A ClojureScript Experience Report

As ClojureScript celebrates its first birthday this summer, we now have some real-world experience under our belts, and we can begin to study the ways in which people are building apps with ClojureScript. We can start to see patterns emerge, to understand the areas where ClojureScript really shines, and uncover the places that still need a bit more polish.

In this talk, Jason Rudolph will share the story of his experience building a ClojureScript app, including:

  • Big picture design
  • Data flow
  • Control flow
  • State management
  • Interacting with web services
  • JavaScript interop
  • Debugging

Jason Rudolph is a developer at Relevance, a leading software development consultancy specializing in Ruby, Rails, and Clojure. Jason has more than ten years of experience in developing software solutions for domestic and international clients of all sizes, including start-ups, Dow 30 companies, and government organizations.

    It was a lot of fun and the people were great. There were a couple of people who I had been in touch with before but not met, and others I knew through the Clojure community. They all turned out to be great, and not only was the talk informative, but the conversations before and after were a lot of fun.

    A good thought provoking session. Thanks for taking the time to carefully walk through the design and discuss pros and cons. More like that :-)
