Discussion on: First Contact with C++

C++ is a wonderful language. A lot of modern and useful features are getting added to the language over the years. All with backward compatibility to C. The language has so many modern features with high performance, it is hard to believe that it is a 40 year old language!
It is also not all rosy though. It does have complex and confusing syntax at places. But all in all a great language to work with.

It is always great to see some interest for C++ on

I feel that C++ went from a decent language to a great one with the introduction of C++11. This introduced some real game changers.

And I agree that C++ definitely has some quirks. Unfortunately it seems that the C++ committee is unwilling to break backwards compatibility in order to fix some of these issues.

Still a great language to learn though!
