Bruce Eckel (born July 8, 1957) is a computer programmer, author and consultant. His best known works are Thinking in Java and Thinking in C++, aimed at programmers wanting to learn the Java or C++ programming languages, particularly those with little experience of object-oriented programming. Eckel was a founding member of the ANSI/ISO C++ standard committee.[citation needed]

Views on computing[edit]

In 2011, Eckel wrote about the Go programming language, stating:[1]

The complexity of C++ (even more complexity has been added in the new C++), and the resulting impact on productivity, is no longer justified. All the hoops that the C++ programmer had to jump through in order to use a C-compatible language make no sense anymore — they're just a waste of time and effort. Now, Go makes much more sense for the class of problems that C++ was originally intended to solve.
