C++ on Sea is an international C++ conference (usually) taking place by the sea, in the UK. Our current venue is in Folkestone, near the entrance to the channel tunnel. However, due to the Coronavirus epidemic, this year the conference will take place online.

In the last post I mentioned that workshops would "run the following week" from the new conference dates. I also said that they would "also run on different days".

We can now share the specific dates for the workshops.

13th July (mon) Klaus Iglberger Modern C++ Design Patterns
20th July (mon) Nicolai Josuttis Move Semantics - The Complete Guide
21st July (tue) Rainer Grimm Concurrency with modern C++
22nd July (wed) Clare Macrae & Llewellyn Falco Testing Legacy Code effectively with Approval Tests

Note that Klaus' workshop will be on the Monday before the main conference.

Registrations are open. Places will still be limited, even online, to make sure attendees get the best experience - so book soon if you can.
