Hey, I'm the author of Akira and the other apps you mentioned, thank you so much :D
Regarding Vala, I can tell you from personal experience that it was really easy to learn. I have a background in web development heavily focused on PHP, and when I decided to play with some native Linux applications, it was really hard to even understand the basics of Qt or C++.
Vala was a breath of fresh air. A really clean language, way less verbose compared to others, and with a decent introductory documentation thanks to the elementary OS community.
Cheers

It's awesome that you're building cool things with Vala! I'm thinking of starting a series on this blog of interviews with maintainers of open source projects (sort of like Coders at Work). Would you be willing to be interviewed for the series?

Absolutely, I'd be honoured!
