from Java to C++Java is, in my opinion, a ridiculously easy language to learn. C++ on the otherhand, can be rather confusing for a while, and there are many more pitfalls and slight differences which are easy to overlook if you're used to using java.

Re: from Java to C++Actually, I had a similar idea way back when. However, it was for the reverse direction. The idea was to write a book, or perhaps a series of books. It would assume knowledge of C++ and then teach only differences in syntax and structure. The idea is that once you know a language, it really only takes 23 hours to become familiar with another. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..."
