Standard C++ Foundation

Filed under: Events,News by alex at 06:47

It’s official! C++ now has it’s own “Marketing Department” and a reliable place to go learn about the language, where is it going and what’s happening around it.

According to isoccp.org About page, goals are:

    1) To promote dissemination of correct and up-to-date information about modern C++.

    2) To promote greater availability of high-quality C++ libraries, including both standard libraries (by reducing barriers to submitting and adopting libraries in Standard C++ itself) and community libraries (by having an organized, and ideally tool-supported, way for C++ developers to discover and use libraries).

To stay in tune with your favorite language, make sure to bookmark the above web site and visit often.
