Support for asynchronous HTTP is currently being evaluated for Ring 1.6.0. This talk will cover the proposed design, the trade-offs involved, and how to make use of the new asynchronous handlers in an application.
In this talk, you will explore in detail on when it's appropriate to use asynchronous handlers, and learn how to transition from a fully synchronous design to an asynchronous one. Finally, there will be a brief discussion of the current limitations, and some ideas of how you can solve these in future.
The Call for Papers is now open for Clojure eXchange 2017! Submit your talk for the chance to join a stellar line-up of experts on stage. Find out more.
