CodeRage 7 C++ conference, December 10-12, 2012
A reminder, the CodeRage 7 C++ conference starts next Monday, December 10, 2012 at 6am Pacific Standard Time (14:00 UTC). There are 3 days of C++ sessions including my special live, online conversation with Bjarne Stroustrup at 8am PST (16:00 UTC) on Monday. Some of the C++ sessions you won’t want to miss are included in my blog post on November 21 - http://blogs.embarcadero.com/davidi/2012/11/21/41993.
During the first 25 days of December leading up to Christmas, I will blog about the upcoming release of the C++Builder 64-bit compiler for Microsoft Windows and C++Builder XE3 support for building VCL and FireMonkey 2 applications (sorry these first two are late).
