Om: think locally, React immutably - Dann Toliver
What if your application could have unlimited undoability with no complexity or performance cost? What if you could refresh your entire UI for every change without paying the DOM tax? We'll examine a new framework called Om that makes this possible. Along the way we'll encounter persistent data structures, the React framework, cursors, lens, zippers, CSP via core.async and a little ClojureScript. We'll cap it off with a demo of these concepts working together and some ideas for future directions.
Pizza will be arriving at 6:15pm. See you there!
