Weekly Poll: In a World where Java was no more. . .

· Java Zone

Microservices! They are everywhere, or at least, the term is. When should you use a microservice architecture? What factors should be considered when making that decision? Do the benefits outweigh the costs? Why is everyone so excited about them, anyway?  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.

Java is the bread and butter of many programmers on DZone. We don't think that a bakery strike would lead to mass starvation, though. We'd find something else to eat. The question for this week is, if the bakeries were all gone, what would you eat?

Or, in plainer terms, In a World where Java was no more, what programming language would you use for your everyday programming tasks? I know that we each select the language that is the best fit for the project at hand. I know that the average DZone developer knows roughly 5 programming languages, in most cases for that very purpose. What we're all wondering is... what would be your go-to language for your particular everyday programming needs?
