Like many great conference, the story of the 2011 Conj wasn’t limited to the regularly scheduled program. In fact, some of the most meaningful conversations and demoes occurred in between talks and after hours. In this post I’ll discuss some of the interesting side discussions that I participated in or heard of secondhand.
Read the whole thing.
I’ll add a comment of my own: The Friedman and Byrd special session on cKanren was a big hit. David Nolen deserves some Karma points for inviting them to the conference. Their work is in Scheme, but maybe they’ll think about Clojure in the future. David has ported miniKanren to Clojure (as core.logic), and he plans to do port some of the constraint work from cKanren to core.logic in the future.
