Two Exceptional Conversations On C++

This post has already been published on code::gallery blog which now has been merged into this blog.

I had come across two exceptional conversations on C++ between two visionaries – Bill Venners and Bjarne Stroustrup. They are dated 2003, but are very much valid even today.

Titled as The C++ Style Sweet Spot and Modern C++ Style, the discussions answer some principle questions about moving from C to C++, using inhertiance the right way, using abstract classes for interface and considering the invariant for designing simple classes. If you haven’t read them yet, jump right ahead and consume them, they provide lot of food for thought and can act as design guidelines.

Unique thing about reading the discussions was that Stroustrup has not given just point answers, but has explained the reasons behind the thoughts. I am sure such reading can lead to best practices.
