Languages of Infra Panel: Bash to Ruby to Go to Rust

When we think of infrastructure, it's natural to think of shell scripts, but over the past few decades, there have been successive waves of newer languages being used to write and run infrastructure software. Ruby held the crown for a while, but then many things that started out in Ruby got rewritten in Go. More recently Rust has started to become the language of choice for new infrastructure projects.    

This panel will pull together experts from across the language landscape to discuss what they see as the benefits and compromises of different choices. As an audience member, you can expect to hear about where to learn more, and have the chance to ask the panel questions.
