15:00-17:00 | Helsingforsgade 12, 8200 Aarhus N, Nygaardbygningen, Peter Bøgh Andersen Auditoriet Distinguished talk by Bjarne Stroustrup: What C++ is and what it will become What is the essence of C++? That is, what principles and aims have been constant throughout the evolution of C++? The answer helps guide our day-to-day use today and guides the further development of C++.
I will emphasize direct access to hardware, zero-overhead abstraction, and the need for stability and portability. I will show examples using key facilities from C++11, C++14, and C++17. Finally, I’ll mention features that are scheduled post-17 but are already shipping, such as concepts and modules.
