21 April 2023
What a week! I’m not sure if it seems busier because are we in the pre-Conj release crush or if I’m imagining it, but lots of stuff is happening (and I sense we aren’t done with big announcements before Conj yet).
Speaking of the Conj, it’s next week! If you want to be there in person Apr 27-28 in Durham, NC or streaming online, tickets are still available. I can’t wait to see all of you again for the first time in too long. Plus, a new Rich Hickey talk, wonder what that will include?
And if you like in-person conferences but are in Europe, Babashka Conf was announced this week for June 10th in Berlin! Maybe you’ll bb there?
Lots of other announcements and cool links below, too many to highlight here, check them all out….
