I got an opportunity to work on C++ in my new project.
I am basically a Java/J2ee developer, working last 7 yrs. I have never explicitly worked on C++ exept in my academic project.

If I accept the offer, what are the chalenges can be expected in near future.
Will I give the justification for the new role. I am good in OOP concepts; still doubting.

Can any body has this type of experience??

Please suggest me.

Thanks in advance.

Learning new languages is a good thing. The challenge will be learning to manage memory. This will make you a stronger developer.

With C++ you can become even more adept at oops! Go for it.
