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.)

Light Table: The strange and wonderful saga of a pure Clojure editor.
On a beautiful spring day in 2012, Chris Granger showed a new concept of an IDE which was simple like an editor but, was full-fledged like IDE. This was way before VSCode and Atom, it showed what Clojure/Script can do with less code and was a preferred editor for people coming to Clojure/Script ecosystem for many years. Now, the time has changed and Chris left the project and so did, other core developers who shaped Light Table-the killer Clojure App. Now, years have gone by, without significant improvement in Light Table, so, yours truly volunteered to revive Light Table. Light Table introduced some awesome ideas of BOT architecture(Behavior, Objects, Tag). Getting Clojure book has also used its code for example in its “State” Chapter. The different ideas of adding plugins, docs embedded into the editor,
eval feature inside the editor is cool and the code that powers it is in pure Clojure/script. And, this being written in the early days of ClojureScript i.e. before ClojureScript hit version 1.x.x, we can compare the ClojureScript as of today and can understand design changes it took from its early days. This talk will then, describe issues having tightly coupled a lot of functionalities with external libraries. Additionally, I would discuss using much better design to re-write Light Table, design inspired by a new-gen editor like Xi editor and the concepts behind toolings from clojure-emacs.
Lastly, I would like to give a (sneak peek)demo/ideas and (will release in a few days) a new Light Table based on new architectures mentioned earlier but, built on the foundation it stood on.
- Introduce Light Table.
- Concept, Ideas, Approach
- Clojure/Script ecosystem at that state.
- Light Table’s awesome features:
- Inline Eval, etc.
- Modern Editors and toolings
- Where did it get wrong?
- Learning from new ideas.
- Embracing already provided Clojure Toolings.
- A new dawn, bringing Light Table to new decade.
- Demo/Ideas of new Light Table based on new architectures embracing old foundations.
Hello, I’m Pratik Karki. I’m a programmer, a lifelong learner, Light Table maintainer, open-source contributor and GSoC‘18 student. I love to pop the hood of software and look inside, move a few things and close the hood,(80% of the time, I mess something up.) I’m a polyglot programmer(IOW: Jack of all trades). I love to talk about concurrency, optimizations, language design, editors and algorithms. I work as a Software Engineer at Leapfrog Technology Inc., Nepal. When I’m not programming, I read a lot, to be a better programmer and my favorite super-hero is Ken Thompson. BTW, I ❤ Clojure!
