Free pizza for Wednesday's Movie Night!

2nd July 2024 at 11:09

Movie Night poster

C++ on Sea 2024 has kicked off! We're on day two of the new two-day workshops and already the energy for the week is building.

Another new feature this year will be the Movie Night on Wednesday evening. Hosted by the indefatigable Walter Brown, this will use "video excerpts and short movies" to "go on an entertaining journey exploring and celebrating the programming profession, allowing us to reflect on where we’ve come from, and what it is that makes our profession great."

The Movie Night will run from 20:00 until gone 22:30. All this content is very welcome, but eagle-eyed attendees will have noticed that, with only 30 minutes between the lightning talks at the Movie Night, there is not a lot of time for going out to eat!

So we have arranged with venue to lay on pizza for the evening. The pizza should be served in the break between the lightning talks and the Movie Night - so stick around to eat and enjoy the movies!

(As a side note, we originally had a sponsor who was interested in covering the cost of the pizza. They had to pull out, so currently we are covering this from the conference budget. If any sponsor would like their name attached to the pizza evening please do let us know.)

Welcome to our second Gold Sponsor, Ripple

29th June 2024 at 12:56

This year we welcome a new sponsor, Ripple.

Being proof-of-stake rather than proof-of-work they can make some surprising claims about sustainability and carbon neutrality.

I'll let them say more in their own words - but look out for Ripple employees who will be present (without a booth) at the conference for more depth.

Ripple is the leader in enterprise blockchain and crypto solutions, transforming how the world moves, manages, tokenizes and stores value. Ripple’s business solutions are faster, more transparent, and more cost effective - solving inefficiencies that have long defined the status quo. And together with partners and the larger developer community, we identify use cases where crypto technology will inspire new business models and create opportunity for more people.

With every solution, we’re realizing a more sustainable global economy and planet - increasing access to inclusive and scalable financial systems while leveraging carbon neutral blockchain technology and a green digital asset, XRP. This is how we deliver on our mission to build crypto solutions for a world without economic borders.

Our thanks to Citadal Securities as Gold sponsor for 2024

Citadel are back with us again for 2024 as Gold sponsor. Do visit them at their booth if you're going to be in Folkestone next week.

Here's a bit more about them in their own words:

Citadel Securities is a leading global market maker that provides liquidity across a range of securities, making markets more competitive and resilient for all investors.

For 20 years, the brightest minds in finance, trading, engineering and the sciences have come together to meet the liquidity needs of our global clients and drive down the cost of trading.
