"Relevance of ClojureScript" by Jearvon Dharrie

ClojureScript is a compiler for the Clojure programming language that targets Javascript. One of ClojureScript's goals is to provide features that Javascript lacks. Some of these features are macros, concurrent programming and persistent data structures. With the release of ES6 and other Javascript advancements, one might ask "is ClojureScript still relevant?". In this talk, we will discuss how ClojureScript stacks up against ES6. Code examples in Javascript and ClojureScript will be demonstrated. At the end of the talk, an attendee will have enough information to make an informed decision about using ClojureScript.

In his free time he enjoys toying with programming languages. He is currently interested in Clojure and ClojureScript.

"Specter: overcome your fear of nested Clojure data" by Nathan Marz

"Specter: overcome your fear of nested Clojure data" by Nathan MarzClojure revolves around immutable values and manipulation of those values. However, it does not provide good mechanisms for manipulating combinations of those values: like a map of sequences of maps of maps. Code that aims to manipulate these nested data structures complects navigation code with the desired query or transformation. ...
