Clojure on Pedestal

Much can be said about Clojure, which makes it an interesting language. For one, it runs on JVM. Another point: it is a Lisp dialect.

During this meeting we will put Clojure on Pedestal... and see what Pedestal can do in Clojure.

Thanks to Konrad for suggesting the topic and agreeing to speak!

 

Micro-abstract: I'm going to focus on reactive/dataflow programming on client side (aka Pedestal App). Not just the Pedestal framework, but also JavaScript interop, integrating with popular JS libraries etc. Hopefully showing that ClojureScript and Pedestal are very usable, fun and interesting at the same time.

It is going to be all about Clojure, but doesn't require much knowledge of the language. Just the rudiments or at least the ability to read some Lisp code should be enough to understand the examples. It will be an intro-level talk. Largely overlapping with Pedestal documentation and the "app tutorial", so you don't need to go through them beforehand.

    BTW In the newest Clojure Gazette there is an interview with Kevin Lynagh who has written an app using ClojureScript, AngularJS and EDN.
    According to him CLJS and AngularJS interop pretty well.

    Interesting

    Somewhat good intro to Podestal.
    Sometimes configuration details were a bit mundane - it's hard to follow keywords in maps of maps. I would concentrate more on high level details instead (for example I didn't fully grasp purpose of all Pedestal elements and without this sometimes I was hard to follow the details).

    Nice follow-up to this could be CSP and Clojure core.async. I know very little about it though and would have to do quite a bit of research. If anyone is familiar - go for it! :-)

    Cannot it be on wednesday? :(

      Not on that week - SCKRK is bi-weekly. All other folks, if there won't be voices against, I'll move to Wednesday.

      Moved.

      Added to abstract.

    On 10/23 there is an SCKRK meetup on FRP: http://www.meetup.com/sc-krk/events/145931322/. That could be a great introduction to this talk.

    How about doing this one a week or two after that?

    • LAFK

      Done - let me know if you're fine with date and I'll announce the talk.

    Clojure is not a Common Lisp dialect *in the slightest*. What on Earth are you smoking?

    • LAFK

      Struck out Common in that. Thanks.

  • Konrad G.

    That's one way to do it. :-) We also could explore Clojure concurrency constructs (perhaps even using Clojure as concurrency lib for Java), or something closer to the ground like writing web apps with most common tools (Ring, Compojure, maybe ClojureScript). Before, after or instead of this talk, whatever sounds interesting.

    • Przemysław W.

      I'm for separate meetings covering different topics: pedestal, ring+compojure, clojurescript, concurrency, etc.

    • Aaron F.

      I'm an Erlanger, would love to have a discussion comparing Clojure with Erlang.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
