We began in Pune in 2016 and after two editions in namma Bengaluru, we’re delighted to come full circle back to apla Pune (and all those delicious bakarwadis and modaks).
As India’s premiere Clojure and ClojureScript conference, we strive to facilitate the free exchange of ideas between new and experienced programmers alike.
Over the years, IN/Clojure has served as a platform to kickstart a series of Clojure workshops and meet-ups across the country. And it has helped attendees make a strong case for Clojure, and Clojurescript adoption in their companies.
We believe that this edition of the conference, like previous editions will foster the growing Clojure community in Asia.
Who should attend?
Whether you are knee-deep writing macros that write macros, or struggling to escape the beginner’s plateau, or wondering if/why/how to adopt Clojure in your organization, or are in it purely for the joy of learning, IN/Clojure is the event bringing together a great mix of Clojure/Script masters, practitioners, and newcomers from across India and beyond.
We welcome you to join nearly 149 other people and...
- Speak: CFP is open till 20 Jan 2020.
- Learn: We run two all-day hands-on Clojure workshops. Check 'em out here.
- Converse: Derive some sweet cerebral expansion from the talks, the tweetstorms, and the “hallway tracks”.
- Inspire: Trade notes, ideas, tools, and techniques with new and experienced Clojure programmers alike (photostream).
- Be Inspired : Start that project, that meetup, that hack night, that business, that beautiful work of art.
- Sponsor: Help foster the growing Clojure and FP community in India/Asia.
- Network: Meet seasoned practitioners and awesome sponsors (listed below). Hire or get hired. Acquire or get acquired ;-)
- Grab: Some cool swag, and some fun swag, and some zany swag.
- Party: Eat, drink, and make merry with some of the nicest people around.
Plus, this year we enjoy the company of the perennially effervescent Bozhidar Batsov; prolific Clojurist, Emacs fanatic, maintainer of CIDER, and Lisp hacker extraordinaire.
(Oh, and tickets are going, going, going... grab yours while stocks last.)

Fight Complexity with Functional Programming
This talk attempts to familiarize Function Programming (FP) and how it can improve your code quality by turning it more expressive and testable with minimum accidental complexity.
This talk discusses the design scenarios where FP fits the best and why is it the first choice for domains like Machine Learning, Reactive, Big Data etc. Let’s demystify the dreaded Monad and its application in Enterprise software. Let’s go through a demo, based on real events, on how to solve a complex design problem of building a Batch-validation framework for REST services, using Monads, that is 3D Scalable, with dimensions as - Request Batch size, Validation count and No.of Services.
- This talk has 2 stories embedded. In the first part, it explains the differences between Imperative and Declarative styles and demonstrates the Core:Context philosophy behind the declarative style, which helps in separating out How-to-do from What-to-do, using Clojure sequence.
- Then the talk transitions to the second part with a crash course on Monads and Functional Composition.
- The second part takes the Core:Context philosophy to the next level, by applying it to solve a real-world design problem, which is common across many REST services, Batch-Validation.
- The talk demonstrates, how batch validation can quickly get complex when done imperatively, mixing what-to-do(Validations), with how-to-do(Validation Orchestration) and how it can’t be scaled with any of these three dimensions - Request Batch size, Validation count and No.of Services.
- Then the talk offers a Functional Programming (FP) solution, using Monads and Lambdas, which Minimizes the accidental complexity without compromising Time complexity, and can seamlessly scale across all the dimensions.
- Throughout this talk, various types of Monads are introduced and how they fit in the context of the problem.
- This talk attempts to slowly ramp-up the audience on functional programming and towards the end, we touch upon advanced concepts like Function Lifting, Dozen FP Operations for daily Programming like
- This is a fun-filled, code-driven Talk and without getting into definitions (which can be read through books), the attempt is to portray hands-on experience about how FP can help us become better developers.

He started as an Android Developer and switched to server-side as a Full-Stack Developer (Java for Backend, React Js for Frontend). Wearing multiple hats, aided him to perceive Patterns, Solutions and Trade-offs.
He believes Expressive Code is fun and profitable, which enthused him towards Functional Programming. He’s language geek, currently dabbling with other JVM languages like Clojure, Kotlin and Scala, lifting their goodies into his daily programming.
