So if you are looking forward to learn C++ in 2019, I present to you the 30 Seconds of C++.

A collection of STL (Standard Template Library) features of C++ which can be learned in 30 seconds or less.

What is it again? 🧐

30 Seconds of C++ (hereafter referred to as 30C++) is a collection of modern C++ STL features like algorithms, containers, etc combined into short C++ snippets that can be learned in 30 seconds or less. Inspired by the 30 Seconds of Code

Why did you make it? 😮

I personally find it hard to learn modern C++ (C++ 14,17) through numerous C++ tutorials which either have incomplete info or if you wanna go further you may find yourself browsing these websites for modern C++

The problem with the above 2 resources is that they sometimes give too much info overshadowing the simple things to understand and from a perspective of a “beginner” who has just started learning that can be frustrating. Although both these resources are damn good if you have a basic understanding which 30C++ can give.

Why would I learn C++? 😒

No doubt languages like JavaScript, Python, Java are ruling the programming world currently but the undoubted presence of C++ in the top 10 languages prove that C++ is evergreen and its presence will never diminish. Check out these blogs for detailed comparisons :

TIOBE Index C++

Although to not break your bubble C++ takes a ton of time to master & feel its true essence. (figuring out myself)

I myself use Python as my main language but over the years C++ has helped me become a better developer, even if you are new to programming, using C++ as your starter language will be a good choice.

Even if you’re not learning C++ from Job point of view, it offers a ton of learning experience. See 5 Reasons Why You Should Keep Learning C/C++

More Resources

Here are some of the resources (blogs) which I currently follow :

PS: avoid these if you are very new to C++

How will it help me? 🤔

  • 30C++ includes all the modern C++ features & more of them are coming day by day.
  • It can help you learn modern C++ step by step without browsing through any lousy and confusing documentation.
  • Currently, some of the library headers available are :
    • <algorithm>
    • <list>
    • <stack>
    • <queue>
    • <vector>
  • Also learning modern C++ will surely help if you are seeking a professional career in C++.
  • If you are a CS Student then learning C++ will be surely helpful, Why CS students must learn C++ as their main programming language
  • All the Snippets are explained in an easy to understand lucid manner with a link to run the example code.

  • As quoted by Bartlomiej Filipek

    I am not saying that C++ is fantastic and you should abandon everything and just stick to it. If you’re just starting it’s good to have more options and learn different things. Even if you’re a C++ guy already, it’s vital to learn something new and improve.
