#33 A SHORT HISTORY OF C++
C++ was developed by Bjarne Stroustrup in 1979 it was designed to be an object-oriented language. C++ implements features such as inheritance, abstraction, polymorphism and encapsulation.
C++ is an intermediate-level programming language. It allows high-level and low-level programming. Although there’s a whole bunch of newer languages, C++ is still relevant where accurate control of application’s resource consumption and performance is needed. Before 1998 C++ was being accepted and adopted on so many different platforms that many interoperability problems and porting issues surfaced. Therefore in 1998 the first standard version of C++ was ratified by the ISO Committee in ISO/IEC 14882:1998
