Stroustrup Says C++ Education Needs To Improve

Kristopher Johnson Re:more to it (567 comments)

I agree completely. I hate seeing so-called "experts" who recommend using some crippled, archaic, pidgin version of C++, then complain that C++ is "too low-level."

C++ is definitely not for the "I can learn any programming language in a weekend" kinds of people. It's complex, and has many warts, but trying to make it simple and clean is counter-productive. Stick with VB, C#, or Java if C++ isn't your kind of language.
