We are professionals and hobbyists working in Berlin who are interested in C++, the language, its uses and the things people build with it.
We are open for everybody who knows C++ or is interested in learning it or really anybody who wants to hear about the advantages (and fun!) of native programming.
Some of us are involved in the C++ standardization process, some have contributed to the boost libraries. Some of us work in medical imaging and applications, in scientific computing, some develop innovative and intuitive desktop applications, some are specialists in cross-platform development.
We meet about once a month. Anybody is invited to give a talk about a subject that has something to do with C++. Did you build something with C++ and want to share? Have you checked out the latest proposals from the standardization committee? Do you need help with a project of yours?

Hi everybody,

in our August meetup (19.8.2014, 19:00 in C-Base) we will have Max Neunhöffer from Cologne speaking about C++11 in arangodb. Before the talk we will have a barbecue. Think-Cell will sponsor meat and salads. Thank you Think-Cell!


ArangoDB is an open source, multi-model NoSQL database that is written in C++ and embeds Google's V8 engine to implement the higher levels of its functionality in JavaScript. Recently we decided to switch to C++11 for the database kernel.
In this talk I will first give a short overview of the software architecture of ArangoDB and proceed to tell you about our practical experiences with the switch to C++11. I will explain which of the parts of the "new" standard have been more important and which have been less useful, and I will report about the difficulties we encountered.
