Some reflections on last years Meeting C++ conference, and what changes are coming for this years Meeting C++ Conference, which will be announced next week. This year will be the 5th conference, with the experience of running the event 4 times, it will be again, the best Meeting C++ conference I have organized so far. But lets first look back, and learn from last years and previous events.

Welcome to the 3rd and last part about current proposals for C++17 and beyond. In the last part, there was an overview on the current Technical Specifications, most likely to move into C++ after C++17. The full proposal listing of 2016 sorted by subgroups contains many more proposals then I can cover.

Part 2 of my series about the current proposals for C++17. This part is covering the Technical Specifications (TS), which are currently released. Some of them will make it into C++17. Those not making it into C++17, should be available in the namespace std::experimental, if they are not a language feature.

Last night, I've been coding until 3 am. Working on an API which will connect my CMS to JSON libraries in a generic way. For this I did study different JSON Libraries in the past weeks. I almost wrote another one ;) Yet, I had the idea to write a generic interface to interface with some of these libraries, so that my own code is not hard wired to a certain API.

My CMS project has grown quite a bit, and there are a few places where I think I should refactor the code. One of the larger ones is that TreeItem::get<T> returns a pointer instead of a reference. Another one is related to how the Qt UI application is acting when opening a new panel in the TabControl. There used to be a noticeable delay...

The next big milestone for my CMS is to actually generate HTML files, and I'm almost there. I'll reach it in the next two weeks, most code is written, just a little bit of refactoring is needed. This blog post is about searching and replacing in strings. As I started last week with implementing the functionality, that turns the data in my CMS into an HTML website.

Part of my new year resolution was to do weekly backups. Back in 2013 I already had written a small application, which writes several directories in one zip archive. I continued the work on this in the last days.

Almost two years ago I blogged about founding C++ User Groups, since then I have learned a lot more on the topic, and I want to share that experience with you in this blog post. While my focus here at Meeting C++ is C++, this post is more on the topic of a User Group, so its also useful to you, if you want to start a user group on something else. Yet, I might strive away into C++ lands in this post...

I used to do overviews on all papers for a meeting, and when I find the time, I will do this for upcoming meetings again. I will try to post a best-of later, with all the good stuff on concepts, modules and more later. Currently I'm to busy, I just got back from CppCon, and will go to the Qt World Summit next week (meet me there!).
