C++: An Invisible Foundation

C++ is one of the key foundations of our software. It is invisible to most people because they use it only indirectly. It's in your computer and your phone. It's in the machines that manufacture, your computer, and your phone. It's in most cars, including all the self-driving ones. It's on Mars, and in deep sea-robots. It's what runs your Java virtual machine and your Python AI/ML scripts.
