I am pretty opinionated in my choices:
#C - hail our Gods K&R
#Python - what I use at work and for scripts, very pleasant language
#Elixir - I am helping to write the Pleroma backend in it

Gave two chances to #haskell, it has failed me, now I consider it a meme

Hate #PHP and #Java. #JavaScript is bearable, but I try to stay away.

Developing in

#perl
#c++ #cxx
#java (android)
#swift (sometimes)

Trying to learn #haskell

Also trying to avoid #javascript

#developers of the fediverse, state your languages so we can connect!

When it comes to #programming languages, I look for these things:

- Has an easy-to-read syntax (no boilerplate code)
- Has an IDE/plugin for code completion, refactoring, and linting
- Has #metaprogramming capability so I can write code that reads like English.

I thus end up preferring transpiled languages. My favourites are: #Xtend (for #Java), #TypeScript (for #JavaScript), and #Nim (for #C). Also love #Ruby and enjoy #Python.
