I wasn't entirely sure what to expect going into this talk, but wanted to hear what Ben had to say about learning and using other tools and languages. He gave examples from his experience where other languages were useful to complete projects and gave pros and cons for incorporating other languages in projects. His live demo didn't start off great but he was able to pull it off and get the node demo working. I actually really liked seeing how he worked through a problem and resolved it because that is exactly one thing to figure out when using other languages.
Overall a good talk that I'd recommend giving again at user groups and conferences to help developers expand their skillset and branch out into other languages. Good talk!
