ClojureScript is a fun, productive language that compiles to JavaScript. Though its syntax is a different its functional immutable nature lets you be productive when developing complex web applications.

Description

ClojureScript is a modern dynamic language that compiles to JavaScript. Though it may not yet be familiar to you, ClojureScript and an architecture built around immutable data structures, is a simpler, more powerful, and easier way to develop complex web applications.

This talk will introduce ClojureScript development, discuss recent developments in the eco-system and examine the benefits and use cases where ClojureScript excels. I’ll also make suggestions reducing the friction of introducing ClojureScript at your company.
