Declarative Amsterdam


The fifth edition of Declarative Amsterdam took place on 2 and 3 November 2023 at the Science Park, Amsterdam. It has been a hybrid conference with the opportunity to attend live or online, for both attendees and presenters.

The conference focuses on the technologies and methods used for declarative programming and declarative data.

Declarative programming is a style of programming that expresses the logic of computation without describing its control flow. It allows you to focus on the ‘what’ of a program, rather than the ‘how’. Declarative programs can be constructed in a fraction of the time, using much less code than a traditional computer program. Declarative methods for programming and data modelling can help avoid making the mistakes that have lead to failing software projects for several decades.

The next conference will take place on 7 and 8 November, 2024.
