Hey Marcos,

While C++ is indeed a powerful language, Treehouse tends to focus on technologies more commonly associated with web development and modern languages are generally far easier to use than C++ for such tasks. That being said, from an anecdotal perspective, our team is well aware of the common C++ requests, so it could be a direction we eventually choose to explore. Of course, there are no guarantees, however. Thanks for your thoughts.

Thanks for the information its what I was trying to find out.
