Building a product with Clojure: Lessons Learned

18th June 2018 in London at CodeNode

There are 1 other SkillsCast available from London Clojurians June Gathering

During this talk, Łukasz Korecki will be taking us through his teams journey with Clojure.

Building a new product can be a lot of fun and you have to choose what technology stack will give you a good head start. Initially, the team chose Ruby on Rails to build a prototype which was great until our users started to grow significantly.

In this talk, I'll share our team's journey with Clojure, what worked for us and what didn't work so well.

We also tried to make Clojure more approachable, so I'll finish by sharing my thoughts on how Clojure could be advocated to appeal to the broader programming community.

Building a product with Clojure: Lessons Learned

Łukasz Korecki

I’m an experienced Clojure, Ruby, and Shell developer. In my professional career I have worked on client side projects (starting with old school tools like Prototype through Backbone to React), back-end applications (written in Clojure, Ruby and Go). Most recently I’ve co-founded NomNom and work as a CTO. I have a thing for LISPs.
