Exciting News for C++ Enthusiasts: The Modern C++ Challenge by CoderGears!

Hey Coders!

We’re thrilled to announce an exciting opportunity for C++ developers – The Modern C++ Challenge, organized by CoderGears! This contest is all about embracing innovation and showcasing your skills in modern C++ development.

Objective: The goal is simple yet stimulating – modernize the Loki library using the newest C++ features. Loki, a C++ library crafted by Andrei Alexandrescu, is known for its extensive use of template metaprogramming and offers tools like typelist, functor, singleton, and more. Your mission is to revitalize Loki, not to replace existing libraries like Boost, but to help the community adopt the latest C++ standards.

Who Should Participate? Whether you’re a student, a beginner, or an intermediate C++ developer, this is a perfect chance to hone your skills, get creative with the new C++ features, and potentially win amazing prizes!

Prizes Up for Grabs:

  1. 1st Place: $500 + CppDepend Full Edition (Developer + DevOps features)
  2. 2nd Place: $300 + CppDepend Full Edition (Developer + DevOps features)
  3. 3rd Place: $200 + CppDepend Full Edition (Developer + DevOps features)
  4. 4th – 10th Places: CppDepend Full Edition (Developer + DevOps features)

How to Enter:

  1. Fork the Loki project.
  2. Modernize it using the new C++ features to the best of your ability.
  3. Submit the GitHub link of your forked project at support@cppdepend.com.

Resources: Get acquainted with the new C++ features here.

Deadline: Submissions are open until 1st July 2024.

This is more than just a contest; it’s a learning journey and a chance to contribute to a well-regarded C++ library. We can’t wait to see the innovative ways you integrate modern C++ features into Loki!

Stay tuned for updates, tips, and resources. Let the coding begin!
