Introduction and History of C++

The high-level programming language C++ was created by computer scientist Bjarne Stroustrup in the early 1980s. C++ is one of the numerous programming languages still highly used today. This language was initially referred to as “C with Classes,” — deriving from the original C language created by Dennis Ritchie. Both C and C++ share several similarities, including basic syntax and code structure. These two programming languages essentially share the same language foundation.
