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

Log in to save this to your schedule 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.

MSc Student, University of Victoria
Hi, nice to meet you! My name is Nicolas, and my main interests are game development, real-time rendering, graphics hardware and graphics APIs. I tackle problems at the intersection of designing efficient computer algorithms and leveraging the strengths of hardware. My favorite thing about C++ is that it lets me write detailed systems-level code and high-level GUI code together in a single robust language.
