Learning a new programming language can be a heinous task, especially when faced with biases and myths surrounding the language. In this speech, we will discuss how to overcome biases and break down the barriers to learning a new programming language using technical terms and examples. In the context of programming languages, we will focus on the case of C++ and discuss its features and applications, as well as the perceived biases around the language. We will explore the benefits of using C++ and how it can be used to build high-performance applications and also relate our experiences in learning C++ from Africa that is geographically isolated from other developers and the challenges of mixing and matching of spoken languages. The speech will provide practical tips for learners seeking guidance from experienced programmers. We will also discuss the role of mindset and motivation in the learning process and provide strategies for developing a growth mindset. Attendees will leave this speech with a better understanding of the biases that can impede learning, and the steps they can take to overcome these biases and become successful learners of a C++ programming language. The speech is designed to inspire and encourage beginners to embrace the challenge of learning a C++ programming language and unlock their potential as programmers.

Cpp Africa(Dennis Onyeka ikemefula, Emmanuel Danso Nyarko)

CppAfrica is Africa's first C++ community set up to introduce the world of programming in C++ to the African community. CppAfrica was co-founded by Dennis Onyeka, a software engineer from Nigeria, and Emmanuel Danso Nyarko, a recent computer science graduate from Ghana. It is a growing... Read More →
