Workshops: 7 November 2017
Conference 8-9 November 2017

Code Mesh, the Alternative Programming Conference, focuses on promoting useful non-mainstream technologies to the software industry. The underlying theme is "the right tool for the job", as opposed to automatically choosing the tool at hand. By bringing together users and inventors of different languages and technologies (new and old), speakers will get the opportunity to inspire, to share experience, and to increase insight. Through presentations and case studies, we aim to raise awareness and extend the knowledge of all participants, mainstream and non-mainstream users alike.

Thank you everyone who has submitted a talk! The Programme Committee will now review all the submissions and we aim to notify everyone by 7 July.
