C/C++ Challenge Belgium & The Netherlands 2019 by Dekimo

October 15, 2019 Marc Gregoire Events

The Dekimo C/C++ Challenge is a contest designed to inspire creative and enthusiastic C/C++ Students & Professionals located in Belgium and The Netherlands. It is also a unique opportunity to fight an epic battle between Belgium and The Netherlands in the field of C/C++ programming: it’s not about the best soccer team, it’s all about the best software engineers!!

The first round is played online. The students and the professionals will compete in separate leagues so that everyone gets a fair chance in competing to be crowned as C/C++ Champion.

Registration is free and open during the entire duration of the Challenge.

At the end of the online round, the top 30 players will be invited for the finals.

  • The 15 best Professionals
  • The 15 best Students

The finals are intended to determine the top player in each league. Of course, there are cool prizes to be won that all have to do with smart electronics (a nifty drone for the winner in each league, and a nice voucher for the runners-up!)

If you are interested, visit the official website for more information.

The agenda is as follows:

  • 18:00: Reception with food.
  • 18:30: Session 1: C++20: What’s in it for you? (Marc Gregoire)
    With the current three-year pace of C++ releases, the next release is scheduled for 2020, C++20. This presentation gives an overview of what you can expect in the new standard. It starts with discussing the C++20 language features that will be added by the C++20 standard, such as concepts, coroutines, templated lambdas, the spaceship operator, pack expansion in lambda captures, string literals as template parameters, extra initializer for range-based for loop, modules, and more. Next, we’ll delve into the new Standard Library features, such as ranges, std::span, atomic smart pointers, and more. Depending on the outcome of the next C++ Standard Committee meeting, the list of new features might include improved futures, task blocks, and text formatting. If you want a concise overview of what the C++20 standard will offer, then this presentation is for you.
  • 19:30: Break
  • 19:45: Session 2: From Iterators To Ranges — The Upcoming Evolution Of the Standard Library (Arno Schödl)
    Pairs of iterators are ubiquitous throughout the C++ library. It is generally accepted that combining such a pair into a single entity usually termed Range delivers more concise and readable code. Defining the precise semantics of such Range concept proves surprisingly tricky, however. Theoretical considerations conflict with practical ones. Some design goals are mutually incompatible altogether.
  • 20:45: Introduction to think-cell, followed by a drink.

Professional C++, 4th Edition
We will be giving away 2 copies of Professional C++, the 4th Edition.

C++17 Standard Library Quick Reference
We will also give away a copy of C++17 Standard Library Quick Reference.

The event is free for everyone, but you need to register for it.

  • 19:30: Break
  • 19:45: Session 2: Statistical Scientific programming: challenges in converting R to C++ (Olivia Quinet)
    Scientific programming is in itself a challenge due to several concomitant issues and requirements including low response time, low memory usage, minimizing numerical errors, error propagation.
    R is a programming language for statistical computation providing a wide set of packages for linear and non linear modeling, statistical tests, …
    This talk will focus on the different Object-Oriented strategies implemented to overcome those challenges, speed up the computation while reducing the memory footprint.
