Did Rich Hickey deliver a keynote at Conj 2019?


But lots of other people did 🙂 So far I'd heartily recommend those from Stuart Halloway, Scarlet Spectacular and Ariel Ortiz, and I enjoyed a number of others too. (I haven't watched yours yet @alexmiller !)


thanks for the recommendation! i really enjoyed speaking this year


@U070M4JJC Yours was my favorite talk of the Conj this year. Followed by Stu's and then Mark Bastian's. I'm going to work my way through all the ones I didn't see live over the next week. Love that they all appear online so quickly!


I, like many I suspect, look forward to Rich's keynotes each year. I'm in the middle of creating a business rationale, and a technical rationale, for adopting Clojure+ClojureScript+Datomic at work. I've been watching Conj 2019 talks all weekend, and they are inspiring, informative and encouraging. Some of the talks at Conj 2019 are about value and successes applying Clojure+ClojureScript+Datomic, and Functional Programming concepts, "at scale", which is exactly the kind of story I need to tell.

Rich does not do a keynote every year. As you might imagine, it takes a large amount of time and effort to prepare one (time and effort that is otherwise spent making things in Clojure and Datomic).


I totally get it! I've done some public speaking, and I understand the amount of time required. Thank you, Alex, for your talk at EuroClojure in Bratislava, I was there, and your talk this year.
