This month we have experience reports for using Clojure. Getting married with Clojure by Andrea Crotti As every lazy developer, I took the opportunity of my wedding to see how much I could automate out of it.
The answer is probably not that much, but it was a lot of fun to build an entire website (with a Postgres backend) to manage the wedding, the guests and actually provide a reasonably good looking website to our guests.
The whole website (http://andreaenrica.life/) was done from the ground up with Clojure + Clojurescript (re-frame) and even Garden to generate the CSS, which really shown me that one language to rule them all actually works extremely well.
This talk goes through some of the discoveries and dives more in detail in some of the interesting challenges I faced while creating this website, and how they were tackled with Clojure all the way down.
