Ancient Coding Practices - Is C ++ old?

So I got told / asked by a non programmer,

“If something is coded in C ++, doesn’t that make it old?”

I responded that programming in C would be old, but C ++ is still being used quite a bit.

But having said that, am wondering if my idea of old vs current might be out of step with the general discussion.

I know there are newer languages available now, my university education was done during the final days of Pascal.

Also many millennials probably call C / C ++ / Object C, all ancient… :slight_smile:

Maybe I should change my position.
