    What is C++?

    C++ (C plus plus) is a cross-platform programming language, created by computer scientist Bjorne Stroustrop in 1979. It is an extension of the C programming language and allows developers to create programs that can run on different operating systems very easily.

    The programming language can be found in a wide variety of industries and can be used to develop a broad range of software’s including: operating systems, game development, IoT devices, medical technology, google search engine and scientific research.

    What are the benefits?

    Portability- C++ is a highly portable language. It allows programmers to move the development of a program from one platform to another. Programmers have the ability to develop codes on a different platform without any errors.

    Object Oriented- C++ is an object-oriented programming language which includes classes, inheritance, polymorphism, data abstraction and encapsulation. This allows programmers to treat data as objects and classes, giving the program a big advantage over other programming languages.

    Memory Management-  It allows programmers to allocate storage space while the program is running, giving them total control over memory management.

    Fast- It is one of the fastest and most predictable languages, making it a preferred choice when latency is a critical metric.

    What are the disadvantages?

    No security– Object-oriented programming languages face several security issues which makes C++ less safe compared to other programs.

    No garbage collection support- Garbage collection is the process of managing memory automatically, allowing programmers to find unused objects and delete them to free up memory. C++ does not have a garbage collector to automatically filter out unnecessary data. This means that programmers have to manually manage memory.

    No support for threads built-in– The programming language does not support built-in code threads.


    C++ is an adaptable and flexible high-level programming language used by many programmers and software developers.
