I have worked with Visual C++ for 3.5 years, extensively using COM and DCOM, but left Visual C++ programming almost 3 years ago to study for another MSc and using Java and open source technologies for 1.5 years, now I am working as a network administrator. In short completely out of touch with C++ programming. I am now trying to get back into Visual C++ programming and trying to find a job related to C++ programming, but although I do get lot of interview calls but fail in technical interviews. I am trying to study C++ books to revise what I used to do quite okay. Has anyone else gone through the same situation, if yes what is the best possible way to get back to it, and be successful in an interview. Please suggest.
