Today I'm attempting an all-day tutorial: Better Software -- No Matter What. Speaking is Scott Meyers, author of the classic Effective C++ book series. Scott is always entertaining and never pulls his punches, so this should be a fun day.

Unfortunately for latecomers, Scott's talks are always well-attended, often to the point of standing room only crowds. The conference planners know this and so today's tutorial is in a Room Of Considerable Size, but still: come early or be prepared to stand for eight hours straight!
