In Indian classical music, we have Jugalbandi, where two lead musicians or vocalist engage in a playful competition. There is jugalbandi between Flutist and a Percussionist (say using Tabla as the instrument). Compositions rendered by flutist will be heard by the percussionist and will replay the same notes, but now on Tabla and vice-versa is also possible.

In a similar way, we will perform Code Jugalbandi to see how the solution looks using different programming languages and paradigms.

During the session, Dhaval and Ryan will take turns at coding the same problem using different languages and paradigms. There would be multiple such rounds during the Jugalbandi.

Our hope is that via a Code Jugalbandi session:

* People programming in different paradigms - imperative or functional, can see how each language solves the same thing differently.
* Promote learning by comparison and contrast - a natural way for human mind to grasp new things.
* It can also become a source of inspiration to try out a new languages and paradigms.
* Would give people confidence that being polyglot can be within their reach.
