Dear Bazel users,

I'm happy to announce CONFLANG, the first workshop on configuration languages, colocated at SPLASH 2021. We aim at gathering the programming languages crowd and industry practitioners to share on the particular challenges of designing and using languages specialized in generating, validating and managing configurations. I think that the Bazel/Skylark community may have interesting things to share! Feel free to share the call for presentation to any network or community you see fit.
