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

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.
