London Riak Meetup Message Board › Tech Mesh- the Alternative Programming Conference London 2012, 4th - 6th Dec
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.
· 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 keynot
· Haskell: practical as well as cool In another premiere, 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.
· 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
