Chuck Allison developed software for more than twenty years before becoming a professor of computer science at Utah Valley University. He is a technical editor for Better Software Magazine and founding and current editor of the online journal, The C++ Source. He the is author of two C++ books, including Thinking In C++, Volume 2 with Bruce Eckel.
Chuck Allison shares his thoughts on the newly released Google Go programming language, which is a lightweight, systems programming language designed with concurrency, scalability, and the web in mind.
Because C++ is not owned by a single company, it only gets updated every decade or so; therefore, it has been leap-frogged many times in terms of features by Java and C#. The latest version not only catches up with other modern languages but leaps ahead of them with a few killer virtues of its own.
