IronWorker Goes Hyperpolyglot - Adds Java, Node and Go Support


A hyperpolyglot is one who can speak six or more languages fluently. The term was coined by the linguist Richard Hudson in 2003 and derives from the word "polyglot", meaning one who can speak multiple languages.

Today marks a major step forward for IronWorker as we've opened the platform to a wide array of new languages, vastly expanding the possibilities of what you can do with it. IronWorker aims to be a language-agnostic platform that lets developers use the language they are comfortable with and, with today's release, we've come a lot closer to achieving that goal.

New Languages

In the past we've been focused on a few specific languages: Ruby, PHP and Python. Now we've added a bunch of new officially supported languages:

  • Java and other JVM Languages, such as:
    • Scala
    • Clojure
    • Groovy
  • Node.js
  • Go
  • It's even possible to run more languages, but we'll leave that discussion for another day 

Check the links above for how to get started using those languages and we're always here to help so please ask us any questions or let us know if you are having any problems, we respond quickly.
