pedestal is simple or what? Time for a hackfest?

Hello Boston clojure.
I'm fairly new to clojure but absolutely love it. What gets me going is the overall philosophy of simplicity.
I've been a web developer for number of years, started with C++ cgi back then, have done any web stack available in java to-date, then recently Rails.
Currently, quite naturally for me, diving into web apps options available in clojure. So far have looked at compojure, started picking apart liberator. Just recently came acros pedestal! Some resources on the web suggest that pedestal is the future defacto standard for web development in clojure.

So, finally, here is my pedestal question. It's very cool and stuff. And, I hope I do understand some motivation behind their decisions, but!...
The amount of complexity involved to get things going is over my head. Is it just me? Well, I have to admit -- I am at a very beginning of the clojure endeavor. However, I'm very open to learning new cool stuff that will make me more effective as a web developer. With that in mind. Are their any clojure hacking nights in Boston where people get together and do pair programing working on some cool projects. I know there are regular Boston Ruby hackfest. If nothing like this exists, is it a good time to get one going for clojure in Boston?

Really interesting discussion on hacker news https://news.ycombina...­
Though, it's kinda old --217 days ago. I'm wondering, if much changed since then?
