Part IV: Elegance and Other Design Ideals
There's a great set of C++ resources listed at the end of each interview segment. You should also be sure to check out the Articles About C++ page for more C++ goodness.

  • thanks for the heads up.
  • C++ is a joke its nothing but a pigs (and MC++ adds more pigs mess to it) mess of MACROS, DEFINES and crap.

    C++ is becoming bloated with kludges and patches.
  • Remove the preprocessor.
  • Lack of properties on C++, you have to kludge them in using Templates or just a pigs mess of get_ and set_ methods.

    MC++ adds even more junk.
  • Templates. yeah , more pre processor junk, not proper types.
  • Constructors, yeah we like the way you can set methods in ctors in C++, its Pig ugly.
  • unnamed enums and structs, lovely all good for readability. Lets encourage it more. Pig Ugly.
  • Nice. It's interesting to see how Bjarne has changed his point of view about OOP over the years.
  • C++ in any form is too risky for business now.

    C++ == Kludge++

    They need to start again, oh wait, its called C#.

  • Whoever was the dumbass ranting about c++'s apparent shortcommings, get a clue.
