One of the most popular programming languages, C++ is a standard within backend development and is used in telecommunications, server infrastructure, games, GUI frameworks, operating systems, and web browsers.
Adobe's use of C++ is extensive: its desktop and mobile products are written almost entirely in C++, and Mac OS X uses large amounts of C++ inside some libraries too.
Sure, there may be newer languages out there (the Danish computer scientist Bjarne Stroustrup developed C++ nearly 40 years ago at Bell Labs as an enhancement to the C programming language) but C++ remains enduringly popular due to the fact it is extremely fast and efficient. Many tools and frameworks rely on its speed and efficiency, keeping it in high demand.
As a result, it’s a great language to learn or improve your skills in. Bonus: C++ is always popular with recruiters too. If you want to brush up your resumé for 2022, in addition to strong experience writing code using C/C++ and Unix, these are the key C++ skills to make sure to add:
