    1. Why does it matter?
    2. What is your definition of hard? A difficult syntax?

    There are way too many to even try to list. Everyone has made a language, these days.

    One answer might be Befunge.

    Here's some example code:

    I'd argue assembly is pretty difficult to build anything useful in. I know enough to do add and subtract and store to registers, that's about it.

    Binary being even tougher. :)

    Anyways, there are way too many answers.

    Malbolge
    "Malbolge was so difficult to understand when it arrived that it took two years for the first Malbolge program to appear. Indeed, the author himself has never written a single Malbolge program. The first program was not written by a human being: it was generated by a beam search algorithm designed by Andrew Cooke and implemented in Lisp."

    here is your "Hello World!" program in Malbolge
    Code:
     ('&%:9]!~}|z2Vxwv-,POqponl$Hjig%eB@@>}=<M:9wv6WsU2T|nm-,jcL(I&%$#"
     `CB]V?Tx<uVtT`Rpo3NlF.Jh++FdbCBA@?]!~|4XzyTT43Qsqq(Lnmkj"Fhg${z@>

    I would define the "hardest programming language" as the programming language you are the worst at. The question is really irrelevant though.

    So it took 2 years for "Hello World" to be coded by a computer?

    That's a freaking stupid language.

    Brainfuck for a non serious yet turing complete language. For a serious language Haskell is the hardest for me.

    For a serious language, the hardest ones for intermediate programmers are probably functional languages like OCaml and Haskell, just because you think about the programs in a different way.

    Nothing is hard. I think hardest language is that you don't want to learn.
    You must have aim to learn and there is nothing hard. Start learning it'll be easier after a little time.

    Microcode.. "machine code" and "assembly" are just stack machines with special functions I reverse engineer millions of bytes of it and I'm not that great..

    C/C++ are hard to do a lot of code correctly in. Most people don't know what memory corruption is but swear they're good at those..

    For me, PHP is easiest of all

    C/C++ are hardest of all

    Assembly is hard... Scala is hard to master, if you want to write some proper nice algorithms.

    C++ isn't hard, you just dont have a lot of standard library features
    asm is hell
