October Clojure UG - Speaker-Constantine Vetoshev-AppEngine-m­agic!

NOTE: Must RSVP by MONDAY w/first/last name! Agenda


  • Opening Comments

  • Talk Speaker: Constantine Vetoshev - AppEngine-magic! The appengine-magic library attempts to abstract away the infrastructural nuts and bolts of writing a Clojure application for the Google App Engine platform. The development environment of Google App Engine for Java expects pre-compiled classes, and generally does not fit well with Clojure's interactive development model. appengine-magic attempts to make REPL-based development of App Engine applications as natural as any other Clojure program. 1. Programs using appengine-magic just need to include appengine-magic as a Leiningen dev-dependency. 2. appengine-magic takes a Ring handler and makes it available as a servlet for App Engine deployment. 3. appengine-magic is also a Leiningen plugin, and adds several tasks which simplify preparing for App Engine deployment. Using appengine-magic still requires familiarity with Google App Engine. This README file tries to describe everything you need to know to use App Engine with Clojure, but does not explain the details of App Engine semantics. Please refer to Google's official documentation for details.

    The speaker gave a very interesting lecture on Clojure working with Google APP engine. I was amazed that within emacs, clojure was compiled and output to slime buffer in real-time.

    People in the meetups are smart, and friendly.

    They had announcement in the beginning of the meeting about job opportunities. People like me who are about to graduate may get some useful job information.

    I hope folks don't mind I post something in tangent to what is going on with the meetup a bit. I ran this by Eric and he said it is not too far off from what is allowed. As I have mentioned to Eric, I do have a project requirement for someone who has a Java background and who is interested in working with Python and, of course, Clojure. The person will be working with the backend (Portal & Portlet via Liferay) initially but, eventually, he/she will be taking on Python and Clojure parts.
