Alan learned Clojure mostly by writing code to make microscopic optical devices by direct laser writing (DLW). DLW uses a highly focused laser to produce controlled chemical reactions in a custom polymer. Those reactions make the polymer change state from solid to liquid or vice versa in regions of microscopic size. During this talk, you will discover the structures made, the code written to make them, and some of the lessons learned along the way.
