in the programming world which of the two languages is prefferable in software development ?

Recommended Answers

What is preferable is very subjective in the coding world. I like C++ over C# but I honestly don't really use either. My preferences are VB and VBA.

Both languages have their merits.
It's my impression that you can develop faster in C# than in C++.
C++ programs run faster, because native code is generated by a C++ compiler.
C# programs are a bit slower, because a C# compiler produces intermediate code, to be compiled into native code by a JIT-compiler.

C and later C++ have been used for year because they are easier to use than assemble. But unless you are a very disciplined coder, both languages should be considered to be write-only, meaning they are difficult to maintain, especially for those new to programming.
