C++ on Sea is an international C++ conference taking place by the sea, in the UK. Our venue is in Folkestone, Kent, near the entrance to the channel tunnel.

Our 2023 event will run from 27th-30th June (including the workshops day) and we'll be announcing more information soon. Check back here, subscribe to our RSS feed, or register by email for updates, to keep up to date.

C++ on Sea 2023

22nd October 2022 at 17:23

As we stare down the tunnel of autumn to the winter, ahead, what better time to think about our plans for next summer?!

C++ on Sea will be back by the sea, again, for 2023. This time we'll be running in the last week of June (27th-30th). Of course we hope for another warm sunny week, as we had this year - but the British weather is as unpredictable as ever, so no guarantees.

We're back in the same venue, the quirky, but characterful Leas Cliff Hall in Folkestone. The format will be similar: one full workshop day followed by a three day conference (but this time finishing on a Friday).

A limited number of Super Early Bird tickets are available now at a larger discount. Once they are gone Early Bird tickets will remain available until the speakers are announced (or they run out) - after which tickets will be full price.

We'll soon open the call for speakers and provide more information but, for now, we'll leave you with our first two keynote speakers:

Lisa Lippincott has been bending our minds with keynotes and other talks on the mathematics that underpins our programs for many years - and has been contributing to some of the more arcane corners of the C++ standard for even longer.

Sean Parent has rotated through Apple, Adobe, Google and back to Adobe - all the while teaching us how to eschew raw loops in favour of picking the right algorithms. Sean was originally due give us a keynote in 2020, before we moved online. We're glad he's agreed to give us another try.

C++ on Sea is hosted at the Leas Cliff Hall in Folkestone in Kent, UK, overlooking the English Channel. 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. For more comprehensive travel information, see the page, Getting to C++ on Sea

The Leas Cliff Hall is a working theater that 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.
