Talks

3D metal printing using modern C++

Cathy French

Over 30 years since its inception, C++ is still the programming language of choice for applications needing high efficiency and control.

Fortunately, new language features and libraries added in the C++11 standard and beyond have made C++ much easier to learn and use, and less error-prone, than it used to be.

In this talk I will introduce one such application, Additive Manufacturing (3D metal printing) and its computational challenges, and describe how some of the new (and existing) features of modern C++ can help overcome them.

Inspiring the next generation through Code Club

Tim Wilson

Code Club is a key educational programme for the Raspberry Pi Foundation, working to help young people learn how to build their ideas with code.

Meet Tim Wilson, Midlands Coordinator for Code Club and find out about how Code Clubs have been inspiring children across Staffordshire to learn to code, no matter who they are or where they come from.

Find out about the resources that children use, hear from Code Club volunteers about their experiences of getting involved and what you need to do to get involved as well.
