C++ bootcamp

I keep getting pinged for positions because I have the domain expertise but consistently get turned down for not having a production c++ background. I can code numerical stuff pretty well in languages like python, Julia, but keep running into this chicken or the egg problem.

Anyone know of a good c++ boot camp or course? I saw Udacity has something now.

    Is it that you lack C++ knowledge (as a language and platform) or that you don’t have experience using it?

      The language knowledge you should get via books. If you have specific questions I might be able to help you raise your C++ level through some small coding assignments (completely unrelated to leetcode bullshit). Obviously getting more real experience is something you would have to work on your own
