Brenton Ashworth introduces the Pedestal application library as a way to build rich collaborative applications in Clojure and ClojureScript. Pedestal applies many of the best ideas from Clojure to client application development, allowing developers to create complex applications without having to write complex code.
Brenton Ashworth is a developer at Relevance, Inc. He was involved in the development of ClojureScript, building some of its first tools, as well as working on the first ClojureScript application, TwitterBuzz. Since then, he has worked on ClojureScript One, Pedestal and many other applications which leverage Clojure from the database to the UI.
Strange Loop is a multi-disciplinary conference that aims to bring together the developers and thinkers building tomorrow's technology in fields such as emerging languages, alternative databases, concurrency, distributed systems, mobile development, and the web.
