Java and dynamic languages get-together

Advertisements

Tim Bray (who now works for Sun), reports on an interesting get-together to talk about bringing Java and the dynamic languages (Perl, Python, et al) closer together. Intriguing.

Even if Sun didn’t approve of other languages on the Java platform, they’d happen anyhow. I approve, and when I started going around Sun asking, it turned out that everyone I asked did too. So I asked Graham Hamilton, who’s kind of at the centre of the Java universe, if he thought it would be a good idea to bring in a roomful of dynamic-language experts to help us figure out how Java could be made a better home.
