  1. I’ve been programming on C++ for over 5 years now, started with C, god bless those days and forgive my sins… So, just recently I started teaching students C++. Now I started to understand how overcomplicated C++ is, there are so many things to learn about. It’s both terrifying and oddly satisfying for me to realize how much time does it take to really know C++.

  4. C++ is easy when you work with the language 8 hours/day for least 2 years. You have 4 years experience people who interview you know less about C++ than you do. The language is actually very slow moving compared to other languages.
