Taming Polyglot Development using Docker

A session at swampUP 2017

Thursday 25th May, 2017

3:50pm to 4:35pm (PST)

There is a lot of buzz around polyglot development, and with good reason. Polyglot, especially when coupled with microservices, enables developers to build services faster while using the best tools for the job. But how do you enable new technologies when your organization already relies on proven infrastructure? How do you provide language-native tooling for polyglot developers without reinventing the wheel every time?

In this talk we’ll learn about the journey Netflix made while transitioning from being predominantly JVM-based to fully embracing polyglot, and the lessons we learned in the process. We’ll show how we were able to leverage much of our existing infrastructure while maintaining (near) native ergonomics, and how Docker was used to tie everything together.
