The more Rust I write, the less I want to write anything else.

Anything in particular you were stuck with? In general, read The Book all the way through, it's great and should get you going, and also don't get too attached to a solution. You may find your first instinct for a problem is not the best way in Rust - if you're getting frustrated with the compiler, you might need to rethink what you're trying to do instead of trying to appease the compiler into making this thing work.

I was just to busy and never got around learning it.

dlang.org/

Hands down. Decided to write up a bunch of articles on using it.

Basically it is a compiled scripting language, with low level power.

The compile time execution makes for very powerful code generation and is fun.

Typescript.

It has almost all the type safety of Java and C#, but it's a much more flexible system. And it's got all the fun of JavaScript, but the type system kills most of the crazy perks JavaScript has.

The only downside is setting up a build system and integrating JavaScript libraries, which sometimes don't mesh well with the type system.

Java, Python, and C. Out of those three, I would say Java (and other java-based languages) are the ones I use the most.

XSLT

eXtensible Stylesheet Language Transformations

Largely, I believe it is used to restructure XML documents.

When I first met C# it was love at first sight ❤️ 😄

Some years later its still C# and also TypeScript (both server-/client-side)

I would have to say Java and C, as those are the only languages I'd feel comfortable developing an application in right now.

...huh. I hate that stuff. Even in 2019, with ECMAScript being what it is?

My preferences go to C and, of course Gwion.
As a side note, I tried Haskell and loved it 😄

smalltalk, prolog, forth and APL are awesome. They are so different than other programming languages. They are cool in their own way.

I get that, I have almost no knowledge of the CPU or the deep working of a computer I think I will look in to it though.
