Pre-West Prep: Zachary Kim
Sign up for weekly Clojure tips, software design, and a Clojure coding challenge.
Zachary Kim's talk at Clojure/West is about writing native mobile applications in Clojure.
Clojure on mobile is getting a lot of attention recently. ClojureScript has always allowed for WebKit development on the iPhone. Kevin Lynagh wrote Weathertron, released in June 2013, which used ClojureScript and Angular.js. And more recently Mike Fikes has created an Objective-C/ClojureScript bridge called Goby. And of course, there's a lot of excitement now about React Native and the ClojureScript workflow for using that. Mike Fikes is also working on a ClojureScript REPL for iOS. Zachary Kim does not give us any clues in the talk description, so we'll just have to make do with these.
