Abstract: In recent years, the Java community has embraced a variety of new languages that target the JVM, but also offer productivity advantages over traditional Java coding.
One of the most interesting of these languages is Clojure, a “Lisp unconstrained by backward compatibility.” In this talk, you will see why Clojure deserves serious consideration as the next big JVM language.
Rich Hickey is the creator of the Clojure programming language.
Stuart Halloway is the CEO of Relevance, Inc., where he helps companies adopt agile practices, as well as innovative technologies such as Clojure and Ruby on Rails. Stuart is a noted author of several excellent technical books the latest of which is Programming Clojure.
Stuart and Rich are teaching a Clojure class in Reston, May 12-14.
