When we started seeing language inventors, designers and maintainers sitting in the audience we knew we were on the right track.

The choice of technology can make a genuine difference to an engineering program and product efficiency, but often the solution which would be ‘the right tool for the job’ is overlooked because of lack of awareness. Code Mesh showcases how companies of all sizes use a wide range of non-mainstream and emerging technologies and languages in fields like gaming, telecoms, finance, new media, health, etc. It also provides a place for people from various tech communities to meet, share ideas and get inspired from each other.
The event boasts over 50 speakers, amongst them Sir Tony Hoare - creator of the Quicksort algorithm, co-designers of Haskell John Hughes and Phil Wadler, filmmaker and coder Melissa Pierce, creator of F# Don Syme, Chalmers University of Technology professor Mary Sheeran, co-inventors of Erlang Joe Armstrong and Robert Virding, Penn functional programming professor Stephanie Weirich, co-inventor of Julia Stefan Karpinski, designer of Elm Evan Czaplicki and 'The Reasoned Schemer' author William E. Byrd.
“When we started Code Mesh we never imagined it will grow to be a sell-out event in just three years. In the programme committee we put in a lot of work to get an excellent and well balanced list of talks, and it is great to see that people appreciate the results. When we started seeing language inventors, designers and maintainers sitting in the audience we knew we were on the right track” said Francesco Cesarini, organiser and member of the Programme Committee.
