Interesting Comments On C++
« on: June 24, 2014, 09:40:24 PM »
It appears the tide has finally turned away from OOP, design patterns, templates, and several other hallowed C++ entities ...

I wonder how many C++ coders are like myself and really code more with C-isms than pure template based propper C++?  I see comments to that affect more and more.  And that article flushes out in the open some of those ideas.  Many of the links given are also interesting.

Interesting blog, and the comments too.

I think OOP is needed for dealing with multiple items: controls, particles and animations, but offers no advantage for implementing a program's core functions.

The natural extension of the OOP concepts is a database - with records and fields, we are back on familiar territory.
