C++ is a statically typed language with rich support for object-oriented programming, generic programming, and metaprogramming. There's also some support for functional programming with C++11. As a professional C++ programmer, I am eager to extend my knowledge of the language and occasionally use it as illustration for my posts.

The wiki cppreference.com is a good online reference, and The C++ Programming Language 4th Edition by Stroustrup is a decent introductions into the breadth and depth of the language if one is already familiar with the basics.
