@CortAmmon Thanks for your answer, I know a few self-taught C++ programmers as well and they are quite good.

comment Is it possible to learn C++ on the fly?
@Seeist It seems like what you're looking for is a programming language that's good for beginner programmers. Java (Eclipse IDE is good and free) is very popular, there's also scripting languages like Ruby and Python. There are also programming languages specificially aimed towards beginners like Alice, Scratch, or Squeak. There tends to be a mentality that C/C++ is first taught to programmers because it is so hard and low-level, so that programmers can grasp the value of well-written code, low-level concepts like memory, and the value of the upper-level languages (like Java).

comment What are the steps required to ensure you've covered technical due diligence when purchasing a software product (and IP) created by another company?
Also, What are the users saying about the product? How long will they continue to provide support? What are the licensing terms, do they fit my needs, and does the company have the right to change the terms later in a way that will make trouble for me?
