Hi !





Is there any C++ certification provided by a prestigious company like IBM or Sun ? I know that Brainbench has such a certification but it does not have a lot of value since it is taken online.

This is very strange. C++ has been around for so many years. Not only that, but C++ is a major part of the software development business. What could be the reason for this situation ?

Well, there used to be Microsoft certifications for Visual C++, but I guess Microsoft has phased it out and replaced it with .NET certifications. I guess C++ is on it's way out, atleast for business applications

I believe that is because there are no exclusive C++ vendors (trademark owner) - it's just a widely used standard.

In Java there is one major vendor (trademark owner) - Sun Microsystems, and related products vendors like IBM, BEA, etc...

Just recently we got UML exams from OMG Group. Maybe some other organization will start C++ tests ... who knows ..

I pretty sure that Brainbench has some C/C++ tests, but they are not so valuable on the market (IMHO).
