Key Features of C++


Fast execution speed

With execution speed in mind, C++ is used in a wide range of computation-intensive domains.


C++ supports a variety of programming paradigms like OOP, functional and procedural programming.

High-level programming

C++ standardizes a comprehensive library, enabling the developer to concentrate on the problem.

Low-level programming

C++ masters the strength of its predecessor C and gives the developer access to the bits and bytes.


Thanks to the flexibility and portability, you can find applications written in C++ in every scale.


Although mature, C++ is still evolving and developed by a committee to fit the developers needs.

Get mentored the C++ way

Every language has its own way of doing things. C++ is no different. Our mentors will help you learn to think like a C++ developer and how to write idiomatic code in C++. Once you've solved an exercise, submit it to our volunteer team, and they'll give you hints, ideas, and feedback on how to make it feel more like what you'd normally see in C++ - they'll help you discover the things you don't know that you don't know.
