Highlighting the Student and Support Tickets for Meeting C++ 2019
published at 04.09.2019 14:06 by Jens Weller
With the Schedule for Meeting C++ 2019 being complete regarding submitted talks, I want to highlight, that there is an opportunity for folks to attend the conference with a free ticket!
TL;DR: You can register for a Student and/or Support ticket.
Also, additionally the application form for the volunteer program is open. Since many years Meeting C++ gives away 50 tickets, for the last years it has been a split 1:1 between students and folks that other wise couldn't make it to the conference. Both programs draw the ticket winners from pool of registrations. You need to create a Meeting C++ account, in order to take part in this program. Volunteers will have a use of this account during the conference, and I am thinking of ways to make it also useful for attendees and the more general online Meeting C++ audience.
- Student program
- You need to be a student, and bring your valid student ID to the event.
- Support program
- For those who can't afford to buy a ticket
- You may leave a short message why you are taking part in this program
- reasons may include financial support, being part of an underrepresented group and/or diversity.
It is quite unique to offer 50 free tickets for a conference like Meeting C++ 2019. Mainly its supported through the sponsoring of the conference, so if you'd like to support this, think about asking your employer to become a sponsor of Meeting C++ 2019 or being listed on Meeting C++ as a C++ Employer.
