With Scala you feel smart having just got something to work in a beautiful way but when you look around the room to tell your clojure colleague how clever you are, you notice he left 3 hours ago and there is a post-it saying use a Map.

I will trade my Java job for your Scala job if it's possible.

It seems fairly obvious that this developer's gripes were mostly centered around his incompetence and ignorance rather than a deficiency in Scala itself. For example, the claim that it took a minute and twenty seconds to run tests is just ridiculous unless he's on a 286 machine. I work in Scala projects with hundreds of thousands of lines of code and run tests incredibly frequently. I would never get anything done if it took even a fraction of that time to build and run my tests.
