- The inventor of C++
- I like my code to be elegant and effcient. The logic should be straightforward to make it hard for bugs to hide, the dependencies minimal to ease maintenance, error handling complete according to an articulated strategy, and performance close to optimal so as not to tempt people to make the code messy with unprincipled optimizations. Clean code does one thing well.
- There are only two kinds of languages: the ones people complain about and the ones nobody uses.
