C++ and Beyond 2011: Benedict Gaster on C++11, C++ AMP, C++ Renaissance
While attending C++ and Beyond 2011, I was able to convince a few fellow attendees to get in front of the camera and talk about C++, how they use the language, and what they think of C++11 and C++ and Beyond.
Here, we meet Benedict Gaster, a software architect designing programming models for heterogeneous computing and well-known for his contributions to OpenCL. Needless to say, Ben is an advanced C/C++ user. He shares his perspectives on new C++11 features (like auto (type deduction), lambdas, variadic templates, template aliasing), C++ AMP, and the C++ Renaissance.
Thank you, Ben, for taking time to chat. Keep pushing the envelope.
