Bjarne Stroustup, father of the C++ programming language, sits down with David Silver, Head of the School of Autonomous Systems at Udacity, to celebrate 40 years of C++ and its past, present, and future applications.
Watch as they discuss:
• How C++ is being used in AI and machine learning for high performance programming
• How learning C++ provides engineers with an advantage
• Why C++ adoption will continue to grow
• The role C++ plays in digital transformation
C++ is one of the top five programming languages, and is becoming popular (again) due to its efficiency and flexibility of use, especially with AI and Machine Learning. That’s why Udacity created our newest Nanodegree program on C++, teaming up with Bjarne Stroustrup. View our webinar to learn more about the course and better understand how C++ is used in the world's most exciting engineering and programming jobs.
