About

Hi. My name is Eric Niebler, and I love C++. Currently, I work at Facebook. I have also spent many years as a freelance software developer, consultant, trainer and author. My specialty is C++ library and application development, with special emphasis on modern C++ techniques and the functional programming style.

I have written code for Facebook, Microsoft Research, Microsoft Visual C++, and Boost.org, where I have authored 4 Boost libraries: Proto, Foreach, Xpressive, and Accumulators. I’m also a release manager for Boost, and a former member of the Boost Steering Committee.

I have been published in journals such as isocpp.org, The C/C++ Users’ Journal, InformIT, MSDN Magazine, The C++ Source and C++Next. I’m a member of the ISO C++ Standardization Committee and a contributing editor for isocpp.org. I’m the principal author of the Ranges Technical Specification.

I have spoken at SD West, Dev Connections, BoostCon/C++Now, OOPSLA Library-Centric Software Design, and the Northwest C++ Users’ Group (NWCPP), and been a featured speaker at C++Now, C++Con, and C++ Russia. I was a board member for NWCPP for several years. I co-headlined The Astoria Seminar with C++ luminaries Scott Meyers, Andrei Alexandrescu, Walter Bright, and Dave Abrahams, and I keynoted Meeting C++ in 2013.
