Over the past ten years Belfast has become one of Europe’s hottest tech destinations with an ever growing community or innovators and technologists. This is also reflected by the wide and diverse group of international and home-grown companies that have made Belfast their home to capitalise on the broad range, diversity and depth of talent in the marketplace.
This Autumn Belfast is host to the C++ Autumn WG21 ISO standards meeting. A week long meeting which will see the biggest names in the C++ world and some of the biggest names in programming descend on Belfast to work on the upcoming C++20 international standard.
This will be one of the largest deep tech events that Belfast has seen with an exciting number of key thinkers and leaders in the programming field all together in one place, at one time, and so we have decided to capitalise on this to kickstart a new ACCU Autumn Conference to be held annually in Belfast.
This new conference will build on the popularity of the annual Spring ACCU conference with a more defined focus on "the evolution of programming" as a catch-all aspiration. This won’t be about any one technology or language but rather a celebration of the diversity and richness of the wider programming and development languages, communities and ecosystems.
