Herb Sutter has served as the convener (chair) of the ISO C++ committee for most of its lifetime, and has presided over the development of every ISO C++ specification except for C++ 98. He has also contributed technically to a number of C’s features by leading or participating in the design of the concurrency memory model, lambda functions, async, futures, enum class, nullptr, and other ISO C++ features.
Herb is also the coauthor and editor, with Bjarne Stroustrup, of The C++ Core Guidelines, available at github.com/isocpp/CppCoreGuidelines. He has also written over 200 articles and four other books about C++, including the best-selling Exceptional C++ series as well as C++ Coding Standards (with Andrei Alexandrescu). Herb has been tirelessly active in the C++ community since 1995, where he was one of the original moderators of comp.lang.c++.moderated, wrote the Guru of the Week series, served as a columnist for C++ Report (where he also served as editor), C++ Users Journal, and Dr. Dobb’s Journal. Most recently Herb led the creation of the Standard C++ Foundation where he serves as President and a director, designed and created the isocpp.org website, and created the CppCon conference (with Jon Kalb).
