Bjarne Stroustrup: “I Did It For You All…”

On the 1st of January, 1998, Bjarne Stroustrup gave an interview to the IEEE’s ‘Computer’ magazine..

Naturally, the editors thought he would be giving a retrospective view of seven years of object-oriented design, using the language he created.

By the end of the interview, the interviewer got more than he had bargained for and, subsequently, the editor decided to suppress its contents, ‘for the good of the industry’ but, as with many of these things, there was a leak..

Here is a complete transcript of what was was said, unedited, and unrehearsed, so it isn’t as neat as planned interviews..

You will find it interesting….
