Apache Tapestry Creator to Speak on Clojure, Tapestry 5

Bangalore, December 10, 2008: If you are a Java developer building web-based applications and tired of the countless frameworks that promise you a slick UI fast but fail to live up to their promise, then switch to Apache Tapestry to get more functionality with less code. The creator of Tapestry, Howard Lewis Ship, is coming this summer to India's biggest summit for the developer ecosystem - Great Indian Developer Summit (http://www.developersummit.com/) to speak on the recently released Tapestry 5.0 version, covering the core IoC container, how to define and inject services and advanced topics such as decorating services to provide additional concerns, or creating services in terms of design patterns such as chain-of-command and pipeline.

On April 25, the author of 'Tapestry in Action' will also conduct a 3-hour, hands on workshop on building your own Tapestry applications. Hew will cover what it means to be a component web framework, what advantages that brings, how to create database-driven web applications using Hibernate, show off Tapestry's live class reloading, advanced error reporting and other productivity features, how Tapestry can be tuned and customized and build new components.

A frequent speaker at JavaOne, NoFluffJustStuff, ApacheCon Howard will also throw the spotlight on Clojure -- made up of one part Lisp (one of the oldest computer languages), one part Java (so young, yet so well adopted), a healthy serving of functional programming, and a state-of-the-art concurrency layer on top. Clojure embraces functional programming with immutable data types and first class functions. It is fully interoperable with Java. Clojure's approach to concurrency includes asynchonous Agents, and Software Transactional Memory.

Just a quibble, but this should probably have been posted in the Other Dialects forum. As near as I can tell, there is no CL content. Not a biggie, but let's please keep things organized according to topic. I appreciate the info, just asking for better organization. Thanks.
Cheers, Dave
