With Meeting C++ 2023 now being less than 200 days away, I'd like to remind you about the details of the call for talks and this years "Speaking about C++" event!

Call for Talks

The call for talks is already open and the first talks have been already submitted by various speakers. Thank you!

You can submit your talk until June 18th. Meeting C++ is looking for a diverse set of talks and speakers! You are very welcome to submit your talk to the conference, even if its your first time speaking! This years conference will be again hybrid, and its a great opportunity to give a talk and start speaking! Maybe you'd like to learn something new about C++ and like to present what you've learned about a feature of the standard, library or methology? And with Meeting Embedded being a part of Meeting C++, embedded talks are especially welcome!

If you are not able to come to Berlin, you still can submit your talk for the prerecorded track. Meeting C++ will feature an online track of prerecorded talks.

Technical speaking event - Speaking about C++

To promote this years call for talks, Meeting C++ online organizes an event about technical speaking for C++. On May 16th great speakers will share some of the aspects on preparing and giving talks with you, as this date is close to C++now, Meeting C++ will host a second event on May 31st. The format of the event is to host lightning talks about speaking and a panel afterwards, if you are a speaker and would like to contribute to this event submit your lightning talk until May 8th. The lightning talks will be later available on youtube.

Valueing new speakers and diversity

Your talk is welcome and the C++ community values your contribution!

I do want to motivate you to submit if you are not in the common group of folks who usually speak at our conferences in C++. Your contribution is valuable to the C++ community, and it is always good to hear new voices and views on our language. And online speaking offers a unique opportunity that you can contribute to this years conference. As a first step you can join the #include discord if you have any questions about speaking or are looking for feedback on your talk ideas. Also joining Meeting C++ online gives you a first impression how online C++ events feel for you. Meeting C++ online and Meeting C++ 2023 run under the Berlin Code of Conduct.

Meeting C++ has supported diversity efforts for C++ for a long time. Meeting C++ usually supports new speakers with a track of its own in Berlin for a few years now. I'm not sure if we have a full track of space in this year, but with enough submissions this might be the case again. Speakers that don't want or can not travel to the conference can choose to only speak online.
