React is one of the most successful and fast moving platforms. Thanks to its great interop and focus on immutable data, ClojureScript was able from the early days to put React to good use and build on its foundation. The more React expands and improves (see the recent announcements of Create RN Apps and React VR), the more ClojureScript does too. This talk features demos showing how easy it was for us to build Native and VR applications and discusses the pros and cons of the tech stack developed by Facebook (React, GraphQL, Relay, Flux) and how to take it further with ClojureScript.
Frankie Sardo has a long background in mobile apps development. Once he discovered Clojure he left the frontend to experience the joy of working with immutable data and functional programming. Since the very first release of ClojureScript his aim has been to use his favorite language to write user interfaces that don’t make you want to set your hair on fire.
