Discussion on: What was your worst experience with a programming language?

I have no hands on experience with Scala, my post was mainly based on the ex-colleague's experiences. I do believe however that it's one of the more complex programming languages, the type system is complicated and very arcane. It's also not a pure FP language, it's an OO/FP hybrid, two paradigms in one, that's probably not making it any easier. Some bigger companies love it though, apparently it isn't the worst choice if you want a 'corporate' job.
