JSFoo 2012

It’s like kung fu with JavaScript and objects! All about building full size apps in JavaScript.

Repl driven development using ClojureScript

Section: JavaScript Everywhere Technical level: Intermediate Session type: Demo


To showcase how ClojureScript can be used to build realtime visualizations.


Refreshing the browser is so 2011! Learn how to use Clojurescript to make rich javascript heavy applications. The power of LISP in Javascript land is undulating. Having the luxury of writing back end and front end code in the same language can be extremely empowering to a small(startup) sized team.

I'm going to be giving an overview of ClojureScript, and then dive into a hands on programming session. If time permits, I will try to implement a real-time visualizer from scratch using ClojureScript.


I will be using Emacs as the editor for development, so some EmacsFoo could be helpful to understand the flow of ClojureScript development. And of course, Javascript is a prerequisite.

Speaker bio

I'm a Clojure programmer at Runa. I also have experience with Ruby/Ruby on Rails.

    Wow. I’m looking forward to this. Would you please also have a section for common tasks in js, translated to clojurescript? Event binding, objects(!) and so on.
