Repl driven development using ClojureScript

Submitted Aug 2, 2012

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.
