London Haskell Message Board › Tech Mesh- the Alternative Programming Conference London 2012, 4th - 6th Dec
Hi! I wanted to draw your attention to Tech Mesh, the Alternative Programming Conference happening in London between the 4th and 6th of December. Focus is on Scala, Haskell, Erlang, Clojure and alongside other emerging, non mainstream technologies. With 8 tracks over two days, the lineup of speakers is amazing!
· Haskell: practical as well as cool - Co-inventors of Haskell Simon Peyton Jones, Philip Wadler and John Hughes will do a joint keynote about three distinctive aspects of Haskell that might make it worth the bother.
· 183 Years of Programming - Co-inventors of Erlang Joe Armstrong, Robert Virding and Mike Williams will be sharing their experience in a joint keynote
· The Database as a Value: Rethinking fundamentals of database architecture, in light of the principles of functional programming - Rich Hickey is the author of the Clojure programming language and designer of the Datomic database system
· Implementing Riak in Erlang Benefits and Challenges - The choice of using Erlang has resulted in both benefits and challenges to the Basho team and Riak community. Basho Technologies architect Steve Vinoski will tell you all about the process
