The Continuing Evolution of C++ – part one:
Aims and principles

21. Januar 2021, 16 Uhr (online)

The development of C++ started in 1979. Since then, it has grown to be one of the most widely used programming languages ever, with an emphasis on demanding industrial uses. It was released commercially in 1985 and evolved through one informal standard ("the ARM") and several ISO standards: C++98, C++11, C++14, C++17, and C++20. How could an underfinanced language without a corporate owner succeed like that? What are the key ideas and design principles? How did the original ideas survive almost 40 years of development and 30 years of attention from a 300+ member standards committee?
