Created by Peter Sommerlad March 6, 2014
From the presentation:
Why is C++ in again?
• more computing per Watt!
• mobile - battery powered
• servers - cloud computing
• high-performance computing & GPUs
• better abstractions than C
• without performance price (e.g. of a VM)
• embedded (higher-level type safety)
• security (buffer overruns, pointers)
