Development is an easy task due to advancement and availability of several IDE’s and tools. In most cases you probably don’t need to remember the syntax, you don’t need to design the interfaces from scratch. In case none of the template matches the required ones’, then use drag and drop tools to create interface. The story begins with “Hello World!”, and never ends. In recent years the Software Development is more like drag and drop.
First, ask yourself, what you want to do in your life? If you want to earn money in shortest possible time, if you want to develop a small-scale application such as Windows apps or Android apps; then probably C++ is not for you. These tasks can be easily achieved in C# or JAVA. On the other hand, the direction of your dreams is to implement Search Engine, algorithm design, database, robotics or server applications, then obviously your choice should be none other than C++.
