Hi all, We'll be organizing some lightning talks at Amazon HQ in Amsterdam!
Having many different topics is in theory interesting for the attendees, but also for speakers it can be more "doable" to prepare something of short duration as opposed to a full-length hour long talk, and it's a nice way to practice presenting.
To anyone interested in giving a short talk about something around the topic of C++: you would very welcome and please let us know. =) You can also leave suggestions for others if you don't want to give a talk yourself.
For example a lightning talk can be 1, 2, 5, 10 or 15 minutes. And also in whatever format suits you. You can use slides, no slides, just show some code, do a quiz/etc..
Last time we did this in 2016 the atmosphere was really friendly, you view it as an example: https://www.meetup.com/The-Dutch-Cpp-Group/events/229732222/
Already a few people have expressed interest in giving a talk, once the list has grown a bit I will update it here in the description.
### Talks ###
Not for all talks I have full titles yet, but here is the list so far. If I forgot to add anyone please remind me, it is definitely a mistake in that case.
- Michael - Selene: Image representation and I/O in C++14 (15 mins)
- Petar - math-linear-algebra library c+11/14 (10 mins)
- Chiel - Modular Allocators
- Niels - C++ and Embedded development as a student
- Orest - Argument Dependent Lookup (20 mins)
- Sagar - exception of *no naked new* rule
- Oleksandr - CMake
- Andrei - CMake
- Albert - Type erasure, the magic behind std::function (15mins)
- Ray - Creating a composable class with variadic templates (10mins)
I know of a at least two people who are considering preparing something so the list will probably grow a bit more, and still we could use a few extra talks!
