The lasting experience with C++ has sharpened our ability to indicate whether it would fit your project well.
When is it recommended to use C++ and why?
- Performance is a key aspect
- Real time control is a must
- Developing embedded applications, drivers and microcontrollers
- Automating industrial systems
- C++ produces the fastest native applications
- It enables good memory management
- C++ is able to handle Big Data Models
C++ may be the final option for:
- CAD software development
- Control systems
- Operating systems
- Embedded software

Good to know:
C++ was the most popular object oriented language at the end of the 20th century. For some years there are other OO languages that gained huge popularity. Many have buried the C++ language since, but there are some areas, where it blossoms quite well. These areas typically use C++ for some of these reasons: It lets you go low-level; You can’t „afford” another platform (or virtual machine) between your code and the OS; You need close control of memory management; You have legacy C/C++ code that you want to use. The language is not so „limited” as other popular OO languages. Think about multiple inheritances, advanced template usage, etc. Other languages offer different features to ease coding, but in the same time they are missing some.
We have developers who worked for years in C++, and most of them were involved in quite big and challenging projects. They learned many tricks and pitfalls of C++, and have seen how the advanced features are used in real life.
