Ever wish there were a way to condense the entire CppCon 2015 into less than an hour? Well, realistically speaking, there may not be a way to really do that, but we hope this month's episode comes close! CppCon 2015 was packed to the brim with all sorts of great content, great people, and great conversations!
This video features 16 chat sessions with speakers from CppCon, who are all here to tell you a little about themselves, summarize their talk(s) so you can quickly see if they interest you, and provide tips/tricks/traps on using C++ -- that's advice straight from mouths of the experts so you can see if you're already doing awesome, and/or maybe learn something new!
All links to the speakers' talks (and additional content) are provided below. Hope you enjoy!
