In a world where .Net, PHP and nodejs are also major players, all you really need is Java, JavaScript and the JVM.

In this session Paul will explore why he believes Java* should be your default choice for new project development, from the languages themselves and how they can work seamlessly together, to the tool chains which lend themselves naturally to agile development practices and on to the plethora of infrastructure options.

Of course Java* has its drawbacks too and he’ll look at a few of those and how some can be overcome.
