General Development "For years I've tried my damnedest to get away from C. Too simple, too many details to manage, too old and crufty, too low level. I've had intense and torrid love affairs with Java, C++, and Erlang. I've built things I'm proud of with all of them, and yet each has broken my heart. They've made promises they couldn't keep, created cultures that focus on the wrong things, and made devastating tradeoffs that eventually make you suffer painfully. And I keep crawling back to C."

As far as I can tell, for all programming languages the majority of problems/bugs are caused by people having trouble dealing with complexity.

The C++ way of dealing with problems caused by complexity is to add more complexity.
