A life time member of the ACCU (Association of C and C++ Users), the organisation which he chaired for the most of the 1990s, and a member of the BSI panel for standardising C and C++, he is feared and revered in the computing publishing industry for his honesty and expertise.
The Guinea Pig
"When Francis asked me to be a C++ student I thought he was rather insane. I am scared of computers and useless at maths. However, I am sure that if I can learn to program with Francis’ help then anyone c an, so perhaps I am a good choice after all".
