Adam Tornhill ( will be presenting:
"Betting your company on Lisp: 5 years with Clojure in production"
Functional Programming is sold as a silver bullet, yet many
organizations lack real-world experience with the paradigm at
scale. How well does functional programming work in practice? What
happens when you bet your company on a functional programming language like Clojure? In this talk, Adam shares his experience from building the CodeScene tool and how the FP hype transferred into real
productivity gains and cheaper maintenance.
Adam Tornhill is a programmer who combines degrees in engineering and
psychology. He’s the founder of CodeScene, the leading Software
Engineering Intelligence tool. Adam is also the author of multiple
technical books, including the best-selling Your Code as a Crime
Scene. Adam’s other interests include modern history, music, retro
computing, and martial arts.
