Bjarne Stroustrup for Wired

Last month I drove up to Aggie country to photograph a legend in computer programming.  Bjarne Stroustrup invented C++ in 1985.  On the silver anniversary of its launch, Wired looked back at one of the most popular programming languages ever created.

Professor Stroustrup (fun lesson in pronunciation here) was generous with his time between classes at Texas A&M University.  We talked about his native Denmark, where my brother currently lives, and shared some programming-grade espresso. Thankfully there was no pop-quiz about programming.
