Ever since its release in the 1970’s, the C language has been a popular and versatile tool for software development.  As computers have evolved over the last 40 years, the C language is one of the few constants that has remained.  Its speed, portability, and syntax have helped it to remain the dominant language in most serious software development.  The C and C++ languages are used as the base for most major operating systems, desktop applications, embedded systems, and server software.  Although the popularity of the language for front-end apps has ebbed and flowed over time, the past few years have seen another resurgence of the language, with Microsoft declaring C++ the new primary language for Windows 8 Metro development.

One of the challenges faced by companies over time is maintenance of older software.  As programming teams change, eventually a key developer might no longer be on staff for maintenance of an older software component.  DOS-based C programs, for instance, have a much different set of challenges than Windows C programs, due to the nature of the operating system.  For instance, many DOS programs were written for 16-bit compilation, and upgrading to 32-bit can be a challenge.  Often it’s more cost-effective to keep the program in 16-bit and perform maintenance on the software as necessary.  When inevitable hardware changes may cause the need for a long-term upgrade, the program can then be ported to either Linux or Windows as in-line with the strategic objectives.

C++ is also an excellent language choice when performance is key.  Since the language can easily transition to assembler as necessary, it can provide a bridge between low-level development, while at the same time taking advantage of the wealth of libraries and graphical interface tools available.
