C++ and Java ecosystems were run over by people who read The GoF book and decided to generate every single permutation and combination of those patterns. Code largely comes out like AbstractFactoryServeletConfigurationSingletonDispatcher.

Also a lot of applications were written as huge monoliths even a few years back.

These days people write applications to do one task properly.

My experience with C++ has been watching a trend towards standardization across platforms, and incorporation of functional programming concepts.

I was slightly surprised when I Googled AbstractFactoryServeletConfigurationSingletonDispatcher that your comment was the only match (at least at the time I looked).

That's possible. Last time I checked not everyone working in every single company uploads their code to some public website.

Also that word represents a culture which is what I was talking about.
