A prominent C++ expert, he is also a book author and a columnist for Dr. Dobb's Journal. He joined Microsoft in 2002 as a platform evangelist for Visual C++ .NET, rising to lead software architect for C++/CLI. He served as secretary and convener of the ISO C++ standards committee for over 10 years. From 1997 to 2003, he regularly created C++ programming problems and posted them on the Usenet newsgroup comp.lang.c++.moderated, under the title Guru of the Week. The problems generally addressed common misconceptions or poorly understood concepts in C++. Sutter later published expanded versions of many of the problems in his first two books, Exceptional C++ and More Exceptional C++. Other books he has authored are, ?Exceptional C++ Style? and ?C++ Coding Standards? (together with Andrei Alexandrescu).
