Presentation: "Clojure in the Field"

Time: Thursday 11:45 - 12:45

Location: Olympic

Abstract: Clojure is getting a lot of positive buzz, but what is it like building and shipping a real application? In this talk, we will cover the good, the bad, and the ugly of commercial Clojure development, including:

* BDD meets FP: how we adapted spec and test practices for functional code

* To wrap or not to wrap: working with Java libraries

* The learning curve: training a team of non-Clojurists on Clojure

* What you will wish for: third-party libraries you should know about, plus some that don't exist yet

* Good names or die: living without object context

* Shipping it: how to manage staging and deployment of Clojure code
