99 Languages and Java Ain’t One

If you’re having Java problems, this session’s speakers feel bad for you. You know the popular JVM languages, and maybe you’ve even tried them. But are you a black belt in Judo? Tried a hot cup of Ceylon? Looked in the Mirah? Welcomed back Kotlin? There are more than 250 languages on the JVM, and the handful you know is just the beginning.

This session takes a rapid, entertaining look at all the lesser-known JVM languages. All of them? Yes, all of them. The presentation spends more time on languages in active use and then quicken the pace in a survey of as many JVM languages as possible. If you’ve programmed in it, there’s a JVM version of it, and you’ll see it in this session.
