No. He was not saying that. He was saying, you are not bad builder because you are using machines, you are bad builder if you are using machines, without understanding the basic concepts like how to put bricks by hand. Because sometimes, to get something done properly, you need to use your hands.

That's okay, you should know the basics before you start using more advanced tools.

And we conceptually wasn't wrong, Memory management in C++ is relatively easier than C, but the amount of control that C provided meant that your skills can directly impact the quality of resultant code.

That's right, but on the other hand, C++ is much more complex language considering it has templates and other advanced constructs compared to C.
