I love C++. There’s no other way to say it. C++ permeates the world of software. C++ technology permeates our lives. C++ is one of the most amazing inventions of all time, and yet the vast majority of the world doesn’t even know about it. That’s a shame.
Bjarne Stroustrup, the inventor of C++, is still a very active participant in the C++ community and standardization process. I recently read one of his latest papers where he examines how C++ has evolved over the past 15 years. He debunks a lot of myths and provides a surprisingly objective viewpoint of where C++ has succeeded and where it has failed. A fun one-evening read.
