— I have ported like 20K lines of PHP myself, multiple projects


Even though JS doesn't really have a full class system, IMO it's better than the C-mockery that is PHP OOP...

— So, I often find that after porting a project to JS, I really get the urge to abandon the PHP side since none of the improvements I made on the JS side will work in PHP

— It's not hard to like any language over PHP

— My first programming language ever ;)

— Same, I'm glad I switched... Although I feel another switch coming on

— But I know not to what

— I have some requirements for my next language

— It has to be pure functional

— I haven't decided on static / dynamic typing yet

— So my two contestants are:
Static: Idris (May choose Haskell because Idris is a pain to install correctly)
Dynamic: Clojure
