Is C++ useful?

What is C++ for? :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Hello @theprogrammer150, welcome to the forums! C++ is a general purpose language. It is object-oriented, and statically typed, meaning you must declare what type a variable is, before you/when you assign it.
Here are a few articles about C++:

  1. Geeks for Geeks
  2. educaba
  3. The C++ docs

I hope this helps!


Every language has a purpose for which it was created. But with years of development it can do much more than it was made for. Likewise, C++ was initially built for use in desktop applications mostly. Now C++ is used in making games, writings scripts for hacking, AI, etc.

I think all languages are useful in some way, but i know that C++ can be VERY useful.


I believe C++ is still useful specially in Embedded systems. I have some friends who are working in this field only with C++ and they have good salary and even visa sponsorship.


Yes, you are right there.

As an electrical engeneering student. I use C and C++ for programming embedded systems because those systems have limited ressources: speed of operation and memory


That is true, and also, welcome back to the forums. :slight_smile:
