C++Now 2019 was an exhilarating experience for all attendees. The weather was not always perfect (although it was for the picnic), all the Compile Time Magic keynotes were well received, we had a lot of new faces, and the energy was fresh and exciting.
This post will announce the “Best Session” ballot winners, share some trip reports, and announce the dates and location for C++Now 2020.
Announcing the results of the Best Session balloting by C++Now 2019 attendees.
In 2017, Tony van Eerd did so well in the Best Session balloting that the joke was that we’d have to start calling it the Tony Awards. But even Tony’s memorable showing was bested this year by first-time attendee, Conor Hoekstra, who dominated the voting.
Best Presentation Runners Up:
We tried a new category of best overall speaker and that award went to:
Best Speaker Runners Up (tied):
We tried another new category to recognize the best up and coming speaker. This year that turned out to be redundant:
Best New (to me) Speaker Runners Up:
We had a tie in this category:
Most Educational Runner Up:
Most Engaging Runners Up (tied):
Most Inspiring Runners Up:
Some of the early C++Now 2019 trip reports have started to arrive. We’ll update this announcement as more trip reports are filed.
C++Now 2019 wrapped up with the announcement of C++Now 2020.
The dates for next year’s conference will be May 3 - 8, 2020 and the location will again be the Aspen Center for Physics in Aspen, Colorado (with some sessions at the adjacent Aspen Institute). The Aspen Meadows Resort will again serve as the official hotel for the conference.
Thanks for helping make the program a success. The conference organizers would like to send a big thank you for a successful C++Now to all the speakers, the attendees, Patty Fox, the staff of the Aspen Center for Physics, the staff of Aspen Meadows Resort, the Program Committee, the Student/Volunteers, the conference planning committee, Software Freedom Conservancy, and, of course, all of our wonderful sponsors.
We hope to see you in Aspen next May.
