How I fell in love with a programming language

The modern programming languages like Kotlin, Swift, Dart, Rust are good but the problem is they all are converging to the same language. For example, Java just got the closures; ES6 is getting classes; Swift has just taken differ from Go; Rust got algebric types; Kotlin is going to have asyc and await and Dart borrows them from c#. There is nothing 'new' or 'innovating' in anyone. If you see some other languages like Scala or Go — they are very different to program with yet they have perfect combination of own shaped concepts and have clear vision for innovating. That’s what I found disappointing with not only Kotlin but all these morden programming languages. YMMV.
