We're pleased to announce the C++ Grandmaster Certification,
a free online course in which you build your own C++ compiler.

========================= CUT HERE =========================

1st Feb 2013 - San Francisco, CA - It was announced today by
the newly formed CPPGM Foundation (www.cppgm.org) that the
C++ Grandmaster Certification is now open for enrollment.

The C++ Grandmaster Certification is a massively open free
online course (MOOC) for expert C++ programmers. It
provides the most rigorous C++-specific qualification

Participants in the course will demonstrate their
comprehensive knowledge of C++ by writing their own fully
functional ISO C++11 standard compliant C++ compiler, C++
standard library and toolchain - including a preprocessor,
assembler, and linker - targeting the Linux operating
system and x86-64 architecture.

The toolchain will be written entirely in standard C++. No
third-party tools or libraries will be used.

As a grand finale the participant will build their
toolchain with itself (a self-hosting build) and pass the
conformance test with it.

Enrollments are open now and close 15th Feb, 2013. The
course will commence shortly after in the spring. For more
details and to enroll visit the course web site at:

The CPPGM Foundation was formed by a software company that
recognized the value to programmer productivity that a good
knowledge of language mechanics had to new developers to
their team. The C++ Grandmaster Certification began
development as an internal training program, and the
foundation was founded to offer it publicly.
