Announcements

We are announcing the final of this year’s three keynotes, all speaking on the theme:

What can C++ learn from other languages?

Ryan Newton, member of the Glasgow Haskell Compiler steering committee, will explain how Haskell limits user capabilities and why that is empowering.

Many of our favorite C++Now keynotes have presented views that differ from accepted C++ philosophy and thoughtfully question common practice in the C++ community.

We have a few keynotes this year and they share a common theme that reflects our desire for new perspectives:

What can C++ learn from other languages?

Naturally, we started with Rust.
