Sneak Preview

Excited to have Chris McCormick joining us this year for a Clojure eXchange keynote!




Chris McCormick is an artist, musician, and hacker working at the interface of code and the arts. For three decades he's been doing weird things with computers and has presented work at Euro Python, Freeplay Independent Game Developers Conference, Electrofringe, Linux.conf.au, and other game/art/tech conferences.

What will you be sharing this year? What inspired you to give this talk?

I'll be giving an update on Thumbelina, the pocket-sized MIDI controller which I spoke about last year; using ClojureScript to build web decentralization tools; and building games tech with ClojureScript and Infinitelives.

Which other talks from Clojure eXchange are you excited about? And why?

Only a couple of other talks are up but I'm especially excited to hear what Mr. Tellman has to say.

What made you want to be a part of Clojure eXchange this year?

Last year was my first Clojure eXchange and there was so much interesting and thought-provoking material and everybody seemed so nice and welcoming.

Do you have any blog posts/podcasts or materials you think people might enjoy reading before coming along to your talk?

Here is a Hacker News post about a games tech thing I built with ClojureScript. It really blew up this week with retweets from e.g. Daniel Higginbotham of "Clojure for the Brave and True" fame:
https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=20723366

More on the game's tech we've been building:
http://infinitelives.github.io/

Info about the Ferret/Clojure-driven MIDI controller can be found here:
https://bzzt.studio/

Tools for decentralization and freedom of expression:
https://github.com/chr15m/dirc
https://github.com/chr15m/bugout

If you could use code/software development to fix anything I society what would it be and why?

Since the time of Pericles, freedom of expression has been a strong foundation of liberal democracy. I am hoping to build more things that play a small part in protecting freedom of expression for human beings.

Climber, ex-skier and programmer, Erik Assum ventures to Clojure eXchange London 2019 where you can await an exciting talk and more.




Erik works as a Clojure programmer at Ardoq, a Norwegian startup in the EA-space. He’s a mainly a backend programmer, but tends to work wherever the code is bad enough. Given time he’ll eventually drift into some sort of devops role while trying to figure out how to run the current project even better.
What will you be sharing this year? What inspired you to give this talk?
My talk this year is “Writing maintainable software in Clojure”. It’s a somewhat scary talk to give, as writing maintainable software in any language is somewhat the holy grail of software development. And for me to suggest I know how to do so might be seen a a bit arrogant :) The inspiration for this talk is that I enjoy working in legacy codebases and while doing so, thinking about what lead to the code being like it is, and how would I have written it today.


Which other talks from Clojure eXchange are you excited about? And why?


Obviously the two keynotes. Chris held a fantastic talk last year, and I think I’ve never seen a less than excellent talk by Zach. Other than that I tend to enjoy talks where I learn about new stuff and Clojure is somewhat just an implementation detail, so I’m looking forward to “Clojure Art” and “Live-coding a Mandelbrot renderer”

What made you want to be a part of Clojure eXchange this year?

I really enjoyed last years conference. Not to small, not to big, and a great hallway track :)

Could you share one big goal you aspire to achieve?

That would be to help people write Clojure programs that are good enough to become legacy software, the only true valuable kind of software.
