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


It's not shockingly original on this thread, but for me it was trying to do anything even remotely serious in C (as in, outside of basic, classroom-like exercises). Coming from JavaScript, it was the memory management that felt like I was swimming with sharks -- as it has been for many others.

Though I would say that's the "hardest" I've learned in terms of the challenge, I actually found myself really enthused at getting into the low-level realm of programming, and felt far more excited by the nitty gritty of C than when I learned Python not too long after. I've considered diving into Scala, but haven't taken the plunge quite yet.

I adore the learning process of taking on a new programming language, and so have just started exploring Rust, and am liking what I'm seeing so far.
