This is a multi-channel Slack workspace environment which gathers users of C++ from around the world into the same place so we can all learn from each other. It is like IRC but with modern clients that support multimedia, notifications, and smart devices.
Choose one of the following to get started:
Slack is invite based. Your e-mail address is used to register you in the workspace. The invitation tool does not store your address.
This workspace is paid for and operated in the public interest by The C++ Alliance in accordance with the mission to promote the general welfare of the C++ programming language.
Please remain professional in public channels. People from differing cultures and locales all meet here to discuss C++ topics. We ask that you follow the Acceptable Use Policy.
Due to the sheer size of the community, it is not practical for admins to police every channel all the time. When you see a user acting poorly, consider letting them know in a nice way. Give a benefit of the doubt generously, as spirited debate is sometimes mistaken for bad behavior.
If diplomacy fails and disruptions persist, mentioning @mods in the channel will get the attention of the moderators. Or, you can contact an admin(list)privately and explain the nature of the problem.
"First, do no harm."
Unlawful statements (including but not limited to credible threats, doxxing, cyber-bullying, stalking, or harassment) are prohibited in all channels.
Please treat all public channels as Safe For Work (SFW). Don't say anything you wouldn't want a co-worker to see if they pass by your desk.
In every public channel but especially the #learn channel which is the most heavily joined, please refrain from off-topic discussion. In public channels, avoid these topics altogether: politics, religion, race, gender, sex.
A link to your project or news item is of course welcome in the #plug_worthy channel. However keep in mind that this community is not intended to be an advertising platform.
Job offers are welcomed in the #jobs channel, but please include the location, the company, a link to details and keep it in the relevant room.
