Tell me about new languages I should learn

So, I’m tired of Python and Golang and would like to learn another language as long as it’s not the following:

  • C (C#, CPP, and so on)
  • Anything related to HTML / web pages.

Accepted:

  • quick
  • simple to use

Langs I’ve daddled with:

  • Golang
  • Python
  • Haskell
  • Crystal

I should mention that if the language uses C but has a completely different syntax, etc., I will still try it out.

Hmm… No C or web related…

If you really want to challenge yourself, how bout an Assembly language? :wink: Or machine code! :joy: (It’s possible!)

But in all seriousness, how about Kotlin? I believe Kotlin is meant to replace Java for Android development, so it might be useful to pick up. Or Swift, for iOS.

The last language I learned was Crystal because some of the syntax was very similar to Python, but I’ll give Kotlin a shot and see if it’s a good fit for me.

Edit:

I tried Kotlin, but when I tried to run the code, it just sat there for a while and did nothing?

Hmm… just tested it, it took a couple of minutes but it did, run. But it took way too long… Might be worth a bug report. Either way, try checking out Swift.

Yes Lua is nice but usually you embed it into C++ apps…

There is that other one I forgot the name of, similar to Roblox but it’s like Unity for LUA.

Hmm? If you remember, tell me the name of it! I would use Unity itself but VSCode intellisense stuff is sooo complicated to set up and I just gave up… :laughing:
