This is the Opening Keynote for the Back to Basics Track.

You probably write in C++ not because it is the simplest available language. There are other attributes C++ brings: efficiency, low footprint, direct memory access, enhanced control over runtime behavior, and more. In "The Design and Evolution of C++", Bjarne Stroustrup explains the design decisions taken since the language was conceived and during its evolution. What makes C++ powerful? How has C++ survived more than 4 decades, while other languages have disappeared into oblivion? Why do we still use C++ (and will we still be using it in a decade from now)? And most importantly, why it is not so complicated after all, and even becomes easier to use over time! Being both a teacher and a practitioner, seeing beginners struggle at first with the language but then turn to love it, my goal is to assure you that mastering C++ is doable, then motivate you to do so.
