    Work groups of cboard posters?

    I saw a poll about this from a year ago, and was wondering if the demographics of this site have changed much since then, because of the whole Java switch and whatnot...

    I think hes referring to the changing of the AP exam, but even then i dont see how that is relevant to our career's.

    The reason he was referring to it is because it could change the populus of this board, as many high school students and also even many college students will begin visiting Java boards instead of C++ boards.

    Just because newer students are being taught java doesnt mean that a fair majority of them wont hear of C++ and how kickass it is, and make them want to learn it.

    Which is where we come in. I dont think the small ripple the AP conversion is creating will slam to hard on our shores.

    Also keep in mind that this board is international and I have never heard of anything like AP exams outside of the US

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    I don't think the site's overall traffic has been much affected by the switch.

    well, i didn't think so that much, might be too early, but everyone's right about their opinions. Main reason I'm asking is because at least at my school, NO ONE is really interested in C++ anymore, just Java, even the people that I tell about C++, and I was wondering if this was something that was happening elsewhere also.


    I understand that a lot of people who visit this site right now are self-taught C/C++ people, but you have to take in to account that there's quite a few people here who post questions about their classes, too, which there are now much fewer of (in high school at least)

    And also, this is still the "transition year" for the C++ to Java switch, so who knows what might happen in the future. One thing that I do know, however, is that most of the people here who post quite a bit and seem to be the most knowledgeable are people who are mainly just interested in C++ on their own, and not for classroom purposes.

    I noticed, on the contrary, many newcomers to C++ forum recently. My school is still loyal to C++. It's one of the schools in California State University system. Can I say all CSU's still do C++? (I don't know)
