Thanks for any input
AKAIK, the portfolio is there to show you skills and I would be far more concerned to know that you can program and finish a project. The language is irrelevant for the portfolio.
The programming test however, is a different story but as long as you know the language, you will be fine.
You can always contact HR of various companies and see if they need a C++ piece for the portfolio if you are still on the fence.
