Clojure is a modern dynamically typed lisp. Dynamical typing is ofter associated with poor performance and runtime failures. In this talk, I'll present some of the lessons learned on building Clojure/Script systems that are both ridiculously fast and will fail fast on errors. Will compare the performance of mutable, persistent & zero-copy data structures and show how we can use interpreters and compilers to build beautiful and performant abstractions. A quick demo on how to build a simple non-blocking web server that runs idiomatic Clojure to serve millions of requests per sec.
Clojure is awesome, and it can be fast too.
