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 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.
