Priyatam Mudivarti Clojure Remote 2017 Interview

Priyatam Mudivarti will be giving a talk at Clojure Remote 2017. He will share his experience on building core.async in production.

Follow him on his Homepage, GitHub and Twitter. How did you get into Clojure?

Priyatam Mudivarti: I answered this here. What is your talk about?

PM: The talk is about my experience using core.async at scale in production, some patterns and macros I learnt along the way. Core.async is fascinating since its primitives can be used to build abstractions across the stack, all the way into the ui. Who is your talk for?

PM: Anyone interested in building async pipelines on core.async in aws (sqs), or reuse the ideas on building user interfaces. What do you hope people will take away from the talk?

PM: Start using core.async---it's supported in clojure and clojurescript. Build more libraries and frameworks on top of it, instead of adding 'wrappers' on popular java libraries. What concepts do you recommend people be familiar with to maximize their experience with the talk?

PM: Fundamentals of core.async, queues, and amazon sqs. What resources are available for people who want to study up before the talk?

PM: Timothy's talk in 2013 is a great introduction to core.async. Any talk by Nolan is illuminating. Clojure for the brave and true also has a good chapter. Where can people follow you online?

PM: My online presence has been limited for some time, but an occasional tweet can be found at @priyatam and my website is Are there any projects you'd like people to be aware of? How can people help out?

PM: I have over a dozen projects, and some of them can be found at The greatest help would be to collaborate on a shared goal, like building interactive publishing tools for hackers and writers. Where do you see the state of Clojure in 10 years?

PM: We will have new DSLs built on Clojure/Clojurescript. If Clojure were an animal, what animal would it be?

PM: Panther.
