What does immutable data look like in practice when the pattern is followed from the backend to the frontend? What benefits and challenges does immutability present at the system level? uSwitch have been on the clojure & clojurescript path for over 5 years. We have recently explored these ideas above within our microsservices architecture and utilising tools such as AWS Kinesis & Lambda.

In this talk, you will explore a high level overview of the architecture driving our websites and highlight a few emergent patterns such as S3 as a static API, pre-computed projections, postgres as an immutable data store and state change as data.

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.
