Learn Java to Become Polyglot and Display Everywhere!

Java developers are used to the best tooling (offered by a heavily competitive IDE market) that belongs to completely different league than anything browser vendors can offer (think about refactorings, correct code completion, etc. in Java vs. the fuzziness offered by JavaScript).

Everybody should be allowed to choose the most suitable language for a task. Every Java developer should have the right to use Java everywhere!

In this talk we'll demonstrate how to write once (in Java) and run/display everywhere and how to smoothly communicate between Java, JavaScript and other languages from the polyglot world.
