Hi, the question you ask does not really make any sense.
The fact is the tools you need for programming are available to every distribution (eg gcc g++ clang, editors, ide or whatever). If you are new to linux you may want to try out a more user friendly distribution like ubuntu (where you would install what you need for programming c/c++ by issuing the command sudo apt-get install build-essential) or fedora (where you would use the command dnf group install Development Tools) but any distro of your choice will work.
To be completely honest, you may as well program in c/c++ on a Windows platform by installing (for example) mingw for linux utilities and compilers, or visual studio (which can compile both c++ and c, for the latter just use .c extension. However VS can be a bit of an overkill just for learning some c/c++).

Honestly, it's more the kernel that makes Linux better for programming than any one distribution. If you're coming from Windows, I'd suggest Linux Mint for its similar interface, and ease-of-use. It also has one of the larger communities behind it for troubleshooting. Hope that helps.
