Beman Dawes

- Beman Dawes was a software developer from Virginia in the United States and the founder of and BoostCon (now known as C++Now).

He was the author of the StreetQuick® geographic atlas library used by digital map publishers to help people get really, really, lost.

He wrote his first computer program 50 years ago, and did not mourn the passing of bi-quinary arithmetic.

Beman was a voting member of the ISO C++ Standards Committee for twenty eight years, and chaired the Library Working Group for five years.

He enjoyed travel, sailing, hiking, and biking.

Beman passed away on December first, 2020 and was survived by his wife Sonda.
