C++ in the developing world, why it matters

19:30 - 20:30 Thursday 29th February 2024 UTC

The talk is an exploration of the importance of C++ as a language for writing efficient code for older hardware which is easier to access in the developing world.

It will also look into the C++ language as a platform for education about software due to the large amount of "real world" software that has already been written in the language.

It will also touch on tooling and resources for programming on resource constrained systems.
