For a while I have looked at the schedule for the JAOO conference in Aarhus, Denmark this year, and thought: What a pity there is so little about functional programming. I mean, functional programming is really moving into the mainstream developer community these years as yet another (and very powerful) tool in our toolboxes. But that is not reflected in the schedule for JAOO, unfortunately.
There was one presentation of Scheme but the speaker (and I simply can’t remember his name, sorry) unfortunately cancelled. Fortress has been put on the schedule and I managed to get Robert Pickering to come and talk about F#. I also talked to Chris Smith and I am currently trying to persuade the conference organizers to put him on the schedule too. It is a bit late in the process but I am doing my very best!
So pack your tooth brushes and laptops and head for the nearest airport or train station. I look forward to meeting you at JAOO!
