We love C++ and use it daily. In this talk we try to explain why – despite its reputation for complexity – C++ is conceptually a much better language than Java. At least "better" in the sense that it allows the programmer to express her thoughts more clearly than would be possible in Java: C++ lets us programmers write abstractions without losing performance and C++ gives us a uniform resource handling mechanisms for all kinds of resources, not just memory.
