Last year, we were very lucky to have Charles Torre from Microsoft’s Channel 9 attend our C++ and Beyond conference and record the talks and discussion panels. I thought that since we have so many new followers and first-time attendees, it would be fun to share a few of the videos as they are great examples of what you can expect from attending C++ and Beyond (coming August 5 in Asheville, NC).

Stay tuned! Over the next week and a half, I’ll be posting videos from the archives…

In this first video, Herb Sutter answers the question “Why C++?” He shares his perspectives on C++11 and the C++ Renaissance as well as why C++ still matters and will continue to matter far into the future. It’s a keynote-y talk, not a technical talk, but we felt it was important to address an important trend involving the language.
