    Presentations

    For many years a large number of developers have found comfort in the Microsoft world. From the early days of COM through to the later years of .NET, these developers have managed to get by working within the realms of a single technology at a time. The idea of monoglot programming is no longer sustainable. No single runtime or language exists which can best solve every problem that developers face. .NET developers are realising that there is more to life and technology than .NET, and they ...

    Haskell and Erlang are childhood friends, now approaching their 20th birthdays. Both were born around 1990, with a common commitment to functional programming.  Although they have very different genealogies, and subsequent evolution paths, they are both gaining increasing mind-share as 2010 approaches.  In his talk, Simon will contrast the two languages, paying particular attention to types and concurrency. ...
