LMS International

This time, there will be one speaker, giving two presentations of one hour on one subject.
The agenda is as follows:

  • 18:00: Sandwiches.
  • 18:30: Session 1: Strings and String Manipulation in C++, Part 1 (Lieven de Cock)
    Once there were c-arrays, evolution brought us std::string. This made life easier, and less manual reimplementation was needed because of the power std::string brought to the table.
    Nevertheless we still keep on reimplementing basic and advanced string manipulation functionality.
    By this continuously reinventing the wheel we spend a lot of time fixing the same mistakes, while out there are tried and tested and proven libraries. C++11 also brings more power, but we will focus on boost string manipulations.
    Basic manipulations, like replace, find, erase, split, join, trim, …, next to lexical_cast, boost tokenizer, regex (both boost and std) will be explained and show cased. Next to the lexical_cast we will mention std::to_string. Similar library functionality provided by the POCO libraries will be shown too.
    String power is at your fingers for free, just say the magic word.
  • 19:30: Break
  • 19:45: Session 2: Strings and String Manipulation in C++, Part 2 (Lieven de Cock)
  • 20:45: Demo of an LMS International software product followed by a drink.

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

There are 40 seats available for this event.

Note: The deadline for registrations is October 29th, 2013!
