I should interview soon for an interesting position and they asked me in an email:
Can you tell me more about your knowledge of C++ (a programming language)? In this way, we could arrange a meeting with XXX.
I know C++ but not really deep. My preferred programming language (or environment, as you like) is MATLAB and I don't use C++ really often.
I think I am really skilled at MATLAB but not (yet) in C++. However, but every time I had to work with C++ I did not have many problems. I would say that it would take me few months (~2-3) to get to full speed with it. I know the basics, the theory etc. I programmed in C++ few times and I can read it with NO problems.
I am scared that if I reply the truth then I will not get either the meeting.
Could you give me your opinions?
