Mastering C++ is also very timeconsuming, it relies on the
pervasive adoption it has as a framework language + regular
updates. C++20 and beyond brings large changes that are likely to
renew interest ( modules, concepts, ranges ). I believe such
changes work for C++ as compilers give developers the ability to
work with older language versions and those are being maintained.
So nobody are forced to upgrade. You can freeze your current
project on C++14 and adopt C++2a on new projects.
According to github stats, only Go and C++ appears to be growing?
Rust has been stagnant since 2014 on github?
Most languages seem to hit a plateu or a ceiling after a few
years. The dominant language in each use scenario appears to take
to be the ones with momentum on github.
