Hello Clojurians,

August Clojure meetup is upon us.

This month we have an overseas speaker - Mr Veha Suwatphisankij who all the way fly from Thailand. He will share with us frontend Clojurescript development with shadow-cljs.

Javascript environment is more significant than ever, but for any Clojurian, writing program in js never be satisfied. In this talk, he will show us how to write frontend code or any js environment code and build it with shadow-cljs which could help to quickly interop cljs code with js world. This talk feature js interop, reagent, re-frame, next.js, and more.

Our second talk will be brought by one of our most active and supportive Singapore Clojure community members - Mr Mauro Lopes topic titled "Writing command-line tools in Clojure".

Mauro’s first approach to Clojure was in April 2012 when he bought the book Clojure Programming to learn a new language in a new paradigm, Functional Programming. After a couple of years reading about Clojure and making some small projects, he worked at Nubank, where he used Clojure everyday. He built codebase along with the team and now Nubank is one of the biggest Clojure codebases in the world. They are featured at as they use Datomic heavily. After that he had another Clojure job, then went on to work at and be partner of a Clojure consultancy. Mauro now is a senior software engineer at TenX Singapore.
