You should be OK, I believe they're intending to get new standards out more frequently, so you'll have a new language (C++ NN) to learn every 2-3 years.

Makes it a pain keeping up to date - they've only just got a couple of compilers to 100% C++ 11 and C++ 14 is due fairly soon.

GeneralOn the technology side, this really should be multiple choice. Pin
