Re: Ruby vs Java vs c++

My advice:

Learn C++ but ignore/avoid these parts of the language:

  • friend functions
  • multiple inheritance
  • operator overloading
  • function pointers
  • nested classes

Learn the fundamental concepts of object-oriented programming.
Understand pointers (critical for 1st time programmers).

Once you have a good feel for C++, I’d recommend moving to Java, C#,
or Ruby.

Most everything I do is in C++, but that’s because I’m a component
developer.
If I were building apps heavy in database and GUI, I would not choose
C++.
