The creator of the C++ programming language claims there has been a backlash against some of the newer programming languages such as Java and C#, with developers moving back to using C++.
Bjarne Stroustrup, who currently works as a professor at Texas A&M University and is creator of the C++ programming language, said Wednesday in an interview here at the ACCU Conference it is a misperception that C++ is being overtaken by newer languages such as Java and C#.
"C++ is bigger than ever," Stroustrup said. "There are more than 3 million C++ programmers. Everywhere I look there has been an uprising--more and more projects are using C++. A lot of teaching was going to Java, but more are teaching C++ again. There has been a backlash."
