I was able to attend C++ and Beyond 2011 and it was a tremendous experience. I captured some great footage from the event for C9, like this end-of-last-day panel - Ask Us Anything - with Scott, Andrei and Herb. Great questions and excellent answers. This is the third and final panel from C&B 2011 to air on C9. The other two panels: C++11 and Concurrency and Parallelism - are very well worth your time if you haven't had a chance to watch/listen to them yet.
Thanks Andrei Alexandrescu, Scott Meyers and Herb Sutter for putting on such a great event for C++ developers and for allowing Channel 9 to broadcast some of it. I am so thrilled to learn that C++ and Beyond 2012 will take place August 5-8, 2012! I encourage you to attend (I know I'll be there!). It will be well worth your (and your company's) time. The way I think about C&B is: Mind-bending C++ content that's also practical, presented by industry experts who are very engaging, passionate about C++ and very approachable. The folks in attendance are stellar native developers from around the world, employing C++ in a variety of contexts.
Enjoy! Learn! Go native!
