Building Microservices in Clojure

One of the key tenets of the microservice architecture approach is isolation, allowing individual developers or teams to make local decisions. Clojure, a practical Lisp running on top of the JVM, has already done a lot to increase Lisp’s popularity outside of academic circles. Let’s combine the two to address the remaining doubts about its suitability for the real world! This talk will introduce both the architectural concept and the language, and show how you can combine tools from the Clojure and Java ecosystem to build Clojure-based microservices in practice.
