I’ve seen a lot of people asking me this question about what C/C++ means. For new software developers, this might not make any sense. After all, why do these companies put in their job listing that they want a C/C++ developer?
I’ve had this doubt myself back then and this is totally normal.
This is exactly what George asked me:
“What I don’t understand is why I always see C/C++ in the job listing; as far as I know, those are different languages and somebody told me that C is mostly for hardware and embedded devices. I’m currently not that interested in that, but why do we always see the C/C++ thing and not only one language? Do people really always use both languages at the same job? Is it a bad idea to leave C aside and focus on C++ because I am really interested in competitive programming right now?”
So, do you wanna know why some companies ask for C/C++ programmers? Watch this video and find out!
