How hard to learn c++
It’s easy if you follow tutorials. Granted It was easier because I understood Python in which the concepts are universally the same. C++ is one of the tougher ones, as far as syntax (the way it’s written), which is really the only reason people say it's hard. However, it’s not too hard to get used to as long as you practice. This guy does a great job teaching it: .

I do want to mention that what I posted is a different aspect of C++ programming, which deals with graphics/Directx/HLSL, a lot of the stuff is much different/tougher, which I'm currently learning. This guy that I'm following does teach Directx along with C++ concepts, although for someone new to the language, I think it would be difficult to understand. Here's the link:

I believe matlab was written in C++, matlab is unforuntately a software you'd have to pay for, but I personally love its simple graphics. Geospatial plotting is still better in python imo because matlab uses basemap, which appears somewhat archaic
