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 is the original author of Catch2, regular speaker at conferences, trainer, organizer of C++ on Sea and the C++ London meet-up, co-host of cpp.chat and No Diagnostic Required podcasts, and recently moved to SonarSource as Developer Advocate.

More generally he’s an advocate for good testing practices, TDD and using the type system and tools and functional techniques to reduce complexity, increase correctness, and is not afraid of ABI breaks.

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<C++> . His interests range from code efficiency and readability to UI ergonomics.
