I don't know. I think we'll have software generating software by then and solve the problem at the root :D

All these languages are super fine but we talk A LOT about code reuse but then anytime there's a new language we have to reimplement all the building blocks from scratch.

Maybe the best approach is something akin to OTP, which is shared by all the languages around Erlang?

Why do we need to re-write standard libraries for each and every language? I know the answer but still, maybe one day we won't have to.

In other words we're the problem. πŸ€”

Not necessarily but we tend to "fork" instead of "merge" a lot.

We tell ourselves there are perfectly reasonable technical motivations for this or that new technology to be totally incompatible with the other one yet created to solve the same exact purpose :D
