The agenda is as follows:

  • 18:00: Sandwiches.
  • 18:30: Session 1: Build a database-independent cross-platform persistence layer with Qt (Johan Decorte) Most applications need some kind of persistence. Often relatonal databases are a good choice to store and retrieve data. Besides a cross-platform IDE Qt also provides extensive general-purpose libraries including a database-independent, object-oriented and clean SQL Module API. You can decide even at runtime wether your target database is e.g. Oracle, MS SQL Server or mySQL. Both plain SQL and stored procedure calls are supported.
  • 19:30: Break
  • 19:45: Session 2: Objects? No Thanks! (Wouter van Ooijen) Micro-controller programming can benefit from compile-time polymorphism without paying a run-time price by using static class templates. For small micro-controllers (kilobytes of memory) C++ run-time polymorphism (using objects and virtual methods) is often deemed too expensive in ROM, RAM, and run-time overhead. This talk shows how templates can be used to implement compile-time polymorphism, and static classes to avoid the need for run-time objects. This technique can produce highly modular and composable code that is still as efficient as dedicated C code, but offers better prospects for re-use. This approach is illustrated with an abstraction for GPIO (General Purpose Input Output) pins and ports, with an implementation on an LPC1114 microcontroller, and a number of decorators for pins and numbers.
  • 20:45: Short presentation and guided tour by Newtec.
  • 21:00: Drink

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

There are 50 seats available for this event.

Next BeCPP UG Meeting Planned For December 3rd, 2015

October 22, 2015 Marc Gregoire Events

The agenda is as follows:

  • 18:00: Sandwiches.
  • 18:30: Session 1: Move semantics && rvalue references, part 2 (Bert Rodiers) In this presentation we will continue where we left off a year ago. First we will discuss some alternative implementations for the move operators and briefly talk about how to pass arguments. The rest of the talk dives into rvalue references in combination with deduced types and perfect forwarding.
  • 19:30: Break
  • 19:45: Session 2: Cross-Platform Mobile App Development with Visual C++ 2015 (Marc Gregoire) Visual C++ 2015 supports the development of apps for the Windows platform as well as for Android and iOS. A single code base, possibly with a thin platform-specific UI layer, can be compiled to run on Windows, Android, and iOS. The resulting binary can be published to a device and debugged, all from within Visual C++ 2015. This presentation introduces you to such cross-platform mobile app development, including debugging and emulation, and includes a number of demos.
  • 20:45: Short presentation by Selligent.

Next BeCPP UG Meeting Planned For June 18th, 2015

May 23, 2015 Marc Gregoire Events

The next meeting of the Belgian C++ Users Group is planned for Thursday June 18th, 2015 at 18:00 at OM Partners.

OM Partners ( https://ompartners.com/ ) is sponsoring this event by providing the location, drinks and catering.

The agenda is as follows:

  • 18:00: Sandwiches.
  • 18:30: Session 1: The C++ Memory Model and Atomics. (Peter Van Weert) Learn more about the C++ memory model introduced by C++11. Get answers to questions such as what exactly is this C++ memory model? What does it provide and guarantee? What are atomics? How do atomics relate to the memory model? How to use atomics to write thread-safe code? And more.
  • 19:30: Break
  • 19:45: Session 2: Portable C++ File System abstraction (Lieven de Cock) Via the standard library we can open and close files, we can read and write to them, be it old style FILE* or fstream. So content manipulation is available in a portable way. But how about File (and Directory) Management. On Posix you might have done stat, opendir, readdir, closedir, …. Others might be acquainted with Windows Api methods like FindFirstFile, CreateFile,  CopyFile, … But nothing portable. There are however several libraries who can bring a lot of such functionality for File and Directory Management. We will look at 2 such libraries, boost::FileSystem and Poco::FileSystem. Finishing up with a sneak peak on the upcoming C++ library standard proposal for File System. So it is time to code in a portable way now, and the future will even be more bright. Get yourself a new HD or SSD because we are managing the files from within the C++ code in a portable way.
  • 20:45: Short presentation by OM Partners.
