Why is everyone scared of C++?

Post by John Dupe » Sat Sep 03, 2016 8:20 pm

It seems that on this forum, people hate C++ with a passion. Are there any reason for that? It's super similar to C, and OOP memory management isn't that hard. I've been playing around with C++ and once you get used to it, it just feels normal to use.

I actually like c++ it's the first language I learned. I now program in c# a lot but c++ is very dynamic in what you can achieve you just have to clean up which is easy enough. The thing I hate right now for henkaku is there's no real IDE to use for development.

When it comes to vita code I like to use Visual Studio Code. Before I used sublime text. They are both great editor.

At work I use Android Studio wich is a great IDE but sometime it can be slow or a bit heavy for the system.

I think nobodies is afraid of C++. That's just maybe C is the most common language.

I'd have to agree with you.

Isn't C/C++ the most complex & advanced programming language of all time though? In comparison to Python, it seems to be that way too.
