Hi there I really wished you offered C++ courses as I am heading off to my last year of uni which requires C++ knowledge! :( I hardly know anything about c++
Thank you very much for writing and sharing some thoughts on content you'd like to see Treehouse cover. C++, while still used in some legacy programs and schools, is fast becoming outdated. Even schools using it for the AP CS programs are starting to move away from C++.
To do justice to this language would require a full-time teacher and considerable additional resources we're unable to commit to at this time. Python, C#, and Java may all be suitable and relevant language substitutions with modern application. Thank you once more!
Hey Justin and Jerrell,
We do appreciate the feedback about this. That information was provided to us by our Teaching Team, however C++ is something that is on our radar to possibly cover as we have received quite a few requests for it from other students as well. Be sure to keep an eye on our Roadmap for updates!

I joined tree house looking for C++ also. No need to really keep my subscription now. Thanks
Following up (agreeing) with previous comments: right C++ exist from the 70's but are you aware that there's a C++11, c++14 and c++17 (referring to 2011, 2014 and 2017) from committee where C++ is no longer the old school stuff but the language is now more powerful than ever?
C++ is still the software used to talk to the hardware, starting from there anything that goes on top of the hardware (operating systems for computers, industrial devices, driverless cars, etc....) uses C++ and this will certainly be a great opportunity for "updating" three house.
Make it practical and I'll be back to paid member of tree house ;)
PS: searching for c++ in your site I find out that there's a crowd out there looking forward to it here on 3house
C++ Please :-D
C++ is awesome
Come on teamtreehouse, let's get some C++ curriculum :)
I agree C++ would be a great addition to the TreeHouse courses. Please add C++!
Please add C++ Treehouse!!!
Please add c++ courses
I agreed, in fact, I join Treehouse seeking for a C/C++ course, I stay because of all the other great courses, but still it'll be great if you gave us a C++ course!
i joined for c++ and am leaving for no c++........like how do you not offer this language, but offer java?....comon man....think it through....
Any updates on this!! I would love to see an c++ course!!

C++ please team treehouse!!!
this is the next stage of treehouse where it moves from being more of a website and app programming tutorial site (a very good one at that) to a fully fledged software engineering tutorial site.
C++ would benefit from tutorials in your style and with the tracks system of learning. even doing things in parallel with python so as to compare the two would be fantastic.
So again, please add C++ (2017)
Thanks for all your good work so far.

Had subscribed TreeHouse earlier many times for Python and Java. This time came looking for C++. Please add this course ASAP :)

I was really hoping for a C++ course. Seeing as it is would be extremely beneficial in my line of work.

Having a C++ course on Treehouse would help supplement the college course I have to take on my degree path. Food for thought!
I have a question: If a software programme was coded in an old version of C++ (like from 1996), can someone update the code using C++ 17 to add new functionality to the software? In other words, you add the new syntax functions to older code. Would that work? Sorry if this is a stupid question, I'm new here. We have an old software programme that needs updating, made in the 90's in C++.
Anyone can answer or give their input. Thank you.
+1 for c++, its popularity has increased even more with unreal engine and game development. Udacity has a nanodegree but there teaching style is not a good as treehouse

That initial reply about C++ should be deleted. It doesn't make the Treehouse Team look good at all.
How in the world is it becoming "fast outdated"....
just wanted to add that just by delving a bit deeper than the ussual I and many of my colleagues would see a c++ course on treehouse to be a major asset. I love how courses are done here on treehouse and have gained substantial knowledge from you guys. It just seems like such a large part of programming knowledge is being left out if you don't have c++ in your repertoar. peace and love
I wish I could learn C++ on Teamtreehouse, since I want to develop games with Unreal engine.
