Dave Orme muses about agile and functional programming.

My current work emphasizes SOA applications using Scala, Kubernetes, and AWS with a React-based SPA front-end. I'm also interested in progressive web applications and developer tools.

Introducing Clojure Foundation, Infrastructure, and Dev on GitHub

At Brad's Deals, I've spent the last year learning Clojure, using it to help rewrite their extract-transform-load data warehouse system on AWS, and have developed a few opinions about how to most effectively use it. In addition, we have several other production systems built using Clojure.

Recently, we have begun extracting common useful utilities from these systems into a set of core libraries on GitHub:

  • clj-foundation – Code to extend or enhance the Clojure environment itself.
  • clj-infrastructure – Infrastructure helpers: AWS, database, etc.
  • clj-dev – Libraries to enhance the development experience.

In future posts, I'll explore some things we have learned that we have shared in these libraries.
