JAVA BYTES

OK, maybe not, but there are certainly alternatives.  Far and away the
most popular programming language in the world today is C++.  Unlike many
modern inventions, C++ has one clear creator: Bjarne Stroustrup.

On April 26th, he's coming to speak at Columbia, thanks to Columbia's ACM
chapter with the support of the Department of Computer Science.  This is a
rare chance to hear one of the major figures in both computer science and
the information economy speak about his creation.

The topic will be C++ itself, and thus should be of particular interest to
dedicated Java types, as C++ is the primary programming language of the
"real world."  Used a Microsoft product lately, either operating system or
application? Written in C++.  Played a computer game?  Used any retail
software whatsoever?  Ditto.  Tens of billions of dollars worth of
software written in C++ are sold every year.

So anyway, come and listen to the guy who wrote the world's main
programming language talk about programming.  The talk will be aimed at
intermediate-level computer science undergraduates.  We promise that your
mind will be stretched.

Please go to our site: http://www.cs.columbia.edu/acm for directions to
the lecture hall at Columbia U. where the talk will be taking place.
Columbia U. itself is located at 116th and Broadway.
