Yearning for some more wonderful C++ talks? Well you're in luck! Join us for talks, chit chat, pizza, and drinks at 7pm on Monday 9th November! Just like last time, the meet-up will be hosted at Cloudreach (77 Montgomery Street). For those who are driving, there will be some limited parking available.

This time we have two talks about the use of C++ in the real world:
- John Spray from Red Hat will be talking about the use of C++ in Ceph.
- Chris Brown from the University of St. Andrews will be talking about the ParaPhrase and RePhrase projects.

Thanks very much to John and Chris for volunteering to speak at the event, and thanks again to the sponsors Codeplay and Toshiba Medical Visualisation Systems.

Hope to see everyone there! If you have any questions, feel free to email me or contact me in any other way.

How I wish I could attend!

Pass by value or by const reference — why is the simple task of writing function parameters so complicated in C++? Instead, let's keep it simple.

+Joseph Mansfield: agreed. Don't store a reference. If something is to be stored or is an output parameter, use pointers.

A simple interpretation of the mysterious value categories of C++: lvalues represent objects and rvalues represent values.

Great explanation !  Thank you.

File input is often mishandled in C++. Find out why conditioning on eof() might not do what you expect, and learn the correct, idiomatic approach to validating input.

+Joseph Mansfield​ I'm not talking about what your code does or doesn't handle. I'm making a counter argument against your insistence that all text files should end in a newline. I strongly disagree with you; as I said there is no way to enforce that nor would there be any benefit even if you could.

Fantastic service. A couple of months ago I accidentally cracked the screen on my Nexus 5, left it at Hex the next day, and it was ready with a brand new screen a few hours later (for a respectable price). Fast forward to last week, the screen started misbehaving (no idea where the problem lies), but Hex were happy to get it fixed again under the warranty. Very helpful and relaxed staff - no complaints. Highly recommend for any repairs you might need.
