c/c++ is part of the infrastructure of many new technologies, and consequently will last for decades whereas java may not.
😦 This doesn’t mean there will be enough c++ jobs for me and my C++ friends.
- JVM is an infrastructure for a relatively small number of new languages and new frameworks like spring, hadoop,.. However, the machine learning community seem to regard python and c++ as the mainstay.
- Java (not JVM) serves as infrastructure in the new domains of MSA, cloud, big data etc, but not Machine Learning.
