Speaker:
Christopher Harpum, University of Hull

Abstract:

As one of the most used and oldest languages, C++ has stood the test of time by staying true to its core values of a performant “no compromise” programming language. Over the years we’ve seen significant changes to help modernise the language, with that development continuing in full force today. Let’s see how far things have come, and where they’re heading in the future and why, almost certainly, C++ is here to stay.

About the speaker:

The speaker is a student at the University of Hull currently studying computer science, a hobbyist programmer of nearly 10 years, and a C++ fanboy for about the same. He has spent most of his free time actively engaging in the development of the language, reading research papers and taking advantage of every new feature as it becomes available.

The talk will be preceded by the AGM of the BCS Humberside Branch. Any members who wish to serve on the committee should contact us to be nominated at the AGM. We would welcome further support from our members.

Light refreshments will be provided.
