WG21-SG14 – Making C++ better for games, embedded and financial developers

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

SG14 is the ISO C++ study group dedicated to programmers in the games, embedded and financial domain, focusing on a particular subset of use-cases: low-latency, real-time requirements and performance/efficiency. Convened in June 2015, it is the newest addition to the WG21 Study Group family, and it is the first to focus on an industrial domain rather than on a particular aspect of software development. We need your input: learn why and how at this talk.

With a thriving google group and regular, well attended teleconferences, several areas of investigation are subject to research. Expect discussion on cache-coherent containers, fixed-point representation, heterogeneous programming, and of course exception handling, as well as one or two diversions into the history of game development.

You may even come away with a desire to join this or any of the other study groups, and contribute ideas and papers to improve the language.
