(I think you meant C vs. C++ in that last sentence in the 2nd reference of the 3).

Wow, honesty in assessing your abilities. That's awesome!
So, push through it. You will pick it up. At the end of the day, you will either make it run correctly, or you will fix it. Support that confidence.

For me, having over 40 programming languages (with over 5 variations of BASIC, 3-4 assembly) under my belt.
I know the KEY Skill is to solve the right problem first. The choice of language after that is syntactical.

Most people fail to properly solve the problem. Or shoehorn it into a construct they understand.

Language portion is well after I have solved the bigger problem. (And yes, sometimes the constructs used in the language and framework chosen are part of the problem, LOL)

Thanks for sharing... I enjoy the things you bring to the surface!
