Christian Hujer will be sharing his experience regarding Java and Go projects. We're comparing Golang 1.12 and Java 12 (yes, you read it right! JAVA 12!) with respect to various types of projects, ranging from small command-line utilities to enterprise services.

Topics that will be covered:
• Error handling
• Tags/Annotations
• Documentation
• HTTP client and server
• Entity/View/Model mapping (BSON, JSON, XML, YAML)
• Enterprise XML (DOM, XSLT, SOAP)
• Build times, turn-around times
• Testing, Code Coverage, TDD, BDD, Selenium
• Idiomatic Go vs Idiomatic Java
• What Go and Java can learn from each other
• Miscellaneous

Spoiler Alert! There is no clear winner in this battle. Whether Go or Java is the better choice depends on the situation. However, this talk may help you with decision-making for new projects to understand the pros and cons in various situations.
