Every foreign language you learn makes you a little smarter, and even shapes the way you think. Dave Thomas, one of the founders of the Pragmatic Press, once said that a developer should learn a new programming language every year. In the upcoming book Seven Languages in Seven Weeks, Bruce takes this challenging advice to the extreme. The book, in progress, helps a developer solve a nontrivial problem in each of seven different programming languages, spanning four different programming paradigms. In this keynote, Bruce will take a light hearted look at capturing the character of a programming language in a few short pages.
