    In addition to Structured Query Language(SQL), we can also use a variety of different programming languages, such as Python, Java, JavaScript, R, Julia, Scala, or any other programming language as long as it supports a basic database connection and functions to perform all of those operations, to connect to databases and perform more advanced query operations on the data. This gives us greater flexibility and allows us to apply custom-created logic to the data.

    Based on Lambda Calculus, developed by Alonzo Church in the 1930s, functional programming has been implemented in mainstream programming languages like JavaScript, Python and Java. Programming languages like Erlang, Haskell or Scala are better suited for functional programming as they are designed to be functional first.

    Tapir is a Scala framework. (which runs on the JDK) Since the recent release of version 1.0, it's become my go to for many projects. It doens't provide much in the way of integrations with 3rd party frameworks, but I actually prefer that. It does autogenerate great swagger docs though.

    It already 99% worked. We just needed to upgrade ASM to a version that recognizes JDK 19 bytecode, so the optimizer (which most people don't even use) can function on JDK 19. The PR was https://github.com/scala/scala/pull/10001 — eazy peazy.

    I took a look at some Haskell; like I said, I never actually learned it, but I have seen some. And I briefly dipped my toes in Scala awhile back, and it seemed like a good thing. And then came the Phoenix web framework drawing heavily on the general concepts of Rails but with the slightly different philosophy of making things more explicit rather than the infamous Rails magic, which is so helpful when you're doing things the Rails way. But if you try to fight it at all, no, no, no, that magic is a plus-five sword against you. [laughter]

    It's not that I'm forced directly, but, well, there is a reason why Android apps are in very big part done in Java and Kotlin. The Android virtual machine, ARM, is not 100% compatible with standard JDK - and it looks like a deliberate decision that Google didn't put effort into making it compatible. With this in place - and with Kotlin being the one language backed up by Google for writing apps on Android - if you use anything else, you may run into some problems sooner or later. They are not unfixable, but it is an uphill battle, while in the same time everywhere you turn you will find comments along the lines of "why bother, just switch to Kotlin". And since Google is so big, this pressure is big enough to demotivate people from working on other solutions. Instead, they work on solutions supported by Google. Which creates an avalanche effect - it gets even easier to work in what Google backs up, and even harder to work in something else.
