Welcome to Gold sponsor, tipi.build

8th June 2023 at 13:27

We'd like welcome a new dev tools sponsor, tipi.build, who are supporting us as Gold sponsors this year. tipi.build are a fairly new company working on an ambitious concept for C++: improving and speeding up our builds - and all with minimal, if any, configuration!

Make sure you see them at the conference for the full scoop - but in the meantime, let's hear what they have to say:

tipi.build is here to transform your C++ development experience. Discover blazing fast remote CMake builds and caching. Built by C++ developers for C++ developers, Tipi simplifies the entire process, empowering you to focus on what you love – coding. Join our community of developers who have reclaimed their time, accelerated their workflows, and enjoy C++ every day.

tipi.build goes to C++ on Sea to connect with the C++ community, talk about builds and tooling in C++.

C++ on Sea is hosted at the Leas Cliff Hall in Folkestone in Kent, UK, overlooking the English Channel. This historic seaside town is also home to the channel tunnel and, as such, has excellent links to the rest of europe. It's also very accessible from London with the UK's (currently) only high speed link, the HS1. For more comprehensive travel information, see the page, Getting to C++ on Sea

The Leas Cliff Hall is a working theater that also has a dedicated conference suite. Built into the cliffs, and with floor-to-ceiling glass overlooking the sea on three sides, the views are spectacular!

The venue is about a 15 minute walk from Folkestone Central station, or ten minutes walk to the bustling town centre. As well as the modern town the old quarter, home to art galleries, curio shops and bohemian cafes and restaurants, extends down to the picturesque harbour.

Although the venue is split across three floors, connected via staircases, it is also fully accessible via elevator.
