New Kids on the Backend Block

Track Description

Choosing a programming language is one of the most crucial decision when developing software - the choice can influence the way you and your team think about your problem domain and how you model it.

It can also be overwhelming, daunting or even impossible to understand all of the new backend programming languages coming up - almost as frequently as new JavaScript frameworks. We need to be aware of the languages topping the hype curve and focus on the ones that provide real functionality.

In this track, we help you step by step understand all of these new kids on the block and determine who has got the right stuff that you really want in your world.
