Stuart Sierra demonstrates the power that comes from having the same data representation at all layers: programming language, specification, database, inter-process communication, and user interface. He looks at Clojure, a modern dynamic programming language in the Lisp family, and Datomic, a transactional, distributed database.


Stuart Sierra is a longtime Clojure developer and author of popular open-source libraries such as tools.namespace and Component. He is a developer and consultant at Cognitect, Inc., helping large and small companies use Clojure and Datomic effectively. He is the co-author of ClojureScript: Up and Running (O'Reilly) and Practical Clojure (Apress).

Software is changing the world. QCon empowers software development by facilitating the spread of knowledge and innovation in the developer community. A practitioner-driven conference, QCon is designed for technical team leads, architects, engineering directors, and project managers who influence innovation in their teams.
