— I'm talking about the average person

— 

And all you're saying is exactly the same. if you dont teach people how basic stuff like an array works, they wont understand it, because they (( sort of )) understand how a vector works.

— I just wanna say that, if this average person want something easier to write, they will never choose C or C++ anyways.

— Don't you understand that you think that basic because you learned it first?

— No i dont, because its simpler than a vector in EVERY aspect possible

— It's not
That's it :)

— Yes it is

— You straightup tell people "arrays are fixed size, you cant change it"

— Problem solved

— My students don't think so
You think it's easy because you know it

— People learn Differently Not everyone is the Same
Some learn easier by actually seeing results and Not Just some console Output
Also yeah for a total beginner vector is easier to use they no need to specify the size before hand and the Compilers are pretty good at optimizing it

You actually need interest in programming with the language and showing total beginners that they can achieve Something is Motivating

— So there is no point of idea that C++ hides some C's complexity(btw C++ add their own complexity), bc if evaluate your logic then any newbie just should stick with JS or python, bc it hides all the complexity at all.
