Presented by Burin Choomnuan

In the world of Go you can get a single binary for deployment.
In Clojure we can achieve the same thing with the help of GraalVM.

This talk will be a journey of writing and leverage one feature of GraalVM
that makes it possible to write performant command line interface (CLI) tools with Clojure - having both fast startup times, and a small memory footprint.

A demonstration of the basic CLI in Clojure and how to leverage GraalVM along with a Clojure library to build simple and useful CLI that can be used in your day to day work.

Burin will share what was learned and the caveats discovered in the process, and hopes to show how to leverage the power of GraalVM’s native image feature to build something awesome for your work.
