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 context. >>> What do you guys think?

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.
