Going Polyglot the Easy Way

What do Clojure, Java, Scala, and Ruby all have in common? They all can run on
the JVM. Today going polyglot is easier then ever!

In this talk we're going to learn why it's important to use the best programming
language for the job and how to start doing so. By using the polyglot approach,
your projects will be more flexible to change, simpler to test, easier to deploy,
and understandable to developers with any programming background.

Simple actions you can take to increase the versatility of your programming
toolbox and finally get paid for writing code in your latest beloved language.
