The most popular programming language of all time is the C programming language. Even today, it is either the most popular or the second most popular according to TIOBE. Its object oriented descendant, C++, is also among the most used programming languages, and together C/C++ are the de facto leaders in the world of computer science. All versions of Unix (AIX, HPUX, Solaris, etc.), Linux, Mac OS, and Microsoft Windows are written in C/C++ for the most part. Very popular software products are written in C/C++ including Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari (with some Objective-C in the latter).

Though C was developed in 1973, and C++ ten years later, both languages continue to flourish today. At Systematic Computer Science we do find a much smaller percentage of clients who want to build new applications using C/C++, but the amount of existing code using them is absolutely staggering. C/C++ continue to hold on to their reputation for being lightning fast, especially compared to the modern crop of interpreted languages such as Java, PHP, Python, and so on. Wherever there is a need for a super-fast application, especially in the embedded system domain (smartphones being the prime example these days), there will be a strong case for C/C++.

Systematic Computer Science provides the following services for this technology:

  • technical consulting and training engagements
  • development and troubleshooting
  • maintenance and support contracts

We have used this technology for the following clients: Georg Fischer Signet, Irvine Optical Company, King Abdulaziz Center for Science and Technology, Laboratoire d'Oceanographie et du Climat, Toro.
