C++ Language Classes

What is C++ programming Language?

C++ is a general-purpose object-oriented programming language. It was created by Bjarne Stroustrup at Bell Labs circa 1980. C++ is very similar to C (invented by Dennis Ritchie in the early 1970s). C++ is so much compatible with C that it will probably compile over 99% of C programs without changing a line of source code. Though, C++ is a lot well-structured and safer language than C as it OOPs based..

Object-Oriented Programming (OOPs)

C++ supports the object-oriented programming, the four major pillar of object-oriented programming (OOPs) used in C++ are:

  •  Inheritance
  •  Polymorphism
  •  Encapsulation
  •  Abstraction

Why use C++?

Some examples of the use of C++ might be −

  •  Telephone Switches
  •   Language Compilers
  •  Embedded Systems
  •   Database
  •   Cloud/Distributed Systems
  •   Banking Applications
  •   Graphics
  •   Libraries
  •   Browsers
  •   Utilities

Advantages of C++ Language

C++ has the following 2 features that make it a preferred choice in most of the applications:

Speed:

C++ is faster than most other programming languages and it provides excellent concurrency support. This makes it useful in those areas where performance is quite critical and the latency required is very low. Such requirements occur all the time in high-load servers such as web servers, application servers, database servers, etc. C++ plays a key role in such servers.

Closer to hardware:

C++ is closer to hardware than most other programming languages like Python, etc. This makes it useful in those areas where the software is closely coupled with hardware and low-level support is required at the software level.
