re: What are the hardest programming languages you have ever learned? VIEW POST


Back in college I really struggled with SQL! I remember trying to do things imperatively - grabbing a cursor, explicitly iterating over it, cross referencing other tables. Only after using it a bunch did I learn how to work with SQL's declarative query syntax rather than against it, and I'm much happier now!

In recent memory, Idris was the most mind-bending language I've tried out. It's capable of some really astounding feats, but wrapping my head around dependent types was really challenging. It was very rewarding though; I recommend checking out Idris if you enjoyed Haskell!
