Speaker: Anders Janmyr, Jayway
Anders Janmyr is a programmer who values design in the small as much as design in the large. My leading star in software development has always been "Don't Repeat Yourself", and my loathe for duplication has led me away from Java into languages such as Lisp and Ruby. I'm the author of a number of articles on design.
Seminar: Alternative Languages for the Java Virtual Machine
Level: In-depth
Closures, extension methods, list comprehensions, macros and continuations are just some of the features that could have been part of the Java language but are not. They are however available on the Java platform in the multitude of languages that are implemented on the JVM.

This talk presents a selection of these languages, their pros and cons, and suggestions of why, when and how to use them.
