Inside the Emerging Languages Track at JavaOne

New app development languages are coming out fast. As improvements continue in the Java Development Kit (JDK), developers can have new levels of productivity with the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). The JVM supports both dynamically typed languages, which focus on application customization, and statically typed general-purpose languages, which focus on application development. Through this track, you’ll learn more about some of the most used languages that can harness the power of JVM. Some languages covered in this track include Ceylon, Clojure, Groovy, JavaScript, JRuby, Kotlin, and Scala.

In JDK 9, the Nashorn feature is better and brighter than before. If you use JavaScript, you'll want to take advantage of Nashorn to use the Java stack and still have the opportunity to use your favorite language. If you use Java, you want to work with JavaScript during dynamic coding situations, like configuration management and query composition. Combine the power of JavaScript and Java together at “Nashorn: What’s New in JDK 9” and learn about new features of JDK 9 and the Nashorn platform. Another similar session that covers Nashorn is “Fun Things to Do with Nashorn in Java 9.” This session specifically focuses on Nashorn’s new upgrades, and how you can put these to use.  

As a Java developer, you must know many different languages in order to be successful. From implementing software in Java and Kotlin, to constructing build pipelines with a Groovy DSL or JSON, the languages used with Java are endless! In this code-intense, polyglot session explore the modern era of software development. Go to “Polyglot Adventures for the Modern Java Developer” at JavaOne for more fun.

Explore Eve at JavaOne, a programming language that decreases the complication of software development by treating everything as a record you read and write. With interesting design choices, the entire Eve platform is reactive and transparent for introspection. Eve gives an alternative solution for the typical use cases in software development. Learn more about Eve at “If Everything Were a Database.”

With more sessions from other Java filled tracks, the possibilities to learn at JavaOne are endless! If you haven’t registered yet, it’s not too late to sign up. Register now for JavaOne and save $200 off the onsite price until September 29th
