    About the project

    An international effort is underway to standardise and refine the C++ language, coordinated by the C++ Working Group of the International Organization for Standardization.

    Russian developers have a voice in the improvement of the standard through Working Group 21 (C++ language) Russia.

    WG21 C++ Russia was created on 28 March 2016, as part of a subcommittee on “Programming languages, their environments and system software interfaces” within Rosstandart Technical Committee 22 (GOST R).

    Goals and objectives

    WG21 C++ Russia serves as an expert body on standardisation of C++. Its goal is to collect, organise and prepare proposals on standardisation of the C++ language initiated by Russian developers, and advocate these proposals at general meetings of the C++ Working Group of the International Organization for Standardization.
    WG21 C++ Russia members manage incoming ideas for proposals; discuss, write and refine proposals for the standard; advise developers writing proposals independently; and give presentations at open meetings of WG21 C++ Russia and the C++ community.
