GOTO Night: Web Applications in Clojure

Clojure, as a Lisp dialect running on the JVM, is a purely functional language that also takes advantage of the great library support available in the Java world.

As a functional language, it provides great abstractions for developing web applications, particularly because of how it handles HTTP, a fundamentally stateless protocol. In this talk, I will explain the fundamental concepts behind Clojure web applications and how the Clojure libraries harness the power of the existing Java infrastructure to provide state of the art server technology.

Bio Joy Clark is a consultant at innoQ and develops software for the JVM. She appreciates elegant software solutions and her main interests are functional programming with Clojure and developing responsive web applications with progressive enhancement.
