A few months ago I got my first project in #Scala and really enjoyed it, then I came across #Clojure and #Elixir, came back to Scala and tried `sbt test`. It made me wait 15 minutes to even start running the tests. Now I don’t even want to look at it.
Compared to Clojure and Elixir, Scala is a monster of a language. It’s better than Java though (for FP).
@vrcca Is this because it had to download all its dependencies? It's usually not that slow once you have a primed ivy cache.
