One of the most popular posts on our blog in recent history is Michael Nygard's post "Three Book Ideas". The enthusiastic reaction to that post combined with the many interesting conversations I've had with Mike in the past told me it was past time to have Mike on the show. We talked about his "Three Book Ideas" post, physics, the nature of relational data, and a plethora of other interesting topics. I enjoyed it, and I thank him for spending the time with me! I hope you'll enjoy it, too.
While I've got your attention, I'd also like to mention a few things:
- Clojure/conj registration is open! Head on over to clojure-conj.org to get ticket information.
- We will be offering 3 days of Clojure-related training just prior to the conference, with one day each of ClojureScript, Pedestal, and Datomic.
- We are pleased to announce that the Scheme and Functional Programming Conference will be co-located with the Conj this year on Wednesday, November 13.
- Lambda Jam Chicago is happening July 8-10, 2013. Stuart Sierra will be there speaking about Data, Visibility & Abstraction. The conference is being put on by our good friend Alex Miller, who has been kind enough to give us the offer code RELPOD, good for a $50 discount off your ticket. Go to http://regonline.com/lambdajam2013 to redeem it!
You can send feedback about the show to firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave a comment here on the blog. Thanks for listening!
Our Guest, Michael Nygard
Michael chose "Rhapsody in Blue" by Gershwin as the intro, and "Fourth Movement, Beethoven's Fifth Symphony" by Gustavo Dudamel and the Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela to end the show.
