C++ Programming at Cambria
C++ programming has had its ups and downs at Cambria. Together with Delphi, C++ is the favorite programming language of Dick, our president, who has worked with it since Cambria first opened its doors in 1984. In the early days Dick was the one most called upon for C and C++ programming and most of the programs we wrote were closely linked to hardware.
Hardware Linked Programming Projects
A major Cambria project some years ago was to write the software for the Mitsubishi line of Diamond Video Series 9100 Group Videoconferencing Systems. This is high end video conferencing at high bandwidths, lip synching, and all the features you would expect from such a system. The project included everything from low level programming that accessed the proprietary hardware of this system to the user interface.
C++ Programming at Cambria Today
Today our C/C++ staff is located in our office in the Philippines and has grown to rival .Net and Java as our single most popular service. Today we have 14 C++ programmers and our staff is steadily growing as new projects come in. As with .Net and other services at Cambria much of what our C/C++ staff does today has to do with the Internet. Our largest current project has to do with improving internet access for users in venues where competition for access is severe. Few things in the modern world more frustrating than not being able to use your cell phone when you most need it and Cambria is working with its clients to solve this problem.
The bottom line is this. Cambria has been offering C/C++ programming services for 35 years and can do just about anything anyone needs to do with this venerable software tool.
1 Cambria Client Roger Williams. The program you use every day is an “executable”. It is created from “source code” written by the programmer. If you own it, anyone can modify the program. If not, you are at the mercy of the vendor. Make sure you own it.
