C++ is an object oriented programming (OOP) language, created by Bjarne Stroustrup in 1983.
It is considered as an improvement of the old C language, with some additions that we’ll see later on.
C++ is widely used, from kernels to commons applications, thanks to its powerful features and speed of code execution.
We have to remember that C++ is a compiled language, when you create your program, you have a compiled executable that is written in binary language, according to your machine platform (x86-x64). So since you execute something written in machine code, your c++ program will run blazing fast, compared to other programs written in not-compiled programming languages.
I’ll write a series of written tutorials, to learn at first the basics, and then, some advanced stuff.
See you next time!
