I everyone. I had my 2nd interview with Linda yesterday. I have been offered conditional admission ( pre-program courses )
My questions is related to the pre C++ course. What OS is the most useful to have ? I have an old mac and relatively new Linux laptop. I know I can run dual boot and get windows on either machine. Just wanted to know if it is used in the program extensively.
First of all, congratulations on the offer.
I don't think you can go wrong with either OS although I don't know too many people running the Linux system.
C++ is an important language to learn from the get-go as it provides a solid low level programming foundation and teaches good data etiquette (i.e. cleaning up after your data). You won't be using it too much during your coursework but, come the internship period, you could miss a great opportunity over not being able to solve interview questions in c++. It is not advised to try to learn it on the job like many other higher level languages.
