Episode #24 – Enter the Dragan (aka @draganrocks)

Where we learn all about the expressive power of Clojure running at the speed of raw machine code on CPUs and GPUs.

Main discussion – Dragan dragan

Finally, a few words of advice from Dragan for intrepid Clojurians:

Unfortunately, I cannot recommend any Java-specific or even Python specific book for ML, since all that I have seen concentrate on the easy part (how to call specific functions) but are superficial on the hard part (understanding particular ML techniques).

The most important advice: there is no way around the math… Moderate understanding of at least calculus and linear algebra is a must.

Episode #16 – Malcolm Sparks

Main discussion

• Before Clojure … journey to enlightenment

• JUXT … what it is and how it’s going

• Yada

  • Motivation
  • Did we need yet another HTTP server? Why Aleph over ring?
  • Benefits of HTTP? And why is HATEOAS proving so elusive?
  • On the details of Yada
  • Resource model – defaults, extensibility by data and functions
  • Routing – based on resources, relationship with bidi (plus explanation of bidi)
  • SSE – real-time notification system over HTTP, hiding in plain sight
  • Swagger – the good and the bad
  • Security – resource centred concepts, form-based, integrations with standard schemes
  • Advanced topics – interceptors
  • Future thoughts on Yada 2.0 (if that’s allowed these days!)

 

Community questions (new feature):

From @RobStuttaford on Twitter: @DefnPodcast @malcolmsparks curious how Juxt hires Clj devs. Do you train them up? Hire seasoned pros? If you train, what’s that look like?

From @shaun-mahood on Slack: Question for Malcolm – has he looked at spec much, and if so does he have any thoughts on how things would change in yada if yada were to replace schema with spec?

From @anmonteiro on Slack: not exactly a question but I’d love if the show touched a little on Malcolm’s talk at ClojuTRE, i.e. what they’re doing at JUXT for their website

This one was a little different where Ptzery and Wouter (especially as he even had to use Windows at one point!) pulled out all the stops. Big thanks!!

Logistics and room allocation: Our heartfelt thanks go out to Lynn Grogan from Cognitect, without whom this would not have been possible.
