C++ is a language for object-oriented programming

C++ is a programming language for object-oriented and imperative programming, developed by Bjarne Stroustrup at the end of the 1980s. C++ can be seen as an extension of the C programming language. C++ allows efficient, low-level programming, and programming on a high abstraction level. C++ is both an imperative and object-oriented programming language. Object orientation means that you attempt to model program like in the “real” world with the help of objects that interact with one another. Imperative programming means that you issue the computer with a series of commands to determine what order something should follow.

C++ has become increasingly widespread over the past few years – mainly for two reasons: the object-oriented programming is a good alternative to traditional programming techniques, and a passable option for large software projects to both maintain and write programs. Furthermore, C++ contains the full range of language from C, which means that a developer who is already experienced in C will find it easy to transition and further use their previous knowledge, as well as all the C routines and libraries.

C++ is suitable as a programming language for large software projects

In contrast to other modern programming languages such as Java and C#, some concepts such as manual memory management and pointer arithmetic, which are regarded as complex and error-prone, exist in C++. Therefore, it is often easier to learn the basics of programming on the basis of these other languages first and then later to go into C++ with these complex concepts – especially for beginners. On the other hand, C++ gives developers who have just entered an overview of the fundamental components of programming languages. In addition, C++ lets you develop more efficient programs since the developer has more control than in other programming languages.
