Are you intimidated by conversations where terms like “dynamic typing” and “imperative languages” are thrown around? Do you consider yourself a rockstar coder, but lack confidence when it comes to behind the scenes operations of compilers, interpreters and programming languages? This session decodes the jargon used to describe programming language principles and practices. You will learn how to intelligently compare and contrast languages, a power that you can wield to choose the best language for your project, level up your interview game, or simply dominate the language superiority flame wars. The choice is yours.
