In one of my books I read that it’s used “everywhere”. What does it mean? Is the washing machine written in c++? Or the microwave oven? The car radio? I’m really curious and want to find out more.
I did a quick Google search and found out that you’ve guessed it right! Everything that has a microcontroller in it can be programmed with for example c++, c# or java (higher-level languages). You can find microcontrollers in any electric device you can think of. I find this very interesting!
The more you know
Yes, it is used in all embedded systems. In today’s world, with the advent of IoT and entrance of embedded devices in almost all devices, programming is required. C++ is specifically used in all of these.
C++ is also used in device drivers.
Also, Linux is fully based on C language, so you can literally do anything with C/C++.
