Thread: Is C++ still the language of choice...

  1. #1

    Question Is C++ still the language of choice...

    Do professional software developers still do most of their development with the C++ language ?

    Am I wasting time learning C++ ?

    C++ is one of the most widely used if not the most widely used (I am not qualified to say) language in industry. This is NOT at all a waste of time (like learning basic).

    yeah... you're wasting your time.

    Go and learn COBOL


    PS. in case you're wondering.....i'm joking!!!

    Whatever is said in Latin sounds profound.

    I'm glad your just joking, I thought I saw somwhere on this site, that programming in COBOL is difficult. I have never seen COBOL source code, and I am not qualified to make a judgement...

    C++ is my favorite language, and I hope that it truly remains the #1 language among software developers

    Depends on the software and on the development. But I don't see it going anywhere soon. It may be made better (still remains to be seen where C# is going...), but much like C++ is just a glorified C... the essentials will probably always be there.....
