C++ in Colleges Panel

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

Join a panel of college professors, recent and current undergraduates, and professionals with teaching and outreach experience as we discuss how to engage students in C++. Why is it important to teach C++ early, and is it an appropriate choice for a first programming language? Are colleges teaching C++ less than they used to? Are colleges teaching C++ well? How can the C++ community better engage students in open source and in industry?
