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
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.
