Description: QCon New York



Dear members of NYC HTML5 & JavaScript Hackfest –


QCon, the practitioner-driven conference designed for people who influence innovation in their teams: team leads, architects, project managers, engineering directors is holding their first QCon in New York the week of June 18 and is extending a special discount to our members.

  • QCon is a full 3-day conference that takes place from June 18 - 20 (Mon - Wed) at the Marriott Brooklyn Bridge.
  • There are two additional days of full & half day tutorials on Thursday, Jun 21 and Friday, June 22.
  • The conference features over 100 speakers in 6 concurrent tracks daily and covers the most timely and innovative topics that drive the evolution of enterprise software development today.

The NYC JavaScript & HTML5 members can receive a $100 discount off the current early-bird discount by using the following code:javascriptug when registering on the QCon website.

For a taste of the types of sessions at QCon, check out the following talks:

Functional Domain Models - Declarative, Compositional and You get Some Parallelism for Free 
Debasish Ghosh, Author of "DSLs In Action"

In this talk Debasish will discuss simple functional abstractions like Applicative Functors, Semigroups and Monoids that help you compose larger domain models out of smaller ones. The main focus will be to demonstrate how we abstract away accidental complexity out of client APIs by using algebraic techniques at the implementation layer. This leads to declarative API design that expresses the domain logic clearly and succinctly.

The Database as a Value 
Rich Hickey, Creator of Clojure

In this talk we will examine how Datomic renders the database into that most prized and easy-to-reason-about construct, a value, and makes it available to multiple processes in multiple languages, functional and not. Along the way, we'll discuss the importance of immutability and time in representing information, the reification of process, and the mechanisms of durable persistent data structures. No knowledge of functional programming is required.

QCon speakers are practioners who share real world solutions. Some of this year's 100 speakers include:
