ACCU is a four-day conference, but it also has a day of full-day pre-conference workshops. For ACCU 2017, we have, on Tuesday 2017-04-25, four workshops for you to choose from. In no particular order (*):
Brad Chamberlain is going to give us A Programmer’s Introduction to Chapel. Anyone interested in parallel code on any computer, but especially on multi-multicore processor clusters, will be interested in Chapel. It is a disruptive technology to replace Fortran, C, C++, etc. with a programming language that uses modern idioms to make programming parallel system fun.
Felix Petriconi will introduce The Art of Writing Reasonable Concurrent Code. All about dataflow based approaches (CSP and channels), this workshop will get people writing concurrent (and parallel) C++14 code running with nicer more manageable and maintainable code, with little or no debugging required.
Nico Josuttis will get us Moving to C++17. A workshop for anyone wanting to use the latest features of C++ now, today.
Seb Rose and Jon Jagger will be educating people about Testable Architecture If you are having difficulties getting you application into a well tested state, this is the workshop for you.
All four of these workshops really are "must attend" workshops. However don’t dither, plump for one and sign up – today. Click through REGISTER FOR ACCU 2017 HERE to register, and sign up for your chosen workshop.
(*) Well actually there is an order, but it is left as an exercise for the reader to discern it.
