Love using Clojure but can't get your static typing colleagues to get with the LISP programme. Well Javascript (the Scheme in the browser) is your friend. It's already dynamic and uses maps for everything, it's like a second home!

Not only that but lots of Clojure code has already been ported (include the Clojure language itself, twice) or has inspired pure Javascript equivalents.

In the talk I'll introduce ImmutableJS, Mori, Wisp, Omniscient and maybe even Clojurescript.
