The POCO C++ Libraries (http://pocoproject.org) are modern, powerful, cross-platform C++ class libraries and frameworks for buildingnetwork- and internet-based applications. The libraries are open source, available under the Boost Software License. Started in 2004, the libraries have since become somewhat known in the C++ community, even being mentioned on various occassions by Bjarne Stroustrup and Herb Sutter.

I will give a brief overview of the libraries and show how to use them in C++ projects, covering a few typical usage scenarios (XML processing, HTTP client/server programming, SQL database access, etc.).

Günter is the founder and lead developer of the POCO C++ Libraries project. He has been writing C++ code for 20 years now, and his current professional main interests are building Linux-based embedded devices using C++ and POCO, as well as writing C++ libraries and tools. Günter is also the founder and managing director of Applied Informatics, a company providing commercial C++ toolkits based on POCO. He lives in Carinthia, Austria, with his wife and daughter. In his spare time he loves to go sailing.

Meetings are open to the public and are free of charge.
