When working in Perl I tend to solve every problem with a Perl-shaped hammer. When working in Javascript, every problem looks like a Javascript-shaped hammer. And so on. Getting back to thinking about the problem first, and the implementation second, is a difficult mind shift.

So I set about re-writing the same code in each of the 16 different languages in which I’ve professionally developed. (The code is inspired by Ada Lovelace’s calculator for Bernoulli numbers) This talk will take you on that journey of discovery highlighting many ideas to expand your own thought processes.
