C++ and Beyond 2011: David McKeone - C++11 as a Fresh Language for Young People
While attending C++ and Beyond 2011, I was able to convince a few fellow attendees to get in front of the camera and talk about C++, how they use the language, and what they think of C++11 and C++ and Beyond.
Here we meet David McKeone, a relative newcomer to C++. This is interesting because most of the attendess at C&B have at least 10-15 years' experience and some even more. The fact that somebody like David with a few years of experience under his belt comes to an event like this speaks volumes about the content: something for everyone. More interesting is David's fresh, even inspirational perspectives on C++ as a young person's language, too -> there is no prerequisite for native developers having gray hair, long beards, pencil holders in shirt pockets and pants that aren't long enough in the inseam...
Topics discussed include how David uses C++ in the theatre ticketing software he maintains, his perspecitves on C++ and Beyond, C++11 and some advice for folks coming to C++ (or coming back to it).
Thanks David for spending time in front of the C9 camera.
