Computers are one of the most important inventions of the century, and computer languages allow human-computer communication. Undoubtedly, C++ is one of the most important and influential in this group. Nevertheless, new technologies and related industry challenges place high demands on C++ and foster the development of new computer languages that meet new needs. For this reason, and thanks to the dynamically operating ISO standardization group, C++ is constantly updated while maintaining its backward compatibility. However, all this complicates and hinders not only the teaching of beginners but also the use by professionals. In this talk, we briefly discuss the goals as well as the proposed methodologies and techniques for teaching contemporary C++ in the age of new technologies and challenges.
