On polyglot programming and microservices.

Polyglot programming, whilst not a new concept, is becoming increasingly relevant to full-stack developers and to microservice architectures. That’s because it allows a developer to mix and match programming languages to suit their personal preference, expertise, or the functional requirements of the project.

ThoughtWorks Director and Software Architect  Neal Ford joins me and  David Brown in this episode as he discusses the benefits of polyglot programming, a phrase he originated himself. He also shares how developers can use this practice in making application development more efficient, and how the concept of low-code is relevant in all of this.


Kevin Montalbo: In a developer profile survey conducted by Stack Overflow this year, 55% of the respondents identified themselves as full-stack developers. This represents a 7% increase over the last two years alone. It’s apparent that developers are becoming proficient in more programming languages or are using technology stacks that cross the boundary of both frontend and backend development.

Today on Cocktails we discuss polyglot programming with the person who originated the phrase itself. We learn how polyglot enables a developer to express his or her creativity, how it is a natural fit for microservices, and where low-code fits into all of this.

Hello internet, my name is Kevin Montalbo. Welcome to another episode of Coding Over Cocktails.
