will rust and go share a similar fate to ruby, php and perl?
why did ruby die?
will google carbon (which doesn't really exist yet) survive rust and go?
what makes a programming language sticky and why do they die?

in this video chris explores the 4 major reasons why a programming language survives and why it dies. he looks at popular languages of today and of the past and explores which languages are likely to flourish or survive and which ones are likely to die or are dying. he looks at the reasons why and what those languages can do to survive.

if you're interesting in programming languages and their history and where you should invest your time, this should be an interesting watch. if not controversial
