This was a pretty neat video about the top languages and how they became popular.
Funny he didn’t mention the “killer app” of Kotlin on Android. I expect Kotlin multiplatform will be a compelling killer app as well.

But Kotlin isn’t purely functional. There are OO and functional traits but the average program of a fresh Java-convert is probably not more functional than a Java8-programm. (Though Kotlin surely is a slippery slope to functional programming 😅, but it takes time. The next step for me would be to learn the Arror lib… but first coroutines!)

thanks for sharing, I wish there was a website where people can recommend must watch technical videos. Most are ok, but there a few which I think are must watch.

A pure functional language will take longer to master, and ultimately will end up being used by an elite few.

painful to watch
45 minutes of self-justification and oop bashing
at a fp conference, that’s not a huge risk
i recommend avoiding watching it and do something useful instead
which can be anything in comparison to this trash
