C and C++ is easily the best programming language to develop high frequency trading systems aka HFT

I got a query from someone via Youtube:
I like your material. You explain concepts thoroughly and concisely. I am a data scientist trying to turn trader. I prefer open source environments and R (the latter led me to your videos). In your opinion, what is the best platform to get started trading stocks intraday and perhaps HFT?

There is no bones about it. I have done 5 years of solid K&R C for 5 years or so I know the power but simplicity of this language. C++ is the standard but complicated. It takes time to code up things where you can do it within seconds with languages like C#, F#, Python, and others. Each has their unique with drawback. My end target goal is simple, get back to being a master of the language I still love C but actually in C++ with Linux. That could take years personally. That could take me literally years to get to but it is definitely on the bucket list.

Oh yeah, I forgot the other language which is Java. It is the next powerful language but seem s ot have dropped lately but it is still definitely a contender.
