- It is always nice to hold a presentation in Denmark and to talk to people about their technical issues. It is such conversations which helps me to improve C+++, says Bjarne Stroustrup and continues:
- C++ is a living language. The world is changing, and we are changing so we must change the language, so it can serve us better. My presentation in Herning will focus on how C++ can be improved without compromising the stability, and how the new facilities in C++20 can make it easier to programme solid and effective coding, which is easy to maintain.
