I often spend a lot of time talking to new software development graduates at Xero about the benefits of the mighty language C# and despite my absolute enthusiasm and excitement for this brilliant language which has delivered us such treasures such as LINQ, I often find the standard response “But Dominic we use Java at Uni and it’s really cool”. While this is not a great response, I have to accept that most Universities (In Australia) teach mostly either Java or Python.

Nice and simple and will only take you a short time to get a sample multi-lingual app working.
