This session is straight forward yet still amazing. In 35 minutes we will spin up a Vert.x instance, merge in a Java based project, then add a Python project, and finally do some web sockets. Openshift will allow us to spin up Vert.x with one command and have it running both with normal HTTP and with Web Sockets. From there we can play with all the Vert.x features our heart desires. Oh and did I mention you can run all of this (along with your database) for free. Come in for minimal slides and a lot demo with questions and answers - what could be better.
Clojure has recently joined the panoply of languages that is supported natively by Vert.x. In this talk, we'll explore how Clojure's functional nature and REPL-driven development model are excellent techniques for developing on the Vert.x platform. We'll also look at some of the projects in the Clojure+Vert.x ecosystem that allow you to develop Clojure+Vert.x applications the same way you would develop any other Clojure application.
Vert.x is an amazing asynchronous event-driven framework to create extremely fast, powerful and extensible applications. However, it is a low level framework and doesn't add some great functionality of higher level application frameworks like Spring and Dependency Injection, as well as many other great libraries like Spring Data, Spring Integration, Hibernate, Shiro, etc. These frameworks and libraries have been used for a long time on many complex applications.
Wouldn't it be great if you could combine the two. Greatly increasing your productivity to finishing your applications.
