27 Reasons to Attend Clojure/West 2016 + Twitter List

Clojure/West 2016 Speakers

I extracted the speaker list plus twitter accounts where available from the speakers list for Clojure/West 2016.

Now you have twenty-seven reasons to attend! Stack those up against any to not attend.

Register: April 15th-16th, Seattle Marriott Waterfront

April 15th is “tax day” in the United States.

Wouldn’t you rather be having fun with Clojure than grubbing around with smudged and/or lost receipts? I thought so. Register today!

Whether the government picks you pocket one day or the next makes little difference.

File early and attend while the tax hounds try to decide if Thai numerals printed in Braille are a legitimate tax return. 😉
