Why you should learn c++ in 2021

I think there is the enormous reason behind learning c++ in 2021 because people are still using c++ in many applications.

Let’s first take a look at some of the applications that are popularly written in C++ :

  1. Web Browsers
  2. High-Performance Games
  3. Divers and Embedded Systems of Some Hardwares (e.g. Vechiles, Mobile Phones, Computers)
  4. Some Machine Learning and Data Mining Applications
  5. Low Latency Trading Systems
  6. Video and Media Editors
  7. Scientific Researches, Mathematical Modelings & Financial Modelings
  8. Other CPU and Resource Demanding Applications

Web Browser

Did you know that we can create web browser by c++ programming, yes it’s true that we can web browser by c++.

Using C++ and the Qt frame work it is easy to build a web browser. I accomplished this using Qt creator, creating a desktop application, adding a QWebViewer, tossing in a few buttons, and a URL edit line and bingo!

You can refer this link to create web browser using C++.

High Performance Game

We can create high performance Game with the C++, below are list of games which is created with c and c++.

Drivers and embeded system

As we know now a day’s IoT is huge in demand, and that’s the strong reason why you should learn c++ in 2021.

By design, C++ lends itself to embedded development because the language sits in between higher-level software and hardware, allowing you to access and control hardware directly without sacrificing the benefits of a high-level language. It’s particularly effective for hardware that will need to be around for a while, as programs written in C++ can operate for decades at a time due to the language’s high stability.

Machine Learning and Data Mining Applications

C++ programming is also used in machine learning and data mining application. Data mining is a process of extracting and discovering patterns in large data sets involving methods at the intersection of machine learning, statistics, and database systems. 

Low latecy trading system

In capital markets, low latency is the use of algorithmic trading to react to market events faster than the competition to increase the profitability of trades. For example, when executing arbitrage strategies the opportunity to “arb” the market may only present itself for a few milliseconds before parity is achieved. To demonstrate the value that clients put on latency, in 2007 a large global investment bank has stated that every millisecond lost results in $100m per annum in a lost opportunity.

Video and media editor

Photo or video editor which is made for windows are written in c++, for example openShot video editor which is made with C++.

Scientific Researches, Mathematical Modelings and Financial Modelings

C++ is widely used for scientific researches, Mathematical Modelings and Financial Modelings.

A mathematical model is a description of a system using mathematical concepts and language. The process of developing a mathematical model is termed mathematical modeling.

Financial modeling is the task of building an abstract representation of a real-world financial situation. This is a mathematical model designed to represent the performance of a financial asset or portfolio of a business, project, or any other investment.

CPU and resource demanding application

It is also helpful in creating CPU and resource-demanding applications.

I hope now understand whar are key areas or benefits of learning c++ in 2021, But still,
there is a big question from where we learn c++
