18.15-19.00 – Ólafur Waage: We are all C++ teachers
19.00-19.30 – Meet & Eat
19.30-20.15 – Lightning talks special
20.15- ……. – Q&A
The doors will be open from 17:30.
The program in detail:
*Ólafur Waage: We are all C++ teachers
Explaining an idea is hard. This difficulty grows exponentially the more people you need to talk to. This talk will focus on my journey in learning C++ and then teaching it to others. Touching on things like being a student at University, opening my Twitter DM's to the world, showing common pitfalls in the language and how we can approach others when we want to explain a complex subject.
Ólafur Waage, a native Icelander that has lived in Sweden for the past 4 years. A Senior Programmer at Ubisoft Massive on the Uplay PC Backend Team. Before he was a Developer in the Air Traffic Control industry. Lover of games, music and puzzles.
* *Lightning talks:* *
As an appetizer for our lightning talk raffle we will have some lightning talks.
(Order of the talks might change)
-Arvid Norberg : The C++ abstract machine
-Björn Fahller: My favorite memory leak
-Fadi Bitar: Developer Experience (DX): Extending UX principles to developers
-Harald Achitz: Some fun with the , operator
* *Lightning talk raffle:* *
This is an idea we copy from Core C++, the C++ User group of Mevasserat Ziyyon.
Thanks to Adi Shavit for sharing this idea with us and sending us 10 fortune cookies.
Each cookie contains one of the following topics:
1. Horror Story / A Nasty Bug I Had
2. A Cool [Non-GoF] Design Pattern
3. What [I wish] My Mentors [Had] Told Me
4. Good/Bad Interview Questions
5. Book/Video Recommendations
6. A Cool/Interesting Algorithm
7. A Little Known C++ Feature (class enum, override, final, delegating ctors...)
8. Coding Style Guide: My [Company's] Recommendations
9. Debugging Tips
10. How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Embrace ____________
The idea is to find 10 volunteers. Each takes a fortune cookie and gets therefore one of the topics randomly assigned.
We than prepares the talks for a future meetup (October or November).
Note: Volunteers may change topics in between or use any other topic if the selected one does not fit.
It worked great in Mevasserat Ziyyon, so I think we should also be possible to do this in Stockholm!
This is also a great opportunity for every one who wants to give a talk but misses a topic.
