This session will be held in the Gather Town Library in a Week room with Zoom as a Backup

In this year's Library in a Week we will turn our focus back to where this all started: Boost. The success, longevity, and number of libraries in Boost has created its own issue: maintenance. With std C++ now shipping every three years instead of every fifteen, it's tricky to keep everything current. The community maintenance team can always use additional hands and brains to solve both big and little issues.

In this session I'll outline what Library in a Week (LIAW) is all about, how we will attempt to work (all virtual is a new paradigm). LIAW is a workshop that continues for the length of the conference and is run by the participants. We typically have daily short presentations from people working on problems and coordination sessions during lunch and dinner. Since we're not in Aspen walking to lunch and dinner we'll be using GatherTown as the forum for this collaboration. In the 'Library' you'll find we have a dedicated room for making presentations and having discussions.
