ACCU Conference 2018

Friday 27th April, 2018


We had an absolute blast at this year's ACCU Conference and if you were there we imagine you did too.

For us the highlight had to be the launch of #include <C++>, a new global, inclusive, and diverse community for developers interested in C++.

This is an initiative that has been brewing for a while, and one we are very happy to be a part of. Above all else #include <C++> is designed to be a safe place for developers irrespective of their background, ethnicity, gender identity or sexuality. The group runs a Discord server which is moderated to ensure that it remains a safe space and which you are welcome to join.

On the technical front, one unexpected highlight of the conference was Benjamin Missel's wonderful short talk on writing a C compiler for a BBC Micro, during which he demonstrated SSHing into a BBC Model B through the serial port!



Most conference sessions were recorded so even if you weren't there you can still watch them.

See you at ACCU 2019!
