Bjarne didn't create C! C++, however.

I'm pretty sure I've seen this before. Of course, the poor guy basically gets asked the same stuff for most interviews, so it could be new. I had a hard time reading after I hit "COBALT". :P

I'm going to guess that COBALT is either a transcription error (combined with an ignorant editor) or an ignorant interviewer.

Yup, I think it should have been COBOL as he references its usage to business(although I have worked in a language called CORAL!!!).

Thanks, that was a facinating watch. If you click through the related videos there's a fair few others by Bjarne too.
