Why is Scala more scalable than other languages?
The Wikipedia page on Scala says:
The name Scala is a portmanteau of "scalable" and "language", signifying that it is designed to grow with the demands of its users.
I've also read that:
And that's Scala's dirty little secret. Scala is only scalable in the sense that it runs on the reliable, high-performing JVM platform.
and also that "languages don't scale, platforms scale."
How does Scala grow with demands of its users? Isn't it true to say that Scala "actually is scalable"? And as per line just above, isn't every language scalable?
