Pro is Latin for "for"; contra is Latin for "against". Con is simply short for contra (a single syllable to match pro).
For those who want a dictionary, this is OED:
In the context of the CV quoted, it's essentially meaningless. It might mean that he's actually no good at C++, which is unlikely; or it might mean that having used C++ in gaming he's not much use for anything else; or something else.
It's not actually an abbreviation
Look at entries for pros and cons under either pro or con in a dictionary. Where pros are the good things about someone or something, cons are the qualities that get in the way.
