Hi, totally agree C/C++ will outlive many of these new languages.
due to WebAssembly steadily improving.
Been working/programming for 43 years now, while I fondly remember
Pascal on CP/M from my youth (before C++ was invented), once I switched
to C++ in the early 90's (Visual C++/MFC), C++ always felt as my "home".
Also you could say that good and stable ecosystems for a language takes
decades to arrive, at least one generation of programmers has to come
and go I think. So the peak of C++ will be in the future :-)
