Paul deGrandis emphasizes the importance of using specification-as-a-value, a way of unifying core.contracts, test.generative, and external systems under a single common specification in Clojure.
Paul deGrandis lives for magnificent engineering. He loves metrics, taking on the impossible, and making lives better through technology. Currently he is the VP of Engineering at Tutorspree. Previously he worked at PushButton Labs, Etsy.com, OurShelf, and SilverCloud Software as well as working in advanced research.
Clojure/West is the newest conference creation from Alex Miller (aka @puredanger). Alex has been running the Strange Loop conference in St. Louis since 2009, smashing together the worlds of functional and dynamic programming languages, concurrency, distributed systems, web and mobile. Since early 2010, Alex has also been part of a team using Clojure at Revelytix.
Interesting subject, improvable recording
