Also, one other commenter mentioned getting older (or more mature), your definition of "knowing" something changes, and gets a lot of depth. When we were kids, writing 2 C++ programs meant we KNEW C++ (ROTFLMAO). Most people came from C, and could write C code in C++... A huge difference, and we "know" that at a deeper level now!


I think my problem might be a bit of imposter syndrome. Even now I don't think I can code very well in C++, if I'm being honest with myself. I fake my confidence, because I figure maybe I can fake it til I make it.

That said, intellectually I know I underestimate myself when I assess my abilities.

And most of my C++ code could not be written in C very readily. I use a lot of "advanced" C++ features like metaprogramming.
To err is human. Fortune favors the monsters.
