Letter for students

There is a moment in life where you have to ask yourself: Am I a real developer because I’m not mastering C++? Of course, this is a wrong question. Being a great developer is language agnostic. The mindset and experience is what will make the most important difference. But there is some sort of truth behind this question. C++ is at the origins of many low level layers of applications we’re using today with high level development languages like Java, Python, PHP or C#.

While C++ is just more difficult to start with, it makes more sense to use it when you get near the operating system programming, like implementing a system driver, reusable libraries or low-power consumption devices and or IoT client applications. Basically, you use C++ mostly where other languages fail or don’t exist.

C++ is a pretty old language, appeared in 1985, compared to its successors Python in 1991, Java and JavaScript in 1995 or C# in 2002. Nevertheless, new version is at the horizon C++20!

We’ve also observed an increase in C++ popularity with origins in IoT and Machine Learning. Today, C++ is ranked 4th in TIOBE and 9th on StackOverflow.

About C++

C++ () is a general-purpose programming language created by Bjarne Stroustrup as an extension of the C programming language, or "C with Classes". The language has expanded significantly over time, and modern C++ has object-oriented, generic, and functional features in addition to facilities for low-level memory manipulation. It is almost always implemented as a compiled language, and many vendors provide C++ compilers, including the Free Software Foundation, LLVM, Microsoft, Intel, and IBM, so it is available on many platforms.C++ was designed with a bias toward system programming and embedded, resource-constrained software and large systems, with performance, efficiency and flexibility of use as its design highlights. C++ has also been found useful in many other contexts, with key strengths being software infrastructure and resource-constrained applications, including desktop applications, servers (e.g. - read more on Wikipedia
