The Obsolescence of C, and What Comes Next

Eric S. Raymond
Talk Description: 

While C is still going strong today and is unlikely to be pushed out of niches like hard real-time and kernels anytime soon, the signs that it may soon be displaced from most of its historic range are increasing. The speaker, a C programmer since before the language achieved dominance
around 1985, takes a hard look at the long-term economic and technological forces driving shifts in language deployments and delivers actionable advice on what languages to learn next.
