I wouldn’t consider myself knowledgeable enough for a panel in C++, especially
when it comes to Metaprogramming and Standard library support. That language
and library are so complex, they regularly baffle me.
There are quite a lot of languages that work on embedded by now, with even more
capable microcontrollers on the market.
Also consider the push for even smaller Cortex-A class embedded systems running
Linux directly like Googles Brillo, or Amazons IoT platform.
It gets more and more difficult to justify C++’s language complexity in this

I just gave a long talk about something really cool (I’m not spoiling it) as
exemplified by xpcc, which was received very well, but I wasn’t planning on
giving a talk at FOSDEM’16 though.
The submission deadline is the 18th December for Developer Rooms, so I have
about 10 days to make up my mind.
Let me talk to Kevin and my colleagues first though.
