RAFFLE: 1x Ticket to Tech Mesh: The Alternative Programming Conference

We have been generously offered a ticket to Tech Mesh: The Alternative Programming Conference to raffle to one lucky LJC member. The winner will be picked at random on Monday 26th November.

To enter simply RSVP to this event and complete the questions.

Information from the organisers:

Check out Tech Mesh - The Alternative Programming Conference. The event is designed to support and promote useful non-mainstream technologies in the software industry and will bring together users and inventors of various languages and technologies. It takes place in London, between the 4th and 6th of December 2012.

The conference idea was born from the growing awareness among IT architects, software developers and project managers that often a less known solution is "the right tool for the job".

Talk topics will include alternative solutions adopted by established companies such as Facebook, the Standard Chartered Bank or Credit Suisse. Over 50 speakers will be giving talks on Erlang, OTP, Scala, Akka, Raspberry Pi, F#, Haskell, Go, OCaml and much more. See the full schedule here: http://techmeshconf.com/techmesh-london-2012/schedule/index.jsp.

Topics Include:

- The Language of the system - What roles emergent languages play in the system as a whole, their characteristics, and the choices involved. 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

- From Java to Erlang Thinking: From designing systems in Java to designing in Erlang. Kresten Krab Thorup is the chief architect and co-founder of EOS Trifork, a vendor of J2EE compatible application servers.

- Faith, Evolution, and Programming Languages: from Haskell to Java - Philip Wadler offers a historical perspective on the development of programming languages, considering the roles of faith and evolution

- Haskell: practical as well as cool - Co-inventors of Haskell Simon Peyton Jones, Philip Wadler and John Hughes will talk together about three distinctive aspects of Haskell that might make it worth the bother.

- 183 Years of Programming - For the first time in history, co-inventors of Erlang Joe Armstrong, Robert Virding and Mike Williams will be sharing their experience in a joint keynote
