PLEASE VIEW THIS MAXIMIZED FOR THE BEST EFFECT! Wide screen monitors are the best plan. This presentation is pure awesome! Thanks to the presenters and our videographer, Stephen Metzger.

From the abstract: “Both Clojure and Scala target enterprise-sized challenges, but the development styles are very different. We will live-code a small webapp in both languages, on two projectors, while demonstrating how each language influences our thought process, and the toolchain and library best practices. We will discuss how Scala makes you think in types, how Clojure’s interactive development lets you code without restarting your app, Scala’s query DSLs, plus Clojure’s secret weapon: Datomic.”
