Difference between the Java and JavaScript developer experience?

This question was asked in our recent Akka Serverless developer workshop, and answered by Leon Stigter, Principal Product Manager for Akka Serverless:

Q: What is the difference between the Java and JavaScript developer experience?

A: There isn’t a big difference between the two languages in functionality. When designing the SDKs we really wanted to make sure that the SDKs feel very idiomatic to the developers using them, so certain ways of working are different in Java than in JavaScript (like factory patterns which are very common in Java, but not really in JavaScript). Functionality and support wise, both are the same!
