Conference Organizing

Posted on Thursday, Jan 16, 2020
Rob and Jason are joined by Phil Nash, Adi Shavit and Fred Tingaud. They talk with the three meetup and conference organizers about their motivations for launching new C++ conferences last year and discuss some of the work involved in doing so.

Guests

Phil Nash

Phil Nash

Phil has spent the last year and a half doing things that might sound interesting for the next time he’s interviewed on CppCast. He might have overdone it. Aside from that he’s most commonly known as the original author of the test framework, Catch2. He’s been in or around C++ since the early 90s, but started coding in 1981 on a ZX-81 that he borrowed for six months. He’s worked in many domains, including finance and mobile and is now developer advocate for C++ and Swift tools at JetBrains.

Adi Shavit

Adi Shavit

Adi is an entrepreneur, speaker, consultant, software architect and a computer vision and machine learning expert with an emphasis on real-time applications. He specializes in building cross-platform, high-performance software combined with high production quality and maintainable code-bases. Adi is the founder of the Core C++ users group in Israel.
Having worked on proprietary software for most of his career, his most visible contribution to the world of open-source software is, somewhat ironically, the design of the OpenCV logo.

Fred Tingaud

Fred Tingaud

Fred Tingaud is a Principal Software Engineer at Murex where he maintains the C++ UI and front-end APIs. He is also the creator of quick-bench.com, co-organizer of CPPP conference, co-host of Paris C++ Meetup and an organizer of #include . His interests range from code efficiency and readability to UI ergonomics.
