Clojure's take on concurrency


Due to the multi-core nature of modern hardware, the only way to have faster software is to do things in parallel. Clojure addresses this need using reference types and a few core functions, and thus abstracts out the difficulty of developing software that performs parallel execution.

In this talk, I will present Clojure's view on concurrency, its usage of reference types and other concurrency mechanisms in the language.
