It’s a well known fact that Java’s prevalence in
the software development industry is encouraged by the innovation that
surrounds the JVM, and the languages that are built on top of it.
Today I’d like to start a poll on what alternate languages you use (or would like to use!) on the JVM. A recent poll on this same topic gave Clojure the edge. I expected to see Scala as the leader in these polls, so maybe things are changing?
Because there are so many languages on the JVM, I’m sure I’ve left one out. If that’s the case, let me know in the comments and I’ll add it in.
