Mastering only one back-end programming language is not a good idea. You will miss a lot of knowledge and inspiration coming from another language and you are more vulnerable in a rapidly changing employment market. But what if you are not working in fast multi project environment and you are bound to a small number brown field applications with a single back-end language – no matter if it is PHP or any other programming language? Reworking the whole project with the new shiny programming language? – Good luck when asking management! Using microservices? Really?
In my session I will show different ways to integrate a second programming language to your application, from nano services over messaging and creepy Iframes to apparently seamless integrated websites; not matter if you are targeting request/response or single page applications.
