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


Since I'm someone with a C/Go/Asm background, I've had a real hard time to understand FP and the whole thing with lambda calculus behind it. The fact that I also disliked the paradigm (since it really differs from how a computer actually works) didn't help much.

Erlang and haskell took me a while to understand due to the reasons mentioned above.

Rust gave me a hell of a headache with the borrow checker and its lifetimes.

Modern javascript was (and still is) a pain in the ass for me. I used to do some stuff with it back in 2012, before ES6. Modern JS just pisses me off, and it only gets even worse when I see that it's trying to adopt lots of FP concepts into it.
