SG14 meeting Wednesday:Towards better support in C++ for Games and Finance

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Two significant areas where C++ violates "don't pay for what you don't use" are RTTI and exception handling. So much so that some groups turn it off for performance reasons.

Two industries that do so but still use C++ heavily are Games and Financial/Trading. They are among the highest employer of C++ programmers. So have you wondered how C++ can be improved for low-latency applications like Games and Financial/Trading. The emphasis is performance in low-latency, soft-real-time, simulation, graphics, simulation applications.

ISO C++ decided to start a Study Group 14 to officially analyze proposals to improve C++ in these important domains and it will occur on Wednesday as an official C++ Standard meeting. If you are in these domains and are interested in analyzing proposals, or just want to see how a C++ Standard meeting is run, please come to this Open Content talk to find out more about Wednesday's SG14 meeting.

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.
