Using Alternative Languages in the Enterprise

There are literally hundreds of programming languages but Java, C & C++ cover over 90% of all the code written on the servers in the investment banking world. It’s true to say that there’s virtually nothing you can’t do in these languages but it doesn’t stop enthusiastic “alternative language groupies” telling us there’s a better way and that we should all change what we’re doing: Ruby, Clojure, Scala, Haskell, Erlang to name just a few.

There is something we can learn from these languages without having to become an expert. This talk walks through some existing production architectures looking at how some of the languages have changed the way we work.
