Bjarne Stroustrup

Bjarne Stroustrup (born 1950 in Aarhus, Denmark) is a computer scientist and head of AT&T Lab's Large-scale Programming Research department.

Stroustrup, in his own words, "invented C++, wrote its early definitions, and produced its first implementation... chose and formulated the design criteria for C++, designed all its major facilities, and was responsible for the processing of extension proposals in the C++ standards committee." Stroustrup also wrote what many consider to be the standard introductory text to the language, "The C++ Programming Language", which is now in its third edition. The text has been revised twice to reflect the evolution of the language and the work of the C++ standards committee.

Bjarne Stroustrup is Cand.Scient. in Mathematics and Computer Science (1975) from the University of Aarhus[?], Denmark, and Ph.D. in Computer Science (1979) from Cambridge University, England.
