  • MySQL, MongoDB, Redis Database Engines
  • Cloud/Distributed Systems

Use of C++

  • C++ is used by many more programmers in essentially every application domain.
  • C++ is widely used to write device drivers and other software that depends on the direct manipulation of hardware under real-time constraints.
  • C++ is clean enough for successful teaching of basic concepts, so it is highly used for teaching and research

C++ Standard Libraries

  • The core library gives all the building blocks including data types, variables, and literals. 
  • C++ Standard Library gives a rich set of functions handling files, strings, etc.
  • The Standard Template Library (STL) gives a rich set of methods for handling the data structures, etc.
