Successful First Edition of Dutch Clojure Day

Last saturday I participated in the first Edition of Dutch Clojure Day. I was not only attending the event I also helped a bit in organising the event, by creating the website.

It was a lot of fun with very interesting people with different levels of clojure experience – from the first timers to the companies who had their (pretty much) entire stack based on Clojure. I also gave a small lightening intro to Pedestal. We had great talks by Michał Marczyk about clojure.rrb-vector and a “live-action” core.async talk by Meikel Brandmeyer. Later in the evening Andrii Mishkovskyi from Screen6 explained the good and not-so-good parts of using Storm. The day ended with Adgoji CEO Alexander van Elsas gave an impression of clojure from the business point of view and their experience in moving to a complete Clojure stack. We intend to post the videos of all the talks very soon.

There was also an unconference where attendees split up into groups to discuss a variety of topics ranging from Clojure + Node Webkit, core.asnyc, javelin etc.

Here are some photos from the event.
