Yesterday I came back from my first ever ACCU conference, ACCU 2017, which happened from April 26 to April 29 in Bristol (UK). The experience was simply fantastic - I wholeheartedly recommend attending the conference!
I reinforced my knowledge on many topics and learned new ideas by attending the high-quality talks and keynotes. The schedule was very well chosen and most of the time I found it very hard to choose which talk to see in a slot - that's a good sign about the quality of the content. Fortunately, all the talks have been professionally recorded and will be available for free on ACCU's official YouTube channel.
The "social aspect" of the conference was also very important to me. I had a chance to discuss my favorite language over a beer with very smart people that I consider friends, despite the fact we see each other only one or two times per year. I also finally met some active cpplang.slack.com users face to face and made new interesting acquaintances.
