Mithun asked me “So you are now completely pro in c++?” I replied
- On-the-job technical challenges are not very different from java
- On interviews the QQ topics are different. That’s the real challenge for a java guy moving into c++.
Now I feel a 3rd element is zbs beyond GTD and interviews. I have written many blogposts about “expert”. I also have many blogpost in the category “c++real”
Some may say c++ is overshadowed by java, and c++ QQ is overshadowed by coding IV. Well, we need sharper perception and judgment, and recognize the many facets of the competitive landscape. I won’t elaborate here, but c++ has withstood many waves and is more robust than many other technologies.
