CppCon 2017 is finally here!
Backtrace is proud to return to the show as both a sponsor and exhibitor for the second year in a row. CppCon is an amazing conference put on annually by the C++ community. Their commitment to making CppCon bigger and better every year, while still remaining community focused, is prevalent throughout the show. This year has record attendees, phenomenal speakers, and frequent events. Add the recent release of C++17 to the mix and you can be sure that this is going to be a week to remember.
In 2016, Backtrace sent two people from our team, gave an open-session talk, and sponsored the show at the bronze level. We had such an amazing time (here’s our recap), that we decided to step up our game. For 2017, we’re sending no fewer than 7 team members, delivering another open-session talk, and are proud to be the first-ever T-shirt sponsors for CppCon.
Where and When to Find Us
We’re exhibiting on Wednesday and Thursday, so stop by our table for a demo, free t-shirt, and 3D puzzle! We’ve got a friendly, well-groomed team who would love to talk to you about your software. Oh, and the puzzle is quite a challenge. If you think you’re up to the task, stop by and give it a try!
For our open session this year our CTO/Co-Founder, Samy Al Bahra, is presenting “Optimizations and Debug Quality” on Wednesday at 12:30pm. Here’s a sneak peak:
Have you ever had an assert get triggered only to result in a useless core dump with missing variable information or an invalid callstack? Common factors that go into selecting a C or C++ compiler are: availability, correctness, compilation speed and application performance. A factor that is often neglected is debug information quality, which symbolic debuggers use to reconcile application executable state to the source-code form that is familiar to most software engineers… Check out the full details of his talk (and RSVP) here.
As t-shirt sponsors, you need look no further than your CppCon t-shirt sleeve to find us! However, we do hope to meet you in person as well. If you’re going to be at the show and interested in scheduling a time to meet up, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll find a time to talk.
TL;DR? Here’s our schedule
See you Wednesday and Thursday!
