For anyone interested in using the JVM to run a language other than Java, and even for those interested in how it runs the Java language, and definitely those interested in language development, the annual JVM Language Summit held in September has become the primary place to be.
You get the idea by taking a look at some of the talks from last years summit: From Clojure, PHP on the JVM, the vicissitudes of running Ruby on the JVM, to Closures on the JVM. And you will also see that you will be hard pressed to find more expert speakers in these subject areas in the industry.
And this year the format has changed to include more interactive workshops, as well as the traditional talks, to spread the goodness even more effectively.
If you're hesitating: stop it: John likes to keep this summit small and focussed, usually under 100 participants. Sign up here.
