Bjarne Stroustrup, celebrated inventor of the C++ language, in Montreal

A free conference presented October 7 by Morgan Stanley and TechnoMontréal.
MorganStanley has announced that Bjarne Stroustrup, Managing Director of Morgan Stanley’s technology division and creator of C++ will give a technical conference entitled “The Essence of C++” in Montreal on October 7.
This free event, presented in collaboration with TechnoMontréal, will be held at Place des Arts at 2:30 pm. Only 1,000 tickets are available and can be booked through the Place des Arts box office.
The conference, presented in English, will be of particular interest to software developers. Building on the distinctive foundations of C ++, Stroustrup will examine how new and existing features support (or distract from) programming, and how they promote an innovative style of design that is more efficient. Developers from Morgan Stanley’s Technology & Engineering Centre in Montreal will be present to answer questions after the conference.
Bjarne Stroustrup is the designer and original implementer of C++ as well as the author of “The C++ Programming Language” (Fourth Edition) and “A Tour of C++” (both Addison-Wesley, 2013), “Programming: Principles and Practice using C++” (Addison-Wesley, 2014), and many popular and academic publications. Dr. Stroustrup is a Managing Director in the Technology division of Morgan Stanley in New York City as well as a visiting professor at Columbia University and a Research distinguished professor at Texas A&M University. He is a member of the US National Academy of Engineering, and IEEE Fellow and an ACM fellow. His research interests include distributed systems, design, programming techniques, software development tools, and programming languages.  He is actively involved in the ISO standardization of C++.
