Inhoud: The principle of linguistic relativity holds that the structure of a language affects the ways in which its respective speakers conceptualize their world. Linguistic relativity could be the basis of the adagium, found in the pragmatic programmer, to learn a new programming language every year.

But learning a new language does not mean you have to leave the fine embrace of the Java platform. The Java Virtual Machine is has become a platform for a lot of language. In this ISKA we will talk a look at the JVM, which languages can be run on it. We will provide a detailed overview of two languages in particular: Scala and Clojure.
