IN/Clojure 2020 is the 4th edition of India’s annual Clojure and ClojureScript conference. Follow twitter.com/in_clojure for updates.

Backstory

We began in Pune in 2016 and after two editions in namma Bengaluru, we’re delighted to come full circle back to apla Pune (and all those delicious bakarwadis and modaks).

As India’s premiere Clojure and ClojureScript conference, we strive to facilitate the free exchange of ideas between new and experienced programmers alike.

Over the years, IN/Clojure has served as a platform to kickstart a series of Clojure workshops and meet-ups across the country. And it has helped attendees make a strong case for Clojure, and Clojurescript adoption in their companies.

We believe that this edition of the conference, like previous editions will foster the growing Clojure community in Asia.

Who should attend?

Whether you are knee-deep writing macros that write macros, or struggling to escape the beginner’s plateau, or wondering if/why/how to adopt Clojure in your organization, or are in it purely for the joy of learning, IN/Clojure is the event bringing together a great mix of Clojure/Script masters, practitioners, and newcomers from across India and beyond.

Why Attend?

We welcome you to join nearly 149 other people and…

  • Speak: CFP is open till 20 Jan 2020.
  • Learn: We run two all-day hands-on Clojure workshops. Check ‘em out here.
  • Converse: Derive some sweet cerebral expansion from the talks, the tweetstorms, and the “hallway tracks”.
  • Inspire: Trade notes, ideas, tools, and techniques with new and experienced Clojure programmers alike (photostream).
  • Be Inspired : Start that project, that meetup, that hack night, that business, that beautiful work of art.
  • Sponsor: Help foster the growing Clojure and FP community in India/Asia.
  • Network: Meet seasoned practitioners and awesome sponsors (listed below). Hire or get hired. Acquire or get acquired ;-)
  • Grab: Some cool swag, and some fun swag, and some zany swag.
  • Party: Eat, drink, and make merry with some of the nicest people around.

Plus, this year we enjoy the company of the perennially effervescent Bozhidar Batsov; prolific Clojurist, Emacs fanatic, maintainer of CIDER, and Lisp hacker extraordinaire.

(Oh, and tickets are going, going, going… grab yours while stocks last.)

Why speak at IN/Clojure?

Over the years, IN/Clojure has served as a platform to kickstart a series of Clojure workshops and meet-ups across the country. And, it has helped attendees make a strong case for Clojure and Clojurescript adoption in their companies.

By sharing your ideas, experiences, and knowledge, you too can help foster the growing Clojure community in India, and also add to the global body of Clojure know-how.

And it’s a mighty fine opportunity to meet other Clojurists from across the world, and to meet companies that are using Clojure to solve business problems at scale.

Who should propose a talk?

You can submit a talk regardless of your experience level with Clojure; all perspectives matter.

IN/Clojure’s primary focus is the free exchange of ideas between new and experienced Clojure programmers alike.

You should especially propose a talk, if you’ve been programming Clojure and/or Clojurescript professionally but believe you have nothing to say. Well, you do, or your team does! Think, ideate, submit a proposal!

What to propose?

We’re looking for submissions on a wide range of topics.

  • You did something cool with Clojure lately? We want to hear from you!
  • Maybe you learnt Clojure on weekends and built a small game in ClojureScript? Write in!
  • Maybe you rewrote your old Java, or Go application in Clojure. Tell us all about it.
  • Maybe you rewrote your Clojure application in another language. Well, we want to hear about that too!
  • Maybe you taught Clojure to your friends, and there were some interesting aha! moments you want to talk about? Write in!
  • If you built a wrapper library, a terminal game, a scraper spider, a crud generator, a tflops number cruncher, a distributed messaging platform, or a deep learning thingamajig, yes, you should submit a talk!

How it works

Process

  • You submit a proposal in our public call for proposals system.
  • You may propose one or more talks fitting these length criteria:
    • Full Talks will be 40 mins long, including 5 mins of Q & A.
    • Crisp Talks will be 20 mins long, including 5 mins of Q & A.
    • Lightning Talks will be 10 mins long, with Q & A in the hallways :-)
  • Our selection committee of experts will review and select talks, to help us curate an inclusive and diverse forum.
  • Talk selections are in these phases:
    • DONE: Select up to two “Full” talks by 01 Jan 2020 (see list of proposals).
    • INPROGRESS: Select more talks incrementally, while slots last.
    • CLOSE CFP: to new submissions on 20 Jan 2020 (extended from 01 Jan 2020).
    • Compelling proposals are likely to be selected prior to CFP close, at the selection committee’s discretion.
    • We aim to schedule up to 4 Full talks, 3 Crisp talks, and 3 Lightning talks, or some permutation thereof.
  • Once selected, our team will coordinate with you for travel and stay arrangements.
  • And we will work with you to help you tune and/or polish your content.

Selection philosophy

The smallness of the Clojure ecosystem in India makes it very likely that a subset of the organising team, panelists, and potential speakers are also professionally affiliated with some conference sponsors.

This does not negatively influence talk selection. Quite the opposite, it makes us especially mindful of selection bias, and we keep each other in check. In other words, IN/Clojure is not “pay to play”. Sponsors do not get special preference, and friends do not get to cut in line.

Additionally, our conference code of conduct naturally applies to the conduct of the talk selection process as well.

To exist, IN/Clojure fundamentally relies on the good sense and kindness of involved people, and the community at large. Please do write to team@inclojure.org for questions and clarifications.

Speaker reimbursement

All talk proposers receive a free conference day pass, irrespective of selection status.

For speakers whose submissions are accepted, IN/Clojure will reimburse economy-class travel costs:

  • For international travel – up to INR 80K (approx. USD 1200)
  • For domestic travel – up to INR 15K

And we will provide up to 2 nights / 3 days of stay to cover your time at the conference.

See other talks listed on this page, and submit yours today!

From Lazy Lisper to Confident Clojurist

Polylith + Component = The Grand Design

The core philosophy of Clojure and its ecosystem is Simplicity. But when we need to build large scale system of decent amount of complexity and components, we need to ponder over many best practices like maintainability, code deduplication, unit testing, integration testing, separation of concern, third-party integration etc. In this session we are going to discuss in-and-out about relatively new… more

The Future of Clojure Tooling

Ah, the future! Such an exciting topic! It’s always a lot of fun to speculate on what will follow next, isn’t it? You know what’s twice as exciting (at least for programmers) - discussing the future of Clojure development tools, those underappreciated workhorses that make our lives hacking with Clojure easier, more fun and more productive. more

The power of meta

Programs are read by Humans and run by Machines. Machines care only about correctness and performance of the program, nothing else. However, to humans, Readability and Reasonability of the programs matter the most, beyond just correctness and performance. Developers are not just consuming programs in parts, but also as a whole within a system. Therefore, code volume, function names, programming l… more

Light Table: The strange and wonderful saga of a pure Clojure editor.

On a beautiful spring day in 2012, Chris Granger showed a new concept of an IDE which was simple like an editor but, was full-fledged like IDE. This was way before VSCode and Atom, it showed what Clojure/Script can do with less code and was a preferred editor for people coming to Clojure/Script ecosystem for many years. Now, the time has changed and Chris left the project and so did, other core d… more
