First let us talk about why should we learn C++. C++ ranks 2nd in popularity according to 2018 IEEE spectrum Top Programming Language ranking (link). Learning C++ is a wise investment for all programmers.
C++ is a sophisticated, efficient and a general-purpose programming language based on C. It was developed by Bjarne Stroustrup in 1979. C++ is the preferred language of choice for applications where it's important to write highly-efficient code. These include modern games, operating systems, browsers, and much more.
C++ is also a great programming language as your first programming language since coding in C++ gives you a good idea about how computer memory works, how information is stored in computer memory, and so on.
Let's get started! In this tutorial, you'll see the C++ "Hello World" program, and then understand what each line of the code is doing.
