Today software applications need to provide a high degree of customization as most customers are looking for individual applications matching their needs. To be able to efficiently manage the variabilities as well as being able to automate the software generation process the paradigm of generative programming gets introduced.
Dive in head first and learn about software system families, domain engineering and feature modeling. Learn techniques to build software application such that, given particular a requirement specification, highly customized applications can be constructed on demand without loosing maintainability and performance.

Of all the strange new JVM languages, Clojure, with its roots in the alien world of Lisp, may well be the strangest. It is also, its proponents insist, by far the most powerful. They'll show you weird and incomprehensible proofs of this-macros, lazy lists, monads, what have you-that may well send academics into orgies of rapturous debate, but the question always remains: "does this have any real world application at all, or are you all just geeking out on us?"
Let's find out! In this presentation, you'll learn how to build a simple web app using ClojureScript on the client side and the Noir web framework on the server. You'll see how Clojure can help you tie your client code and your server code together, giving beautiful interoperability and code reuse. We might even have a go at a macro or two outside of the lab.
