Declarative Amsterdam

Declarative Amsterdam 2021

On 4 and 5 November 2021, the third Declarative Amsterdam conference will take place at CWI, Science Park, Amsterdam.

The conference will focus 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.

We expect that we will be able to hold the conference face-to-face, but we are going to broadcast live as well.

For live attendance we will be following Dutch National Covid rules for meetings. This means that we will accept an EU Covid certificate or equivalent, or a recent (3 days) negative test result. We will be able to maintain 1.5 metres distance between attendees, so wearing a mask will not be compulsory. Should national rules change before the conference, we will adapt to those.
