@EdwardTorvalds probably because people go to conferences for things thet enjoy and like. All the people I've met who use C, do so because the have to, not because they want to.

In many cases it's the best tool, but best doesn't automatically mean good or fun if all the tools in the domain kinda suck.

@zangetsu_MG @EdwardTorvalds Chris Wellons, the author of the nullprogram article, genuinely loves C. Many others do too—certainly enough to fill a conference.

@zangetsu_MG then what these people are interested in? modern alternatives like Go, Rust?
