Day 1 of CodeMash 2016 I attended the full day workshop presented by Amber Conville (@crebma) called 7 Languages in 7 Hours. The languages used were Ruby, Rust, Go, Elixir, Clojure, Haskell, and Scala. I am familiar with Ruby but the other 6 were completely new to me.
To get a feel for solving a non-trivial problem with the languages we completed the Prime Factors Kata with each one. Although you can’t go too deep into a language in 1 hour, I was able to get a sense of the syntax and make some initial observations.
