The most difficult part of mastering any language is knowing how to apply it, in an idiomatic way, to tasks that real software developers encounter every day. This is especially true of Clojure.

Join us for a look at the basics of developing web applications in Clojure. Topics covered in this webcast include:

  • Setting up a webserver with Pedestal
  • Routing requests to controller handlers
  • Rendering templates and views
  • Persisting information to a database (Datomic)
  • General editing and project organization tips
