- Why do I have to learn C++ anyway?
Plenty of reasons.
- It's a high-level language, but close enough to the hardware that we
can use it to study how data structures are stored in memory.
- Tons of people use it, and its predecessor, C, too. Both are in
general use in a range of areas, so you can't go wrong by learning one
- It's easy to move from C++ to C, or to a higher level language like
Java or C#.
- Because you can't use Python for everything. It's an amazing
language, but it's slow and just not designed for operating systems,
device drivers, and other high performance areas.
- Why isn't Handin working?
- In most cases, because you typed the command wrong. Check each part
- Help! I just got dozens of errors when compiling!
- Scroll up to the top of the list, and tackle the first one. Often,
the first error is the cause of all the others.
