Ok, so many of the jobs I am applying for now want C++ experience. Problem is, none of the companies I have worked for in the past 8 years wanted me to write in C++. The industry used to use Ada, and many legacy programs still have all their code in Ada. Not only that, but the companies that use C++ often use model-based development suites, meaning they don’t write any actual code, the compiler does it all for them.
Anyway, I am quite familiar with C++. It was the first real language I ever programmed in (not counting Quick Basic). I took 3 years of C++ in high school. I did all sorts of things in the days before Java, Python, Perl, .NET, etc… Now days, I’m not even sure people know what C++ means. They probably use so many libraries, they really only use C++ for the Syntax and wide array and industry tested (and free) compilers.
Long story a little bit shorter, I have started to upload some of my old C++ code to my SVN server. The page describing it all is on my website here: C++ Code.
That is all.
