We proudly present Herb Sutter's opening presentation at C++ and Beyond 2011. Thanks to Herb, Scott, and Andrei for allowing C9 to film this and air it
Here, Herb Sutter answers the question "Why C++?" in his usual thoughtful and well-articulated manner. He shares his perspectives on C++11 (yes, the name of the next version of C++ is officially official now!) and the C++ Renaissance as well as why C++ still matters and will continue to matter far into the future. This is a great introduction to the current state of the language, including a glimpse into the future of general purpose, performance-intensive, power-friendly, powerful native programming. As Herb says, C++ has legs and will continue to enable us to run fast into the future.
Tune in. Go native!
