Background of C++ 🔗
Compare that to C++, which is a middle-level programming language developed by Bjarne Stroustrup starting in 1979 at Bell Labs. It runs on a variety of platforms, such as Windows, Mac OS, and the various versions of UNIX. It’s a sort of extension of C, as I mentioned above. It’s considered “C with classes,” hence the name C++.
For more reading (which I recommend!) check out Oracle’s help doc on the subject.
C++ Advantages 🔗
As a C++ developer, your average salary will be higher, clocking in at $113k annually according to Indeed. Some companies, like Selby Jennings, are willing to pay $220k per year to get a good C++ developer.
Career Prospects 🔗
C++, meanwhile, gives you options like becoming a software engineer, a video game developer, or even a DevOps engineer. Pretty much anything that requires that heavy, fast computation is a good job option for a C++ developer.
