Does the technology matter?

Methodology & Culture

Today we always argue about technologies. Java vs C#, Java vs Scala, Scala vs Kotlin, Java vs javascript, etc. These 'wars' are often becoming religious. We believe in some technology and blame another one. And being blind, we often forget about really important things. So this story is about a successful elimination of a bottleneck including switching from one 'good' language to a 'bad' one. We will discuss all the pros and cons of provided approach and try to answer the question "Does the technology matter".

Scheduled on Friday from 18:40 to 19:40 in Room 6
