I just had lunch with Bjarne Stroustrup

Well… me and another 250 persons or so.
For those not in the know, Bjarne Stroustrup designed and implemented the C++ language.
He is visiting National Instruments today and gave a conference. Very interesting, touching on everything from the goals and future direction of C++ and standarization processes to his opinion on Java and C#. The Q&A session was very interesting (although cut short) as it was more specific to the uses we internally have for the language.

All in all a very interesting talk.
