias has been an open source contributor ever since his student days and is now a maintainer in the Qt project, responsible for the version control plugins in Qt Creator. He also is heavily involved with the project management plugins. In his spare time he does way to many computer related things, but also manages to read books, go to the movies and play with his son.
Tobias is currently working as a software developer and product manager on Boden. He’s passionate about start-ups and entrepreneurship. Tobias also has a background as CTO in audio software, cloud technology, and web development.
Tom arrived in London at age 22 with £200 to his name, not knowing a single person. After 6 months Tom managed to start business - PC Service, that provides IT support to SMBs and runs it since then.

His contributions to C++20 include the new char8_t builtin type. A C++ minion with 20 years professional experience. Husband and father of two awesome boys.
Tony Van Eerd has been coding for well over 25 years, and hopefully coding well for some of that. Mostly in graphics/video/film/broadcast (at Inscriber & Adobe), writing low level pixel++, high level UI, threading, and everything else. He now enables painting with light at Christie Digital. He is on the C++ Committee. He is a Ninja and a Jedi.
