C++Now 2014: Student/Volunteer Program Accepting Applications
C++Now, presented by Boost in-cooperation with the ACM, is an international
gathering of C++ programmers. In 2013, the conference launched a Student/Volunteer
Program to enable young coders to attend the conference. This year, we are again
are inviting students with an interest in C++ programming to attend the May
12-17, 2014 conference in Aspen, CO as Student/Volunteers.
The program is an excellent way for students with any interest in C++ to learn
about C++ and make lasting connections with the C++ community.
"Attending has truly been one of the most inspirational moments of my life. I
had the opportunity to learn, socialize and have a great time in general. I
hope to attend this conference yearly now and make a lasting impact in the
computer science community." - Grant Mercer, 2013 C++Now Student/Volunteer.
"All of the attendees had knowledge to share. Although the talks can be seen
online, nothing can compare to being surrounded by over a hundred C++
enthusiasts." - Alex Duchene, 2013 C++Now Student/Volunteer
Student/Volunteers will receive free registration. A limited number of
applicants will receive stipends for travel expenses.
Volunteers will handle various tasks during the conference, such as assisting
presenters, setting up presentation rooms, running A/V equipment and helping
with the conference picnic.
Students from all fields of study are welcome to apply. However, this
conference covers advanced C++ topics, and applicants should have ample
experience with the C++ programming language and be familiar with general
computer science topics.
Applications will be accepted until February 15th, 2014.
Application decisions will be sent out by March 18th, 2014.
