Hey @lefticus, I am ThePhD, and I heard from a colleague of mine that you liked sol2. I'm really glad you do, and since I was writing a paper for school, I wanted to mention your praise in that paper!

@ThePhD for ease of use and performance it's really quite good. I'd say it's the second best scripting option for C++ ;) so I take it your colleague was at C++Now this past week?

@lefticus I'll take second-best anyday! And, yes he was. Unfortunately I haven't been able to attend a single C++ event in my life yet. I'm really hoping that changes in the next 2 years, but... we'll see.
School is the sadface.

@ThePhD You should submit a talk to CppCon in Sept about the implementation of sol2. It's the kind of thing that's likely to get accepted http://cppcon.org/ then you could get into the conf for free. (unless it's just your schedule preventing you from going - I cannot help that). CppCon often has availability for 'open sessions' that anyone can submit / attend. It could be cool to have a general 'people who are interested in scripting with c++ discussion' open session if enough people were interested

@lefticus Sure! I'll go send them an e-mail and see if they'd be interested.

@ThePhD Here's the official page: http://cppform.cierecloud.com/sessions/submitter/?conf=cppcon&year=2016 the talks get reviewed by a committee, and they give you good feedback whether or not it's been accepted, but it will be a while before the official results are in.

I submitted an entry, @lefticus ! Hopefully it'll get accepted. Also, I have a (very rough!) draft of the paper I've written here. It doesn't discuss the implementation so much as it serves as a comparison and analysis of Sol's design compared to many other libraries. I think the nitty-gritty of the implementation would probably be better as a presentation.
