Flow is a ClojureScript library that I've been writing in my spare time over the last four months, allowing developers to write webapps in a declarative style. The idea for Flow came out of my ClojureX talk last year, when I proposed a couple of CLJS UI design patterns that we'd evolved over time - after the talk, I spoke to a few of the attendees who suggested that a library would be very helpful!

I'll be talking a bit about Flow as a library, its usage, and give a few examples of what's possible - but the majority of the talk will be discussing the design and implementation of the DSL, as well as what I've learned about developing in ClojureScript, using macros, manipulating Clojure forms, and writing a compiler. I'll probably also talk about the progression of ideas that led to Flow's current incarnation, time permitting.
