History of C++

C++ was developed by Bjarne Stroustrup at AT & T Bell Laboratory during 1979. C++ is originally derived from C language and influenced by many languages like Simula, BCPL, Ada, ML, CLU and ALGOL 68. Till 1983, it was referred “New C” and “C with Classes”. In 1983, the name was changed as C++ by Rick Mascitti.

C++ is standardized by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The latest standard version published in December 2017 as ISO/IEC 14882:2017 which is informally known as C++17. The first standardized version was published in 1998 as ISO/IEC 14882:1998 which was then enhanced by the C++03 (ISO/IEC 14882:2003), C++11 (ISO/IEC 14882:2011) and C++14 (ISO/ IEC 14882:2014). The Next standard version will be C++20 in 2020.
