Advanced Programming Exam and Result

C++ vs C#

Last Wednesday I had an exam for the Advanced Programming module. The exam was about the syntax and use of the C++ Language and the ability to read Assembly Language. I was fairly confident, even though I have personally developed very few C++ applications. As more of an application developer than a real time system or game developer I prefer to ease, reliability and stability of C# or other managed languages such as Java over the pure speed of C++.

Having said that, C++ and Assembly are interesting languages and by studying them I feel I have learnt a lot about programming in general, particularly optimization and how things actually work on the hardware.

The exam wen’t well, and I received a mark of 75% — a first class — which I’m very happy with 🙂

In the upcoming semester there will be a coursework and one more exam for the module. Hopefully I do as well in them as I have in this exam 🙂
