Kevin writes code that makes pictures of data on the Internet. He lives in Portland, Oregon and spends as much time rock climbing as he does in the REPL. WeatherTable is an HTML5 weather app for the iPhone. Kevin will talk about why they decided to build an app in such an established category (hint: visualization) and why they decided to do it using ClojureScript, HTML, and CSS instead of doing a native ObjectiveC app.
