O'Reilly Open Source Convention


Open Source C++ Libraries
Ray Lischner, Tempest Software

Track: Emerging Topics
Date: Wednesday, July 09
Time: 2:30pm - 3:15pm
Location: Salon H

C++ has a decent standard library, but one with notable omissions and limitations. Numerous C++ libraries fill the gaps and extend the standard library. Many of the best libraries are open source. This session covers the most popular libraries, including Boost, Loki, ACE, Blitz++, MTL, and Spirit (as time allows). These libraries include high-performance numerics, template metaprogramming, concurrency, parsing, general utilities, and more.

Session attendees will leave with an understanding of the kinds of problems each library is meant to solve, how to download and install the libraries, and how to make the best use of open source libraries in C++ development.
