This is a nice introduction to mocking.

B-trees are the next big thing in data structures. Ask me about this at the workshop.

I think we should discuss the implications of iterator invalidation further. Do you think that the STL specification is likely to accept invalidation of map/set types' iterators, or that another container type will be specified?

Also, is the "safe" iterator model scaleable?  Each iterator's "last valid generation" number may change with an insertion/deletion. Does the set, then, track its outstanding iterators?

The performance characteristics seem superior to the current set/map, though the chop in the second graph scares me a bit. Drilling down into the performance characteristics might prove a valuable exercise.

I am pushing to update our website. http://www.accu-usa.org/
I really think it needs a major refresh.
What do you want to see?
Here is what I'm thinking about:

  Our organization:
    Links to this community, the meetup, the parent ACCU.
    Schedule of upcoming events
    Maps, instructions to locations
    Photos of talks
    Comments from participants

  Our members/presenters:
    Blog roll: Links to local/member blogs and blogs of recent presenters.
    Twitter list: twitter handles of members and presenters

  Outside Links: We should link to isocpp.org, C++ on redit, C++ questions on Stack Overflow, C++ classes at local schools, C++ conferences whether local or not.

   Videos: There are lots of videos of people that have presented at ACCU. Even if the video isn't one that happened at an ACCU meeting we should have links to them.

  Tweets: Look at cppnow.org to see a list of recent tweets about that organization. We should have the same kind of thing.

Any other ideas? What would be helpful, useful, or cool?

Let's keep the content fresh by utilizing a feed aggregator. Folks can check our site for updates to well-known blogs, events. +1 for the tweet stream idea.

BTW, I created a thread for website related discussion. It's on the left, under "All posts". Also, we might post links to the meetups in the "Events" thread. I wonder if that can be done automatically.

Ali sent this in his monthly ACCU EMail -- http://llvm.org/devmtg/2012-11/. It's a link to the abstracts of the 2012 LLVM dev meeting, including slides and videos from the presentations.

I'm off to the LLVM Social at the Tied House in Mountain View. Say hi, if you drop by.

I see Chris found it.

It is the first Thursday of every month.

About this community

The Association of C/++ Users' San Francisco Bay Area chapter is loosely affiliated with its UK-based parent organization. The Bay Area ACCU meets bi-monthly, once for a presentation and once as a workshop. Meetings are always open to the public and are free of charge.

Peter Kellner has just announced dates for this year's Silicon Valley Code Camp (http://www.siliconvalley-codecamp.com/). This year's Code Camp will be the weekend of October 5th and 6th.

Last year ACCU-Silicon Valley sponsored a C++ Track that was very well received and I'd like to put together another one this year.

If you are interested in presenting as part of this track, please let me know.

Please reply if you attended last year and/or are interested in attending this year. If you want to know more, please check out the website. If you have any other questions please reply here.

Thanks.

These are directions to the workshop meetup:

Axcient is at the terminus of San Antonio road, on the eastern side of 101. If you're taking 101, take the "San Antonio Rd North" exit. After you cross 101, go through the two stoplights. Axcient will be on your right.

If there's room, park in the lot closest to San Antonio. There is only one public door in the building; and it's on that side. There will be signs for ACCU on the doors.

There will be someone at the front door until about 7:30 to show you where the meeting is. If you have any problems, call the front-desk at 650.810.2601. See you there!

I've asked Ali to consider going to Tied House instead of Amici's after meetings. How do people feel about this change?

I just practiced by Exception-Safe Coding talk for Wednesday night. Tweaked a few slides. Added a few for some new points that should be made.

Starting to get nervous, but it is the good kind of nervous.
