C++ on Sea is an international C++ conference taking place by the sea, in the UK.
Our current venue is in Folkestone, near the entrance to the channel tunnel.
For 2020 our keynote speakers will be Hana Dusíková, Walter Brown and Sean Parent.
We're thrilled to announce that Sean Parent will be joining us as our third keynote speaker for 2020.
A few things had to click in to place before we could make this announcement,
so it's a big relief that we can finally let the cat out of the bag!
Some years ago, Sean worked on Photoshop at Adobe.
Apparently he liked it so much we went back to work on it again!
He's also worked at Apple and Google - but many in the community know him,
particularly, for raising our awareness of algorithms.
We welcome and encourage people from all parts of the community - very much including those that identify as minorities (which, relative to our community includes women), and commit to supporting you in any way we can.
C++ on Sea
abides by the Berlin Code of Conduct
C++ on Sea is hosted in Folkestone in Kent, UK.
This historic seaside town is also home to the channel tunnel and, as such, has excellent links to the rest of europe.
It's also very accessible from London with the UK's (currently) only high speed link, the HS1.

The conference will be held in Leas Cliff Hall. This working theater also has a dedicated conference suite. Built into the cliffs, and with floor-to-ceiling glass overlooking the sea on three sides, the views are spectacular!
The venue is about a 15 minute walk from Folkestone Central station, or ten minutes walk to the bustling town centre. As well as the modern town the old quarter, home to art galleries, curio shops and bohemian cafes and restaurants, extends down to the picturesque harbour.
Although the venue is split across three floors, connected via staircases, it is also fully accessible via elevator.
