Rich Hickey: Keynote

Reference: Rich Hickey: Keynote

I just rewatched this great talk where Rich Hickey talks about some future directions for Clojure.


  • Different build targets - leaner and fatter builds of Clojure for deployment and development
  • Clojure in Clojure - protocols, records, and deftype at the bottom
  • Code analysis using core.logic - type checking, other analysis
  • Pods - safely encapsulate state change
  • Extensible reader - making Clojure a better format than JSON and XML
