C++ is one of the most popular programming languages and is implemented on a wide variety of hardware and operating system platforms. As an efficient compiler to native code, its application domains include systems software, application software, device drivers, embedded software, high-performance server and client applications, and entertainment software such as video games. - Wikipedia

Overview of the language: www.stroustrup.com/crc.pdf.

It's being used quite a lot in the above mentioned areas. C++ dominates the games industry, it's a popular choice for all kinds of systems devolpment, and is being used in situations where code actually costs more to run than developer time (think lots and lots of servers).

Yes, it's a very active language with a big future.

Take a look for yourself, type C++ in the search bar and see the number of job postings.

You will see that C/C++ are some of the top dogs and they're not going anywhere.

One thing you need to understand here is that no matter what you learn in your life, that will come in handy at one point of your life.

Have you listened to Steve Jobs and his talk on 'Connecting The Dots'?

If not, take The time and read This link and The part where he mentions about how calligraphy benefited him.

So, what I would like to say here is whatever you learn, learn it with full interest and enjoyment and not as something for The heck of learning, and you will notice that that something you have learned will definitely help you in some stage of your life.

regards,
Raghav

And we designed it all into the Mac. It was the first computer with beautiful typography. If I had never dropped in on that single course in college, the Mac would have never had multiple typefaces or proportionally spaced fonts. And since Windows just copied the Mac, it's likely that no personal computer would have them.


Nice story, but unfortunately not exactly true. TeX and troff were already in wide use when the Mac was issued, and it's not likely anyone using computers seriously at that time would have tolerated a machine without the features they'd come to expect. And the Dandelions that I played with at Xerox in the early 80s (the family of machines that the Mac was based on) did have multiple typefaces and a pretty full wysiwyg editor - I can't speak for the presence of proportionally spaced fonts, but I believe they were there as well.

So this, like the rest of the mouse-driven interface, was not an idea that Jobs or his team can take responsibility for.

The message of the story is good, it's a shame that he couldn't make a true story out of it.
