    So I just left my job as a Senior .NET developer to take a job as a C++ developer making cross-platform software :noes: :noes: I haven't touched C in about 10 years so I picked up the K&R C Language book to get a good refresher on C and now I'm reading Effective C++ by Scott Meyers. Both excellent books! I have to say I'm excited to start the new job and get to use a new language. It's going to be drastically different from the .NET framework stuff :bigthumb:

    Who else develops C++ code for a living?

    I develope embedded C code for handheld instruments using Texas Instruments DSP platforms... its fun, C is easy, too bad it sounds like you have been spoiled by VB... I assume you used to do either VB or Java... since .NET is not a language lol.

    Main difference... pointers, aka direct memory addressing, which is actually very usefull in an embedded environment with very little resources, certain tricks can be implemented to reduce resource consumption

    Yeah I preferred C# out of the .NET stable of languages. I love the fact that I'll be responsible for my own memory management. I love the .NET framework but I hate not knowing what it's doing under the hood!

    Try programming SAP! It is fun when you have to debug SAP code when all of the documentation is in German.
