Lang.NEXT 2014

  • 835 Market St. Suite 700 in the San Francisco Centre (Westfield Centre) San Francisco, CA, USA
  • May 29 - 30, 2014
  • Speakers at Lang.NEXT 2014

Lang.NEXT is a cross-industry,, grass roots conference focused on what's trending in programming languages. It occurs every couple of years and is primarily sponsored by Microsoft. We bring together a broad range of language experts as speakers as well as audience. The goal is to have a lively and intense exchange of ideas, straddling the usual barriers between different segments of the community and between academia and industry.

 

[ Note: Due to technical difficulties not all sessions are available for on demand viewing. We are trying to resolve the issue. For now, the majority of sessions are available. In one case, the speaker elected to not air his presentation, which we of course respect and have obliged. Next time, come to the event in person and be a part of it :) ]
