We've been talking about programming languages we learn in college today and most of the students agreed that C\C++ are obsolete. I couldn't convince them that they are not because i don't have enough knowledge on this topic , but i know that C\C++ wouldn't hang out that long if they were obsolete.
Here are some of the lines from the discussion we had. please let me see your comments on them if you know enough about this matter :
- We should not learn C\C++ , we only study how to make console program and no company would want a console program to work on these days.
- they say C++ is powerfull and can make a GUI program with some work, Why wasting time when languages like VB can do the same programs with less effort?
- Yea C\C++ can be use used to make operating systems... but when we talk about software then people rather use an easier language that does the same work without consuming much time.
i myself almost got convinced with those lines. I wouldn't quit learning C\C++ no matter what. I just wanna know if they're true or not.
So what do you guys think?
