Ken talks to Dan Boykis, a consultant here at Chariot, about mentoring others remotely, building a JVM from scratch, Clojure, and temporal databases.
This is the Chariot Solutions TechCast #106, with our new sub-series, Meet a Charioteer. In this series, we round up some of our consultants to talk passion projects, opinions, interesting challenges, and anything and everything in between – tech related, or not. Today our host Ken Rimple talks to Anatoly Polinsky. Anatoly has been consulting … Read More
Out of many strong JVM based languages Clojure and Java make a great couple. Coming to Clojure from Spring several years ago Anatoly Polinsky really wished, back then, someone could explain functional programming and Clojure ecosystem to me from the Spring/Java point of view. In this talk Anatoly Polinsky of Chariot Solutions will bridge the … Read More
Clojure programs are built from a small number of generic immutable data structures combined with a large number of pure functions that manipulate these generic data types. The Clojure development experience is characterized by a rapid, dynamic, and interactive REPL-driven experience. Clojure’s new spec library enhances Clojure by providing a system for stating concrete declarative … Read More
Two years ago it already was one of the largest ecommerce platforms in Ukraine. Built in Python/Django it couldn’t handle any spikes in traffic and was hard to maintain and improve. How do you change a platform on the fly? A tale of Clojure and ClojureScript, its incredible ecosystem and a crazy team which brought … Read More
In this talk we’ll examine Clojure’s approach to data and data transformation, which is built from a foundation of immutable values and persistent collections. Clojure offers several models for transformation of collections – sequences, reducers, and transducers. We’ll compare these to each other and to the status quo to see how the functional approach results in less code, fewer bugs, and greater reuse.
In this session we will explore the aspects of Clojure that encourage writing code that is loosely coupled and reusable. We will discuss the benefits of the Clojure approach, and we will see how it applies in practice with a live demo.
In this episode of the TechCast, Ken Rimple and Sujan Kapadia talk to five speakers of Philly ETE – Mike Hartington of Drifty, Jeff Labonski of Chariot Solutions, Martin Snyder of Wingspan, Alex Miller, co-author of Clojure Applied and organizer of The Strange Loop conference, and Andrea Falcone of Twitter.
Monolithic projects will often have tight coupling between components, resulting in codebases that are large and unwieldy. This directly impacts productivity, and translates into costs for the organization. In this session we will explore the aspects of Clojure that encourage writing code that is loosely coupled and reusable. We will discuss the benefits of the Clojure approach, and we will see how it applies in practice with a live demo.
ClojureConj is the yearly get-together for the Clojure community, and Chariot was a sponsor this year as it happened in our backyard. What follows is a quick conversation with Chariot consultants Dan Boykis, Anatoly Polinsky, and Ron Lusk about their week attending the Conj. We apologize for the noise on the recording – people were … Read More
