An appetizer while the CppCon videos are being processed, we are pleased to link to this interview on Channel 9:
by Charles Torre
What happens when you put three titans of programming language design and computing in a room and turn a camera on to capture what takes place?
That's the thought experiment that led to this conversation with C++ language creator Bjarne Stroustrup, Self language creator Dave Ungar, and actor model creator Carl Hewitt. Thank goodness all three of them were present at Lang.NEXT 2014. Many topics are covered, as you can imagine. It's best that you find some quality time to watch, listen, and learn from some true masters. This is a long conversation and there is great programming history herein!
This is a rare (and very candid) gathering of some of the best minds in the programming world today.
Huge thanks to Bjarne, Carl, and Dave for spending over an hour to make conversation in real time. The topics naturally evolved out of the random and it was an honor to be in the room with such wonderful people who've had such a huge impact on programming.
Tune in. Enjoy.
