An Introduction to Datomic

Rich Hickey has kindly agreed to come speak at the inaugural meetup!

He will be giving a brief introduction to the core ideas behind Datomic, including a look at its architecture and programming model.

We will hopefully have plenty of time for Q&A!

Rich’s talk will be readily accessible to those who are just looking to hear what Datomic is all about. For those of you who have had the pleasure of working with Datomic before, our Q&A session should be a great opportunity for you to ask any burning, technical questions!

    Rich did an excellent job of laying out the principles on which Datomic is based as well as explaining and justifying many design and implementation decisions. As a bonus Rich gave us a sneak peek at the new language independent Datomic console. This was a great talk.

    Great presentation. Does anyone know of good example projects/setups using any of the non-jvm, third-party libs (

    Awesome intro to datomic by the authority himself. The philosophical and technical approaches in the talk were compelling. Only issue was no mic
