JavaOne Track Highlights: Emerging Languages

By David Lopez

The JavaOne Content Catalog is live and full of hundreds of great sessions, which, admittedly, can seem a bit overwhelming. With so many sessions, where do you start looking? Well, the best place to start is with an understanding of the tracks being offered at this year’s conference. Each track tackles a different side of the Java technologies, and this is the third post in a series explaining the different tracks featured at this year’s JavaOne conference and what they have to offer. Last week, we looked at the Java and Security track. Today, let’s look at the Emerging Languages track and a few featured sessions. 

The Emerging Languages track focuses on new ways to get the most use out of the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). With information on dynamically and statically typed languages, including Ceylon, Clojure, Groovy, JavaScript, JRuby, Kotlin, and Scala, this track will show you the best ways to utilize the power of new languages coupled with the JVM. For example, Daryl Maien is hosting a session called “Beyond the Coffee Cup: Leveraging Java Runtime Technologies for Polyglot.” In this session, the focus is on current research looking into polyglot runtimes. You’ll be able to learn about the latest tech in the move towards interoperability with Java Apps.

Also offered on the Emerging Languages track is “Porting C Extensions and Intimately Linked Libraries to the JVM.” In this session, Duncan MacGregor, a GE Staff Software Engineer, will walk through how GE moved its libraries over to the JVM. Focus will be on changing Virtual Machines and dealing with entire applications built with multiple languages. Another great session being offered on the Emerging Languages track at JavaOne is “Functional Programming: Writing Stateless Code in a Stateful World with Clojure.” Ever wondered how to make meaningful, stateless applications? Then be sure to check out this session to learn how to manage the state of functional programs with a demonstration of state management in Clojure applications. 

To check out more on this track, head over to the Content Catalog and filter by Emerging Languages. While you’re there, be sure to check out the hundreds of other great sessions and events at this year’s JavaOne Conference, and register while the Early Bird Discount is still in effect!
