Why Programmers Are Increasingly Embracing C++
Decades old, C++ remains one of the most popular programming languages today with the Tiobe Index consistently ranking it among the top three languages based on usage. In 2015, C++ saw another increase in popularity due in part to the release of the C++ 11 specifications and a subsequent update to C++ 14. In this presentation, Peter Thorsteinson will show why C++ is experiencing this growth, examine new features impacting adoption, and alleviate fears that C++ is too difficult to learn or too complex to be an effective development language. After demonstrating how C++ has evolved, he will teach you how to leverage its power without all the normal overhead associated with a high-level language.
