    Polyglot Programming as a technique is not new and as a paradigm was coined in 2006 by Neal Ford. In today's world, we often architect solutions which need to be highly scalable, secure, efficient, have an engaging GUI, be extensible with low technical debt in parts or whole. To work with a single tech stack promotes a sense of mono culture which is detrimental and limiting the way a solution can be designed. Moreover, with multi-core machines available, processing now can leverage parallel processing and it maybe make more sense to use a language which takes away the overhead of the intricacies of multi-thread programming.

    In other words, in many cases, engaging in Polyglot Programming helps you focus more on the domain and adds to developer productivity.

    On the flip side, increasing the moving parts also means that if not designed well, Polyglot Programming could be a double edged sword and produce more mess in the way different pieces interact with each other.

    In this talk, we will showcase an ecosystem we built, involving a desktop device configuration backed, an OS-agnostic desktop GUI, a cloud service, a cloud cluster configuration tool and how we used the Agile principles, namely TDD, Continuous Integration and the works to be able to keep the polyglot ecosystem sane.

    Name wise, the languages/tools/etc which we used in our Polyglot case – Google Go, Node-Webkit, JS (Knockout/RequireJS), Ruby, Cucumber, RIAK, Chef, Lisp, Jenkins
