NYC Talk

Daveed has a talk scheduled on January 2nd in New York City. The topic will be “C++ Template Instantiation -- Advanced Concepts.”

The talk is for the C++ and Java SIG (special interest group) of the NYPC users group. If all goes well, we'll start at 6:30pm on the 15th floor of the New Yorker Hotel (34th Street and 8th Avenue).

Part of the talk will be based on Chapter 10 of our new book, but we will probably also spend some significant time on new ideas wrt. exported templates.

The Inclusion vs. Separation debate is interesting, but I would like to point out that there is a third option -- the Instantiator idiom. With Instantiator, you can have separate compilation without export or hidden dependencies. It does not use explicit instantiation, so the multiple-definition problem is avoided, and maintenance is easier because new instantiations can be added without editing source code. Please see for a description and for some sample code.
